Longest Tennis Match Ever in Tennis History

John Isner

Nicolas Mahut

The longest game in tennis history came to end today as American 23rd seed John Isner beat France's Nicolas Mahut 6-4 3-6 6-7 7-6 70-68 in the first round at Wimbledon - after more than 11 hours and 5 minutes play.
After 11 hours and five minutes on Court 18 and with a raft of records having been broken, 23rd seed Isner found two crucial winners to break the resistance of the Frenchman in the 138th game of a remarkable set.
At Last !!

The pair first walked on court on Tuesday, and Isner - who hit 112 aces in the match - secured a 6-4 3-6 6-7 (7/9) 7-6 (7/3) 70-68 triumph to bring the curtain down on one of the most remarkable episodes in the history of the All England Club.
