The longest tennis match in history is happening right now at Wimbledon

Found 23rd Jun 2010
Between John Isner (USA) and Nicholas Mahut (FRA).

It is currently 35 all in the fifth set. The match has lasted an incredible seven hours and is still going. Incredible endurance from these two. The tennis is still really high quality as well.

Isner has served 78 aces. Good lord.

Mahut isn't too far behind that either.

I know. Incredible.

I have to say that Isner looks the most tired (not that they're both not knackered, of course). It's just that his serve is better, so we have this outrageous deadlock.

tbh,personally I just think its boring when it gets to this stage-I know its very rare to go this long,but Im just finding it tedious.

To be fair though, the tennis quality is still high. But either way it's not about the quality of the match at this point; this is absolutely unprecedented in terms of length and has simply never been seen before. That's why I can't stop watching it.

38 all now. 7 hours 20 minutes.

Its crap.

Reminds me of the friends episode were ross and joey see how long they can play catch without dropping the ball except there isn't any jokes in this.

41 all now. can't be bothered to keep watching

47 all. Isner looking tired & only really putting any effort into his serves.

I wonder if they can stretch it to 10 hours.

I said that at 35 all. Somehow he's still going.

One game away from 50 all.

Lol 50 50

Prediction:

Mahut breaks the serve then bottles his own serve for the match so we're back to square one!

58-57 now!

58/57 Isner leads.
I think they are closely matched.

wonder who predicted this at the bookies :-)
