This is one record that we’ll venture will never come close to being broken. For three days American John Isner and Frenchman Nicolas Mahut had a truly epic battle in the first round of this year’s Wimbledon, with the final set lasting more than eight hours. The line was an astounding 6-4, 3-6, 6-7 (7), 7-6 (3), 70-68. "It's great, something Nic and I will share forever, really," Isner
. "I never said five words to the guy prior to the match. When I see him in the locker room at tournaments, we can share this.” The winner, Isner, went down in just over an hour in his next match.
