Marathon Wimbledon match suspended at 59-59 in 5th
WIMBLEDON, England (AP)—The longest match in tennis history has been suspended for darkness at 59-59 in the fifth set at Wimbledon.
The first-round match between 23rd-seeded John Isner of Tampa, Fla., and qualifier Nicolas Mahut of France was halted at dusk Wednesday. It already had been suspended because of fading light Tuesday night after the fourth set.
They have been playing for a total of exactly 10 hours—7 hours, 6 minutes in the fifth set alone, enough to break the full-match record of 6:33, set at the 2004 French Open.
