Isn't Daemonguy at this? I guess tonight the longest tennis match in history occurred with John Isner versus Nicolas Mahut and they ended up having to suspend it because it was getting too dark. The previous record was 6 hours, 33 minutes with Fabrice Santoro versus Arnaud Clément at the 2004 French Open. This record was beat today at a whopping 10 hours of play. Not only did they set the record in the total duration of time played, but also the number of games played that had occurred in the last set before being suspended.

I cannot even imagine how exhausted you would be after 10 hours of grueling tennis. I remember back in the day when I played on varsity in high school how exhausted I would be after 2-3 hours. Crazy!

I remember one of the longest Wimbledon matches between Roger Federar and Rafael Nadal years back where Nadal won it.

Heard about that on the way into work. I have no idea how they are going to be able to move their arms today. That's incredible. And yeah Daemonguy is there.

Its funny because deamonguy often complained about how long some of the games were. I wonder if he was at this particular match?

Who are you cheering for the final match of the Wimbledon 2010 between the 12th ranked Tomas Berdych and the 2nd ranked Rafael Nadal? I am going for Nadal!
