Almost as drawn out as Lost but without the ridiculous plot twists, John Isner and Nicolas Mahut tore up the record books with their 11-hour marathon.
In the longest game of all time, with the most aces and the highest number of neck related injuries in a tennis crowd since Martina Navratilova’s shorts split and seven people snapped their own necks trying to look away, Isner finally triumphed with an incredible score of 70-68 in the final set. He now gets five minutes to rest up before playing his third round game.
You can’t help but feel a little sorry for Mahut and those who backed him after that heroic effort.
