Marathon Wimbledon match continues today

June 24, 2010 5:25:19 AM PDT
The longest match in tennis history was again suspended by darkness at the All England Club. John Isner of the U.S. and Frenchman Nicolas Mahut are tied at 59-all in the decisive fifth set. It will resume today after darkness halted play with the score knotted at two sets apiece. They have been playing for a total of exactly 10 hours. The fifth set alone has lasted 7 hours and 6 minutes. That's enough to break the full-match record of 6:33, set at the 2004 French Open.
