After 11 hours, John Isner has defeated Nicolas Mahut in the longest tennis match on record. The final came to 70-68. The match stretched over 3 days, each day having to be suspended due to darkness.

The matched picked back up at 59-59 on Thursday. The match surpassed 11 hours over the course of 3 days. The fifth set itself lasted over 8 hours.

Isner had finished with a total of 112 aces and Mahut 103.

Many records are meant to be broken, but I think that it is clear that this record will stand for a long time…

For you athletes out there, what would you do if your team went into 11 hours of play?
