There is no way of knowing how long the longest tennis match ever was, but the longest match in recorded history was the 2010 Wimbledon match between Isner and Mahut.

The match set several tennis records, including:

  • Longest match (11 hours, 5 minutes).
  • Longest set (the fifth set required 8 hours, 11 minutes).
  • Most games in a set (138 in the fifth set).
  • Most games in a match (183).
  • Most aces in a match by one player (Isner, 113).
  • Total aces in a match (Mahut's 103 aces, the second highest number by a player in a match, brought the total to 216).
  • Consecutive service games held (168: 84 for each player).
