At Wimbledon 2010, there was a recorbreaking match between Isner and Mahut. It is the longest match ever recorded, but there could have been longer matches that weren't recorded.

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).

The longest tennis match was just recently in the 2010 Wimbledon, between John Isner and Nicolas Mahut. The match had a total playing time of 11 hours, 5 minutes, and consisted of 183 games. The match was suspended due to the issue of light and continued the next day. John Isner eventually won, but lost in 3 straight sets in a match lasting about an hour and fifteen minutes.
