Classic Match of the Week

This week we take a look at a Wimbledon match that went down into the history, as the longest ever in the sport. I’m sure you remember the incredible 2010 first round match between American John Isner and Frenchman Nicolas Mahut. It lasted for 11 hours and 5 minutes on Court 18. Enjoy the video below.

Isner won 6–4, 3–6, 6–7(7–9), 7–6(7–3), 70–68. The match began on the Tuesday at 6:13pm and ended on 4:48pm on the Thursday.
