Yesterday, US player John Isner won the longest tennis match in history by defeating Nicolas Mahut by 70-68 in a final set at Wimbledon. The competition lasted more than eleven hours spread over three days:

Picking up at 59-59 in the fifth set Thursday, the match continued on serve with no break points until the American hit a backhand passing shot to finish the contest in front of a packed crowd on Court 18.

Glad to see they recognize the loser as much as the winner. He deserves it for the endurance (and obviously great play to make it last that long of a match). kudos to both!
