Court

2010 Wimbledon Championships – The American 23rd seed John Isner starts his first round match against French qualifier Nicolas Mahut. Over the course of the next three days, both athletes continue to engage in a total of 183 games. Their active play time mounts up to 11 hours and 5 minutes, resulting in what will be known as "the endless match".

Isner eventually wins with a final score of 6–4, 3–6, 6–7(7–9), 7–6(7–3), 70–68. It remains, by far, the longest match in tennis history in terms of both duration and number of games.
