The longest tennis match in history

If you’re a tennis nut like I am, you might not forget the famous match played by John Isner and Nicolas Mahut at Wimbledon in 2010. It was played over three days and the final score 6–4, 3–6, 6–7(7–9), 7–6(7–3), 70–68 for a total of 183 games. see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isner%E2%80%93Mahut_match_at_the_2010_Wimbledon_Championships.

I am sure that this game was the basis for Seven Days in Hell, an upcoming HBO program that has one of my faves, Andy Samberg, playing an André Agassi-like character (at least in terms of hair) vs. a vacuous Brit played by Kit Harington. There are appearances by Serena Williams, Chris Everett, John McEnroe, etc..

July 11, 10pm, on HBO.
