Wimbledon
 
Not a huge tennis fan, but there is a match that is approaching the 8 hour mark on ESPN2. If someone doesn't break serve, this match may never end. Wonder if they will reconsider the fifth set tiebreaker?

117th game of the final set? How is either player still standing?

The match is suspended for the second day due to darkness. Tied at 59 in the fifth set.

Amazing. The final set has already lasted longer than any match in Wimbledon history.

I bet those guys are going to hurt for tomorrows finish! That takes a lot of mental toughness to hang in there for that long.

Day three of this match. Tied at 66 in the fifth set.

Still no one is able to break serve.

It's over. Isner wins 70 to 68 in the fifth set. 11:05 was the final time.

Great match and something we will probably never see again.
