    its still going, at 59 games all in the 5th set.

  2. I am digging this. Champions! So incredible!! To still be walking after such a feat is mind-boggling! I'm so impressed.

    They had a standing ovation too with the crowd calling "we want more!"
  3. This is just ridiculous. It's going to leave the eventual winner exhausted and uncompetitive for the next round.

    The silly boffins who run the Grand Slam need to ditch their pride and change the rules to a tie-breaker after a certain number of games in the fifth set.
  4. Will it also get the record for the lowest quality match ever, too?
