On June 24, John Isner and Nicolas Mahut finally finished the longest match in tennis history. Their match lasted three days and over 11 hours.
The first four sets looked like any typical tennis match, but the fifth set put this game in the record books. Isner finally beat Mahut 70-68.
This match made me think about the longest games in sports history and where Isner vs. Mahut stands in the record books.
On the next slides are five of the longest games in sports history. Some of these are obvious to the average sports fan, and others will be very surprising.
