If You Thought Baseball Games Were Long....

Imagine being at Wimbledon and witnessing a match that took eleven hours and five minutes to complete over three days.

American John Isner defeated Nicholas Mahut of France in five sets by a final score of 6-4, 3-6, 6-7, 7-6, 70-68.

That's not a typo. The fifth set went 70-68.

Isner now advances to the second round. I think he might be exhausted. Exhilarated but exhausted.

Well, at least there are no vuvuzelas at Wimbledon. Quiet please.
