The longest set played at ATP level

The first 1h 28min set of Djokovic-Verdasco Rome 2010 QF makes me wonder what is the longest set played on ATP level ?

Voo ???

Re: The longest set played at ATP level

Massu def Koubek 6-4 4-6 6-4 7-6(6) in Davis Cup a year ago. Fourth set lasted 1 hour 48 minutes

Massu is a tennis hero and deserves the respect of MTF.

Re: The longest set played at ATP level

I remember an old match in 1996 in the QF of Roland Garros, Courier VS Sampras. Jim won the first set 7-6 and it took over 1 hour and 40 minutes.

VAMOS EN 2013

FERNANDO VERDASCO, GRIGOR DIMITROV & FELI LOPEZ

Re: The longest set played at ATP level

No way, most of points were aces or winning serves.
It took at most 1 h 15 min I think.

Re: The longest set played at ATP level

I think the sets in that match were pretty evenly spread time-wise.
