I've never seen Melo. His height (on wimbledon.org or atptennis.com) is 2.03. Is that truth? If yes, only Karlovic is taller from active players

Re: A.Sa/M.Melo def. P.Hanley/K.Ulyett 5-7 7-6 4-6 7-6 28-26



Brazilian duo won a long match in the 1st round as well. After 3 hours 21 minutes they beat Benneteau/Mahut 6-7 6-3 7-6 2-6 6-3. What an amazing tournament for them

From atptennis.com

The previous record for the most number of games in a Wimbledon men’s doubles match was 98, set in 1966, when American Eugene Scott and Niki Pilic of Yugoslavia ousted American Cliff Richey and Torben Ulrich of Denmark 19-21, 12-10, 6-4, 4-6, 9-7.

5:58h ?

It was the second longest match in duration in Wimbledon history, falling just 11 minutes short of the all-time record set in 2006 when Mark Knowles and Daniel Nestor beat Simon Aspelin and Todd Perry 5-7, 6-3, 6-7, 6-3, 23-21.

BBC said 6:13

Re: A.Sa/M.Melo def. P.Hanley/K.Ulyett 5-7 7-6 4-6 7-6 28-26



I need a help from Portuguese speakers. I don't know Portuguese but from this text I've understood they saved 4 match points:
- first yesterday before the rain break
- second at 18:17
- third and fourth at 21:20

Pleas read it and correct me if I'm wrong:

A partida teve início ainda na segunda-feira e tantas foram as paralisações pela chuva que mesmo o placar oficial precisou de tempo para identificar a duração total do jogo. A confirmação veio mais tarde: 5h58. Há dois dias, a maratona foi paralisada definitivamente quando Ullyett e Hanley lideravam por 8/7 no quinto set, já tendo perdido match-point e após os brasileiros terem se safado de tiebreak duríssimo na parcial anterior. Na terça, disputaram outros games parelhos, mas precisaram deixar novamente a quadra com desvantagem de 14/13.

Mas quem esperava conclusão rápida nesta quarta-feira se enganou. Na seqüência do duelo, os cabeças 6 ainda estiveram sempre no domínio, com games mais fáceis e tiveram ao menos três match-points pela frente, o primeiro no 18/17 e dois no 21/20, mas vacilaram. Com garra acima do normal, Sá e Melo deram o troco no 53º game da parcial e sacaram para fechar em seguida.

Hi Claudinha
Do you know something more about that match. For example: did Marques save any match points?
