Isn't this a mistake?



Wasn't Muller - Lopez longer (6 hours or so)?

Re: Isn't this a mistake?

Which Muller Lopez match are you talking about ? I looked up their record on ATP and found that they played each other only 1 time before, at AO 06. Lopez won in 155 mins.

Re: Isn't this a mistake?

the longest match before this was a Becker one in 1991, the Muller-Lopez one wasn't as long as far as I know

Look on Lopez's player profile: http://www.australianopen.com/en_AU/...h/atpl397.html I'm pretty sure that was more than 5 hours.

Re: Isn't this a mistake?

They kept saying Muller/Lopez was long, but I believe it was later determined that it was incorrect, someone messed up the timing, and Muller/Lopez was 4hours something.

Re: Isn't this a mistake?

It was a mistake, the official time was wrong because of some problem with the official's pda, so originally the official time was 70 minutes longer than the actual match time. Once they sorted out the mistake it turned out the Muller/Lopez match did not break any records. The original official stats for this match were all screwy (e.g., no aces for either of them for the entire match).
