RG Q1 - Steve Darcis[26] beats Jean-Rene Lisnard 6-7 7-5 9-7 after 3 hours 44 min.

First set lasted 89 minutes (Voo will tell us but it must be among Top 6 or 7 longest that we have data for) The Longest Singles Matches, best of five sets (21st century)

Another heartbreaking loss for the legend.

Good for Pink Princess.

Thank you, Steve. Thank you for taking this. But nearly 4 hours, and with your brittle body, I expect a loss to Dutra Da Silva. Hope he proves me wrong.

I said somewhere lately: the longest '7-6' sets last between 90 and 100 minutes.

Anyway this is qualifying match so we shouldn't take it too seriously

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career

had some dollars on lisnard at 3.75 so i followed all of this.

Lisnard served for the match twice in the final set at 6-5 and 7-6, then had two break points he failed to take at 7-7.

Heartbreaking loss if there ever was one.

Lisnard saved a setpoint on darcis's serve in the tb as well.

Lisnard also was up 3-1 in the 2nd set, and blew two chances to go up a 4-1 and double break.

Brutal. At least at slams there's some chance for recovery if he does quality though - do this at an atp event, sat/sun qualis, and you're toast.
