Challenger Trnava, Qualies: Trusendi d. Ciric 75 46 76 (4) in 3h 48 min.

Is this the longest 3-set-match ever?

I don't count the Best-of-3 matches without 3rd set Tiebreak like the Olympics. Of course Del Potro - Federer (SF) was longer.

But this is really the longest match I can remember.

Of course it is on outdoor clay.

Kirche 2/10 bps, Kavcic 3/22 bps.

Holy crapola. How the heck do you play three sets of average length 87 minutes? :-)

You can understand with Djokovic-Nadal, that match had so many long rallies, and they were both timewasting something stupid.
