The latest a tennis match has ever been played? Play ends at 3.23am!!



Becker and Novak currently at 3-3 in the 3rd set, with the time approaching 3am in Tokyo

Seriously, the organisers have lost the plot. I understand they wanted to get matches done because of the rain and stuff but this is ridiculous.

Anyone think of a match that's gone on later than this? I remember a few US Open matches going late, but none after 2am

This is a shame, hopefully they do not have to do a press conference. After all, the reporters will have probably let anyway. I bet they will schedule Becker first tomorrow

I went to a concert last night that started at 11:30pm. Maybe this is a trend.
