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.

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

AO 09 R128?????????

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

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.

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).

1991, Boris Becker def Omar Camporese 5:11
Muller Lopez was 4:23 (originally mistakenly clocked at 5:34)
Nadal/Verdasco 5:14

For this you would need to have them first. No good when all the month's dole went already into booze.

strangely enough, the longest match had the least games played in it, is that due to extremely long rallies or just Nadal taking his time after every point? I guess it's both.

Looking at the scorelines, Roddick and El Aynaoui should have played around 6 hours but it was a match dominated by huge serves (Roddick 27 aces, El Aynoui 25) and forehand winners in one or two shots after the serve. They played almost 100 total points more: 484 to 385 from the Spaniards match.
