The first 1h 28min set of Djokovic-Verdasco Rome 2010 QF makes me wonder what is the longest set played on ATP level ?

Voo ??? :)

Massu is a tennis hero and deserves the respect of MTF.

I remember an old match in 1996 in the QF of Roland Garros, Courier VS Sampras. Jim won the first set 7-6 and it took over 1 hour and 40 minutes.

nole vs rafa in madrid last year was the longest 3 set match in the open era, someone should check that one

No way, most of points were aces or winning serves.
It took at most 1 h 15 min I think.

I think the sets in that match were pretty evenly spread time-wise.

What about Lopez-Muller at AO last year? That sounded pretty wild.

Massu ,Nadal,Djokovic and Verdasco are the players who take the longest to serve, so its not surpise they are involved in the longest sets played :o

Yeah, amazing tennis by PHM, probably the best ever played against an in form Nadal. PHM was so happy and exhausted for winning that set that he completely collapsed afterwards

Well, if we're talking about fifth sets with two games advantage there were more than 2-hours sets. Roddick's 21-19 over El Aynaoui lasted 2 hours 23 minutes.

This isn't the record for the longest (regular) set. It belongs to another Massu DC match, and it's one minute longer:

I'm a little bit surprised that I changed Sela-Massu into Koubek-Massu in my stats thread. :o :scratch: Anyway it's corrected now :yeah:
