First set lasted 89 minutes (Voo will tell us but it must be among Top 6 or 7 longest that we have data for) http://www.menstennisforums.com/showpost.php?p=5194800&postcount=24

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 ;)

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.
