Research in the Library of Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum would suggest that the longest rally in a tournament was one in which the ball passed over the net 643 times. The competitors were Jean Hepner and Vicky Nelson at Richmond, Virginia USA in October 1984. Nelson went on to win the match. (posted by the Commercial Manager, Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum).

The longest ever rally recorded in a competition was in 1999 by Andre Agassi and Pete Sampras in the semi final of the US Open. The ball was hit over the net a bet-deciding 51 times before Pete hit the ball out.

Impressive how Sampras was able to establish that record at a tournament he didn't even play in! :worship: ;)

yes I thought the same : 51 sounded quite short to me comparing to these "crocodiles" matches.

The longest rally in terms of time is 10 hours and 38 minutes set by identical twin brothers Angelo & Ettore Rossetti on August 18-19, 2007 at the Milford Indoor Tennis Club in Milford, CT. During that time they talled 19,490 strokes.

Ettore Rossetti, Shelton, CT USA


followed by:


The longest rally in US recorded (and verifiable with video) is Rob Peterson and Ray Miller of the US of 17,062 non stop shots. These record attempts must be documented by video...all others are not authentic if not verified.

john Pierce, Salt Lake City, USA


and then:


The Rossetti Rally of 19.490 strokes over 10 hours and 38 minutes in Aug of 2007 was video taped in its entirety. It stands as the longest US record on strokes and time and an unofficial world record on time.

Angelo A. Rossetti, Hamden, CT, USA


LMAO @ the retarded Rossetti brothers and the efforts they've gone to in order to stake their claim as the players of the longest rally.

What an absolute family of champions! :retard:

I always knew the Guardian was full of sh*t and this proves it. Pete and Andre did not even meet in the 1999 U.S. Open.

Signatures the size of yours shouldn't be allowed.
