Is this the longest 3-set-match ever?

I don't count the Best-of-3 matches without 3rd set Tiebreak like the Olympics. Of course Del Potro - Federer (SF) was longer.

But this is really the longest match I can remember.

Of course it is on outdoor clay.

The most ridiculous bit about it is that it finished 3-6, 7-6, 6-3 to Kirche! Not even as if it was very tight in all three sets! Was expecting a sort of 7-6, 5-7, 6-7 match.

Kirche 2/10 bps, Kavcic 3/22 bps.

Holy crapola. How the heck do you play three sets of average length 87 minutes? :-)

You can understand with Djokovic-Nadal, that match had so many long rallies, and they were both timewasting something stupid.

According to Deathless Mortal the sb was already at 1 hour 17m when they started

youzhny vs. klizan yesterday at St. Petersburg SF also 3h48min with 6-7 (11), 6-4, 7-6 (3) for Klizan..

edit:
btw, how do you get those links to these stats-pages of specific matches like e.g. http://www.atpworldtour.com/Share/Match-Facts-Pop-Up.aspx?t=891&y=2008&r=6&p=M605

i cant seem to find them :/

edit2:
ah i think i found it. you have to search for the head2head and then you will find the match you want and then click on "stats". :)
is this the way you do it?

:eek: And it's only qualifying - that's rough.

Massu probably has 10 three set matches longer than this :spit: That's probably true.
