:eek: :eek: :eek:
The new record of the most games in the 5th set!
Previous record - Wimbledon 1985:
H.Gunthardt / B.Taroczy - P.Annacone / C.Van Rensburg 6-4 2-6 6-4 6-7(4) 24-22

It's also the new record of the most games played - 102!
Don't know about match time: record for doubles in a Grand Slam event is/was 6 hours 9 minutes (Knowles/Nestor def. Aspelin/Perry 5-7 6-3 6-7(5) 6-3 23-21

How many MP's did they save?

So, three new records in one match (Open Era):
- the most games in all (102)
- the most games in 5th set (54)
- the longest doubles match (6:13 h)

One thing is sure - it is one of the most amazing matches in tennis history :D
