Cool Long hard road from "20-18" to "70-68"

Nicolas "Phantom" Mahut - the player who within one week was involved in the longest singles deciding 3rd and 5th set of 133 years in the Grand Slam history



Archer encouraged me to create a new thread, and I think it's a good idea to emphasize the 2010 Wimbledon: J.Isner d. N.Mahut 6-4, 3-6, 6-7(7), 7-6(3), 70-68 achievement from the perspective of the whole tennis history back to 1877 when the first Wimbledon was held. So, the idea of this thread is to show all the longest singles and doubles sets in terms of games...
