Please note the doubles rubber between Tomas Berdych and Lukas Rosol (CZE) and Marco Chiudinelli and Stanislas Wawrinka (SUI) lasted 7 hours 1 minute and is the longest Davis Cup match on record (in terms of duration). The previous longest was the fifth rubber of the 1982 World Group quarterfinal between John McEnroe (USA) and Mats Wilander (SWE), which lasted 6 hours 22 minutes.
