You shouldn't be surprised if I didn't add some matches around 4 hours. Usually I count match time from all Grand Slam matches with solid scorelines on official websites, and later on ATP website there is different match time. I don't know why it happens often, the same with number of aces

Most of the information can be found in this thread but again, I think great stuff like that just drown in the sea that is General Messages forum.
By all means correct me if there's anything wrong.

In a match that has started on Saturday and finished on Wednesday (due to 7 rain delays and the traditional [yet stupid] Sunday off) Melo/Sa def. Hanley/Ullyet 7-5, 6-7 (4), 6-4, 6-7 (7), 28-26. It was the longest 5th set ever in any match, singles or doubles (tied with one Wimbledon 89' Singles qualifier).
The game lasted 5h 58m (the last set alone 3h 5m) - they just missed the GS Doubles record (set in Wimbledon 2006) by 11 minutes. The victors saved 4 MPs in the decider.

The longest decisive set is two games longer:
Ireland/Arthurs def. Brandi/Messori 6-3, 3-6, 29-27 (Australian Open '97). At 4h 36m, this is the longest 3-setter ever, at least since tie-breaks were introduced.

Going through the net, I've found 3 longer sets:
Dick Leach/Dick Dell def. Schloss/Mozur 3-6, 49-47(!!!), 22-20 (Newport '67)
Stan Smith/Van Dillen def. Cornejo/Fillol 7-9, 37-39, 8-6, 6-1, 6-3 (Davis Cup '73)
Segura/Olmedo def. Segal/Forbes 32-30, 5-7, 6-4, 6-4 (Wimbledon '68; GS record)
It’s worth mentioning Segura was 47 at that time.

Surely at least the first one must have lasted over 7h, but I haven't been able to find out more about it. Do you know more about these three?
Even that one is already gone as the longest pro set regardless of singles or doubles

Once and for all (and sorry for the triple-post): the OP picture clearly shows the match time of Santoro-Clement being 6:35.
Why does pretty much any other source has it at 6:33?

^ I haven't any idea, thankfully after Isner/Mahut, the previous record isn't so important anymore

Hi Voo.
Take a look at this search query... It's possible the writer made a mistake, but the LA Times is no Wikipedia. In any case this may be the source for these numbers, but I guess we won't know for sure until you meet one of them

An example of the case at the AO 2004 Safin's time

Code:
Safin's Total Time at 2004 Australian Open - 21 hours 6 minutes (1266 minutes) 

Round                IBM* (& ATP site)  ITF**    Difference
1st RD (vs. Vahaly)     2:26           2:28       +2 min
2nd RD (vs. Nieminen)   2:39           2:42       +3 min 
3rd RD (vs. Martin)     3:25           3:25   
4th RD (vs. Blake)      3:08           3:08   
QF (vs. Roddick)        3:23           3:25       +2 min
SF (vs. Agassi)         3:42           3:43       +1 min
F (vs. Federer)         2:15           2:15    
-------------------     ------         ------     -------
Total’s                 20:58          21:06      +8 min
* - Time according to 2004 Australian Open official site
** - Official time according to umpire’s scorecard (via ITF Media Notes)

But also on the ATP official site in the Safin's career highlight section i found this info - "2004 - Began 
season as runner-up at Australian Open (l. to Federer)...Played a total of 21 hrs. and six mins. and his 30 
sets played was most in a Grand Slam in Open Era, tying Harold Solomon's mark set at Roland Garros in 1976". 

So it's a bit weird that in one site we have two variants of infos. They get the time stats via IBM, while 
21h 06m - via ITF post-tournament info.
I think the main difference is that the umpire on his device and the IBM-staff (who started supporting grand slams in 90's) on the tennis court timer, start the time differently. The chair umpire starts the time when calls "time" right after warm-up, while IBM may start the stopwatch after umpire says "play" right before the 1st serve, or maybe something else.
The official time in any case is determined by a umpire’s scorecard, not by on-court timer

I think there's a slight mistake in the second post

4 hours, 54 min. Andy Murray - Novak Djokovic 7-6, 7-5, 2-6, 3-6, 6-2 (US Open - 1st RD)

That's an interesting 1st Round.
