Actually it's 1 hour 40 minutes and 35 seconds (made a screenshot).
Is this a new record for the longest (tie-break) set ever. The longest set ever is of course the 5th of the Isner - Mahut match.

It might me a record, I know only 1:30+ tie-break sets. It's ridiculous, I checked the scoreboard and they were stuck in the 5th game after 40 minutes whereas the shortest double bagels last the same amount of time.

Funny comparison of two matches playing at the same time:

Code:
Troicki leads Darcis  *4:1... 19 minutes... 30 points played
Berlocq leads Simon   3:1*... 41 minutes... 50 points played
Now I understand why Berlocq played one of the longest 3-setters last year with Monaco :facepalm:

What a fighter this Berlocq is.

Roland Garros second round: Berlocq outlasts Nadal 2-6 3-6 7-6(5) 7-6(14) 6-2, after 5 hours and 50 minutes. Nadal takes three weeks off to get his breath back, recover and gets rested for Wimbledon, but he's never the same player again.

Yeah, Massu played 1:49 with Sela and 1:48 with Koubek in the longest 4-setters, but both sets occurred at the Davis Cup. There's different pace due to unruly crowd who doesn't allow to keep the required pace + more often discussing with the umpire, both players and captains, there are circumstances which extend Davis Cup rubbers.

They've just suspended some WTA match due to heat so that explains the long break between the sets (perhaps there also was a MTO).
