Anyone knows what was the longest match tiebreak in men's tennis? Because yesterday a challenger doubles match in Marrakech ended 27:25 in 3rd set...

that's gotta be it, wow, that's a load of mp saved.

It's easier for 5th sets to go long when there's no tiebreak because you need a break which isn't guarenteed, but in a super tiebreak, just 1 point on the others teams serve can win you the match so I doubt one went longer than this.

Even in a real tiebreak I think the record is like 20-18, which is 13 points more than the 7 required to win, while this is 17 points more than the 10 required to win, so this is more unlikely than the longest real TB

You're the 2nd guy now talking about obviously somebody here in the forums called "Voo". Who is that guy? :D Voo, if you read this, your comment on that whole record thing would be very appreciated. I actually wanted to write an article about that... better today rather than tomorrow :)

Challenger records are unofficial, the longest super tie-break is 23-21, won by Montanes and Ramirez-Hidalgo (Estoril 2007).

The longest registered super tie-break, I think comes from junior tournament, Roehampton 2007. Cunha (BRA) d. Ignatik (BLR) 4-2 1-4 [31-29]

Today Guillermo Olaso won the first set 7-6 (22-20) against Evgeny Karlovskyi in Dallas FQR and wikipedia says this is the longest tiebreak ever played on a challenger circuit. Anyone can confirm ?
