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
of course http://www.atpworldtour.com/posting/2012/3585/mdd.pdfYeah, it's really... wow!
Gicquel is gonna be really angry, also lost in singles yesterday 6:7 (9) in 3rd set :lol:
BUT: Anyone knows if that 27:25 is an official record now or not???
Thanks, but my question was if it is confirmed that 27:25 is an official record. I actually don't believe that there has ever been a higher score on the ATP tour but I don't know it...
You're the 2nd guy now talking about obviously somebody here in the forums called "Voo". Who is that guy? 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 tomorrowVoo will know :rocker2:
According to ATP, it tied the record for longest tie-break. It happened already ten years ago in a match between Gary Lugassy and Igor Zelenay in Sarajevo.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 ?
