After three days, the longest tennis match in Wimbledon history, has come to an end. John Isner and Nicolas Mahut battled for three grueling days, but in the end, Isner came out on top, defeating Mahut 70-68.
The match picked up this morning with the score tied at 59. Isner and Mahut played in front of a packed house, and each continued to launch dangerous serves. Isner finished with 112 aces, and Mahut finished with 103 aces.
“When you play a match like this, in an atmosphere like this, you don’t feel tired out here, really, even though that’s exactly what we both were. This crowd was fantastic,” Isner said after the match.
“The guy is an absolute warrior. … To be able to share this day with him was an absolute honor,” Mahut said.
