The Longest Wimbledon Matches Ever

Wimbledon is the oldest tennis tournament in the world and is considered to be the most prestigious across the world. It is held at the All England Club in Wimbledon, London for 141 years now.

Such tournament carries heartbreaks, legends, world records and insane feats. We will be taking a look at the three longest Wimbledon matches ever. The longest match ever, a record that will probably be around forever, belongs to John Isner and Nicolas Mahut. To date, this is the longest professional tennis match ever played at any level. It lasted for 183 games, that is, 11 hours and 5 minutes.

The second longest match belongs to Marin Cilic and Sam Querrey, lasting 5 hours and 30 minutes. Approximately half of the longest match, but a massive battle nonetheless.

The third longest match is in the Men’s Doubles category, belonging to John McEnroe and Michael Stich versus Jim Grabb and Richey Reneberg. This match took place in 1992, with a total number of 83 games, lasting 5 hours and 1 minute.

Tennis can be a grueling sport that demands the best from players, as demonstrated by the longest Wimbledon matches.
