    Anyone know what the longest single game was, point wise and length wise? I remember Gonzalez and Safin having a rather long one at Wimbledon, I believe.

    I remember Agassi and Costa having a 20-30 minute game on Costa serve. Not sure what tournament but Im pretty sure it was US hardcourt and a semifinal.

    From Tennis Magazine:

    Anthony Fawcett & Keith Glass played a game that extended for 37 deuces, or 80 points, in the 1975 Surrey Grasscourt Championships. The game lasted 31 minutes.

    also:

    Vicki Nelson defeated Jean Hepner 64,76 in a 1st round match in Richmond, VA 1984 that lasted 6 hours and 31 minutes.

    I imagine there were several games in this match that lasted longer than 30 minutes.

    and after the match scientists were called in to examine why "moon dust" was all over the balls.
