USO time limit for a match?
Is there any time limit for a match if the players are still playing after 6 hours (too many sets, tie breaks, etc.)?

No, why would there be?

I heard it was 12 hours, 19 minutes.

If the match goes past 7 hours, the first player down on one knee wins it. Fortunately this rule hasn't been utilized yet.

No time limit yet for matches at the USO. But at Wimbledon any match lasting more than a fortnight is decided by the whim of the Dutchess of Kent. If she is unavailable to make the call the Earl of Glocester determines it. The USO is considering allowing John Wooden to pick a winner of any match which goes more than 5 sets.
