I think Borg and Laver had a really long game (from reading about it) in their match in the 1975 WCT Championship.

It's not something I keep track of but I'll try to think of some.

Edit-I tried to find some newspaper accounts of the Borg/Laver WCT match but the only thing I could find was that it was a 4 hour and 5 minute match. I would guess there were some long games. I thought I read something about them playing a twenty point game or so. Could be wrong.
Yes, Vijay held for 5-2 in the fifth set after 9 deuces.

Re Borg-Laver, that would be interesting if they had a marathon game, or more than one.
