For a while there Sunday, it looked like John Isner might challenge his own record.
Isner, who was part of the longest match in tennis history, found himself in a fifth-set tiebreak against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga on Sunday at Wimbledon.
Unfortunately for Isner, this one didn't end as well. Tsonga broke his serve at 17-all and then sealed the match 6-7 (3), 3-6, 7-6 (5), 6-2, 19-17 in a contest that went more than four hours and took parts of two days to complete.
More from FoxSports
In 2010, Isner won an 11-hour match against Nicolas Mahut with a final set that ended up 70-68. That match took parts of three days to complete and smashed several records.
So when Isner and Tsonga kept trading games in the final set, people took notice.
The easiest bet I have ever had was the over 44.5 games in that Isner vs Tsonga match.— David Kennedy (@bigdjk34) July 3, 2016
Just wonder what Nicolas Mahut was thinking, watching his mate JW Tsonga playing against Isner today...Deja Vu..2010.. #Wimbledon— Jonesy (@Jonesy_OmegaMan) July 3, 2016
John Isner really must love Wimbledon, forever taking the fifth set to ridiculous numbers. Tsonga for Wimbledon champ this year #wimbledon— Claire Beaumont (@claibeau) July 3, 2016
What a comeback by Tsonga. Damn that last set was freaking amazing. Whats w/ Isner and Marathon 5th sets? #Wimbledon— Chanakya Chegowni (@mangoman009) July 3, 2016
