Big news this week was the record setting Wimbledon men’s singles match between John Isner and Nicolas Mahut, which took a record 11 hours 5 minutes to complete. The match is the longest men’s singles tennis match ever. It is more than twice as long as the next longest US Open match. But just how long was this match? I wanted to visualize this feat, so created a histogram of the men’s singles match times from this year’s Wimbledon (it looks clearer if you click on the image). How long do you think it will take to break this record?
