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 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.

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.
