It just keeps going and going and going and going…
Some of you are all caught up in the World Cup, but you are missing sports HISTORY be made over at Wimbledon!
This morning, American tennis player John Isner and France's Nicolas Mahut took to the court for their first-round contest.
Ten hours later, they were still playing! Impressive!
In the longest recorded match in history, the two players went at it relentlessly, shattering all kinds of records with a fifth-set that has lasted six hours! And there still isn't a winner!
Tied at 59-59 in the final set, the refs finally decided to suspend the game until tomorrow morning! The scoreboard will be re-set at 0-0 first set and Isner and Mahut will duke it out from there!
Imagine if this continues on like this for days!!! Bring it boys!!!
