This Day in History Entry #333

June 24th, 2015 by Wordsman

Now in tennis, you must win by two
But I’m not sure they thought that plan through
It took three days in June
Each one gone well past noon
‘Fore John Isner could fin’lly say “Whew!”

Event: The longest match in the history of professional tennis comes to a merciful conclusion, with John Isner defeating Nicolas Mahut after winning the final set 70-68
Year: 2010
