Isner, Mahut playing record-breaking match 

John Isner of Tampa, Fla., and Nicolas Mahut of France are playing what already is the longest match on record in tennis history.

Their first-round match at Wimbledon has lasted more than 9½ hours — breaking the record of 6 hours, 33 minutes set in a 2004 French Open match.

Isner and Mahut have played more than 110 games across more than 6½ hours in the fifth set alone. They resumed playing Wednesday at the start of the fifth set; the match was suspended because of darkness Tuesday night after four sets.
