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 7½ hours - breaking the record of 6 hours, 33 minutes set in a 2004 French Open match.

Isner and Mahut have played more than 80 games 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.
