Longest tiebreaker in WTA history?

What was the longest tiebreaker in WTA history? By longest, I mean the one that had the most points, not actual time ^^

Hantuchova/Sugiyama def. (1) Black/Huber 6-7(0) 6-3 7-6(10) saving SEVEN match points, down 2-5 in the third, and down 2-6 in the third set tiebreak in three hours

Ai Sugiyama. Jie Zheng. Zi Yan. Tamira Paszek.
Yaroslava Shvedova. Nuria&MariaJose. Yung-Jan Chan. Elena Vesnina. Flavia Pennetta.

Wasn't it Myskina def Zvonareva at Dan Diego or something?

It was like an 18-16 TB if I remember...

Why is it that the world never remembered the name of Johann Gambolputty de von Ausfern-

No, that was only the longest in a decisive set but longest set in 2004.

I remember one year Emmanuelle Gagliardi def. Tara Snyder 6-7 (19-21), 6-1, 6-1

I believe it was 1999 at some indoor tournament. It freaked me out when I saw the scoreline to the match!

The singles longest tie breaker was the one that Vsfan mentioned

but it was at Madrid 99's second round.

I think there was a tie break that ended 22-20 in a doubles tournament not many years ago (definately this millenium) but I might be wrong

Lindsay v Kim Po Oz open 4th round. Never say you're going to the loo after a tie break it went 15-13 to Kim and the rallies were so darn long it felt like it went on forever.
Kim went to win the match 7-6 6-4 it was not a good day to say the least.
