The longest rally I've seen is the 62 shot rally between Gilles Simon and Gael Monfils.

Re: Longest rally ever

That's the longest womens rally I've seen and one of the best

Top 10: Ashleigh Barty, Caroline Garcia, Jamie Hampton, Jelena Jankovic, Agnieszka Radwanska, Lucie Safarova, Maria Sharapova, Karolina Sprem, Sam Stosur, Jarmila Wolfe.

All time favourite: Anna Chakvetadze

Re: Longest rally ever

44 shots rally, forgot which match (Caro vs Sam), I believe matches between the likes of Caro/Aga/Sara will have more hopes of finding longer rallies.

Re: Longest rally ever

This is from an ITF match from Conny Perrin's facebook. Tina Schneitl vs. Ima Bohush I think?

Re: Longest rally ever

I know it's mens tennis but the finals of the mens YEC in 1988 was priceless with such a long rally ending the way it ended after almost 5 hours of tennis in a 5 sets final at the Madison Square Garden

losing 7-5 in the 5th set tiebreak on a let cord winner. Cannot imagine much worse than that in tennis.

I dont believe she had the point won several times. I dont believe she was in the position to win the point until a huge backhand which allowed her the failed overhead attempt.

If anything this proves that her career was always held back by that serve/overhead.

This also shows Jennifers incredible defense and tenacity. You had to beat Jennifer to win... she was never going to hand it to you... that is for certain.

All in all, the match lasted 6 hours and 22mins. And the tiebreak in that match lasted 1hour 47mins

I bet this match was exciting:retard:

UPDATE: It was in the first round of that tourney and the final score was 6:4, 7:6 (13:11).
Omg, just imagine if it would have gone 3 sets
