During the 11th game of the second set of the Toronto final this year.

In a qualifying match in Auckland this year, Osterloh vs. Hollands. Osterloh serving, she saved about 8 break points. Game was 20 mins plus.

I remember a game between Amanda Coetzer and Conchita Martinez that lasted well over 20 minutes.

I remember AO quali match between Bianka Lamade and Elena Bovina . They had a game that lasted either 28 minutes or even over half an hour, I don't know for sure. It took forever though.

If you count an entire tiebreaker as one "game", the tiebreaker which contained the point Eggy refered to lasted 1 hour 47 minutes.

Re: The 21 mins is the longest game in WTA history?

1995 Wimbledon final, Graf - Sanchez-Vicario, final set 5-5, I'm sure it was about 25mins. An amazing match, I remember watching it.

Apparently they were both content to just get the ball back and neither was keen on showing any initiative and finishing the point off. Nelson Dunbar's coach (and brother), Jim Nelson, was quoted as saying that she was like a backboard and that one could never get a ball past her. Yeah, no kidding, Jim! I mean, 643 strokes?? If I'd been the umpire, I'd have had them both kicked off the court.

Best left-right combination by a German (and that includes Max Schmeling): Steffi Graf. All she did in 1987 was knock Navratilova out of #1 and try to knock Evert out of the sport. (Mike Lupica in "The Best and Worst of Tennis in 1987", World Tennis)

"A couple of years ago, we nicknamed Steffi Graf's forehand 'Jaws'. And that music would go perfectly when she starts running in to the net, swarming on that little ball." (JoAnne Russell, during the 1988 Wimbledon final between Graf and Navratilova)
