Interesting tennis tidbits
While Vicky Nelson-Dunbar and Jean Hepner played the longest pro point on record, the overall record belongs to a couple of juniors.
In the 1977 Anaheim Junior Championships, 11 year olds Cari Hagey and Colette Kavanaugh played a point in the first game of the second set which lasted 51˝ minutes. The ball crossed the net 1029 times before Hagey netted an overhead. Hagey did go on to win the match, 2-6, 6-4, 6-2, in 5 hours, 15 minutes.
There have been 2 "Golden Matches" (one player winning every point) in tournament championships. In the 1910 Washington State Championship final, Hazel Wightman did it against a Miss Huiskamp. In the 1943 Tri-State Championship final, Pauline Betz did it to Miss C. Wolf.
