41 shot rally: New record?

AlexD and Wozniacki just played this amazing rally which ended up with Alex having to sit down on court as caro went ofr a drink! Incredible stuff!
Anyone know what the longest rally ever is?

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

I think one lasted for like 20 minutes before.

It was a great rally. I remember Capriati/Dementieva had a really long rally at the USO semis in '04.

ETA: 49 strokes

Surprisingly little moonballing in this rally.

Re: 41 shot rally: New record?

They were NOT moonballing. OMG it was the greatest rally ever, ending with a forehand volley when Wozniacki tracked down her dropshot.

Good Luck Radwanska Sisters!

Re: 41 shot rally: New record?

It was a hugely entertaining rally with aggressive determined hitting from both girls, but record setting? Not even close.

Awesome! Not even close to being the longest but it's great to see clay court tennis on a clay court.
