Long final sets?

What are some long final sets on the women's tour?

Re: Long final sets?

I like McEnroe's idea. After 12 all in the final set, go to a tiebreak.

For Dante, it follows then, that the only way to get into Hell is to insist upon it. One must deliberately exclude himself from grace by hardening his heart against it. Hell is what the damned have actively and insistently wished for.

The man that hath no music in himself, nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds is fit for treasons, stratagems and spoils. The motions of his spirit are dull as night and his affections dark as Erebus. Let no such man be trusted. Shakespeare

Re: Long final sets?

Also:

The longest women's match (by time) took place at a tournament in Richmond, Virginia, in 1984, when Vicki Nelson took 6 hours, 31 minutes to defeat Jean Hepner 6–4, 7–6(11). The match featured a 29-minute, 643-shot rally, the longest in professional tennis history.[6] This match is also the longest professional match completed in a single day.

A 643 shot rally??? I can't even begin to imagine. I wonder if there's a vid.
