In terms of duration or number of games played?

If you're defining the longest match in terms of the number of games played, the 1985 US Open quarter-final between Steffi Graf and Pam Shriver is an obvious candidate.

1985 US Open Quarter-final
Graf d. Shriver 7-6 (7-4), 6-7 (3-7), 7-6 (7-4)

If you're talking of the longest third set TB than it's:

Myskina def Zvonareva 6-2/6-7/7-6(16/14) San Diego SF 2004

i think u mean the longest 3rd set with TB? i think the 3rd set of Lena vs. Capriati 04 USO SF was almost 90min long, there's probably others but this match comes to mind.

it was 17-15 and that match was a little over 2 and a half hours

vesnina and laine played a 3hr 20min match but it was 6-7,7-6,6-4

In terms of time I'm asking.

I was following the Vesnina match, that's why I asked this.

You have the right answer although I think the actual score was 17-15.
