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

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. :eek::eek::eek:

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