And she's also still in in doubles. I hope she'll be in good shape for the coming singles and doubles matches :) .

I thought the Justine-Lindsay match lasted 3h 13 min. So that match was an easy and short one ;)

Just kidding! Well done girls! We need more marathon matches in women's tennis.

Challenger matches are usually way longer than wta matches, i ahve seen a 62 61 win taking around 90mins - simply coz the points are alot longer.

Although atmittedly, i ahve also seen a 75 64 win in under and hour!!

Valentina Sassi and Bahia Mouhtassine played a 3hr 40minute match in the Bronx last year. Sassi had to be treated for extreme cramping (she couldn't walk off the court) and dehydration

Isn't the record in Challenger events over 6 hours in 1983 when Vickie Dunbar beat Jean Hepner in two sets?

From what I remember though, it was no match to write home to mama about.

Amazing.
And the match between Justine and Davenport lasted more than 3 hours? Didn't know it was that long. Did not see it.
