Re: Longest rally ever

Here is a thread on the match. I was wrong about it being match point. Instead it was on set point for Hepner. Had she won the rally the match would have gone into a third set!

Listen to Nelson talking about the match: http://www.npr.org/player/v2/mediaPl...24&m=113184039

If you calculate at 8 strokes per minute its around 250 strokes for 29 minutes.

i wonder what the conditions were like for that match in 1984. damn. were any people watching?!?!?!
Very few. In fact the rally happened at match point. Had it gone to 3 sets the umpire was prepared to get a replacement.

Both women were notorious for using "moonballs".
