Re: Long Matches

I have to mention the following because they must be among the most number of games in consecutive mixed doubles matches.

1966 U. S. National Indoor Championships, Longwood Covered Courts, Chestnut Hills, Massachusetts:

SF [2] Billie Jean King / Paul Sullivan d. Justina Bricka Horwitz / Robin Rowbotham 11-13, 7-5, 8-6 (50 games)
FN [2] Billie Jean King / Paul Sullivan d. [1] Mary Ann Eisel / Chauncy Steele III 11-13, 9-7, 9-7 (56 games)

That is a total of 106 games. Those 2 matches were played on consecutive days.

More amazing facts from this tournament:

(1) King played all 3 semifinals on the same day, back-to-back-to-back: women's doubles (almost 2 hours), singles, then mixed doubles. The total time on court was more than 5 hours, and she played a total of 98 games. The first match started at 2:00 pm, and the last match ended at 11:50 pm.

(2) The next day, King played all 3 finals back-to-back-to-back: singles (44 minutes), then mixed doubles (more than 3 hours), then women's doubles. The total time on court was more than 5 hours, and she played a total of 97 games.

(3) That is 195 games played over 2 consecutive days.

A few weeks later on the last day of the South African Championships, King played a total of 91 games (17 in the singles final, 20 in the women's doubles final, 32 in a mixed doubles semifinal, and 22 in the mixed doubles final). 59 of those games were in matches with Margaret Smith. King won the singles title but Smith snagged the others.
