The first round qualifying match between Fuda and Henke went to 11-9 in the third with Fuda winning. I am assuming that was a long one?

What a great thread! I actually watched every horrifying moment of Sandrine/Conchita at Amelia Island. I didn't even get up to get a drink. God, I have to say, I loved it, everyone awful moment of it, I loved. Conchita got down like 0-40 on her serve like all the time, battled back to deuce, multiple deuces, then hold. Sandrine approached the net on simple, simple shots and botched 12 in a row. In a row. She got a standing ovation when on net approach No. 13, she hit a winner. This was no compliment from the crowd. They both were playing horribly. Anyway, Conchita got her revenge, Sandrine was so sore the next way, she could barely move and lost easily, to Anne Kremer I believe. But Conchita got her revenge on me, too. My ass was so sore from sitting on those wooden bleachers for 4 hours, I could barely walk either!

Müller d. Birnerova 7-6(7) 4-6 6-1 Budapest QF 3 hrs 10.
(If we take off the 10-minute-long bathroom break after the first set, and the 10 min. heat break between the last 2 sets that come under 3 hrs. Decide Guys!)

Not an exceptionally long match in terms of games, but I thought I'd post it because of its exceptionally unusual score:

1909 U.S. Women's Indoor Championships
Final
Marie Wagner d. Elisabeth Moore 6-0, 12-14, 6-0 (38 games)

This was a rematch of their 1907 final at this tournament, when Moore defeated Wagner 6–2, 4–6, 6–2. Wagner was the defending champion in 1909. She won a total of 6 singles titles at the U.S. Women's Indoor Championships, more than anyone else.

The 1941 final at this tournament saw Pauline Betz Addie defeat Dorothy Bundy Cheney 6–1, 10–12, 6–2 (37 games).
