There's long-and then extraordinarily long. I bet neither lady forgot this match!Remember the Challenge Round singles match at the 1893 Pacific Coast Championships in California, between Bee Hooper and Susie Morgan? Neither do I, but it was a very, very long match:
Bee Hooper d. Susie Morgan (holder) 9-7, 6-4, 3-6, 9-11, 7-5*
* 67 games in all.
