Craziest Tennis Match Ever Going On

Do you see what's going on at Wimbledon right now? When a match goes into the fifth set, it must be won by two games (i.e. 6-4, 7-5, 9-7). And until it is done, they keep playing. In the fifth set, the game score is 35-34! I've never seen or heard anything remotely close to that. No one can pull ahead by two games. I don't know who these guys are, but one of them is an American. And we're on a roll today. Follow it here. Edit: At 1:57 pm it is tied 50-50. Unbelievable. Edit: At 3:10 (our time) the match was suspended due to darkness. It's 59-59.

I think the old Wimbledon record was a fifth set that went 20-something to 20-something. They may have already DOUBLED the old record!! At 43 to 43 they had played over 8 hours! The only salvation--they had played some sets the evening before and play ceased due to the time of day. Therefore, they haven't played CONTINUOUSLY for the over 8 hours. In any event--very exhausting.

They don't have lights?

Amazing. The equivalent in the NFL would be if a playoff game went into sudden death and after the 16th quarter neither team had scored.
