John Isner and Nicolas Mahut made tennis history at the Wimbledon Championships as they set a new record for the longest Grand Slam singles match ever which was postponed at 59 games all in the fifth set.
Shvedova's nice form evaporated and Oudin's problems continue. Henin, Clijsters, Venus and Kirilenko rolled while Dani Threesethova finished off King. Jankovic took her time.
