The Longest Women's Tiebreaker in Grand Slam History
For those who were lucky enough to watch Samantha Stosur and Maria Kirelenko's epic 2nd set tiebreaker in it's entirety, you know what kind of gut-wrenching drama it involved. For those who didn't, here's the last few points, thanks to YouTube user, Slovakia 2010.
At 32 points, Stosur and Kirilenko's work of dramatic genius stands as the longest women's tiebreaker in Grand Slam history, just a tad short of the all-time record for longest women's tiebreaker, which was a 40-point affair that was contested in Madrid by Tara Snyder and Emmanuelle Gagliardi in 1999.
