Anna Kournikova and Martina Hingis on Wimbledon

Martina Hingis and Anna Kournikova are reunited back to play for an invitational doubles at the Wimbledon 2010. I think they also joined the actual doubles tournament. I hope they make it far or win it. Its good to see this two be back on court and for some tennis action. I hope we get to see them on some more exhibition play or some sort, and also on "World team tennis"..They're looking pretty good and still very much in Great shape.
They were once known as the "Spice Girls of Tennis"...LoL

The Longest Tennis Match in the history

the Longest tennis match in the history happened in 2010 Wimbledon. John Isner of United States won the battle against Nicholas Mahut of France on the first round of Wimbledon. It took about 11 hours and 5 minutes over the course of three days (June 22-24). It lasted so long due to being suspended because of Darkness in two nights. We all know that tennis don't deal with time limits. The score of the tennis marathon was6-4, 3-6, 6-7 (7), 7-6 (3), "70-68" in the final set. We got a new world don't even remember what was the record before that, I think it was Mcenroe versus someone.
I play a lot of Tennis, and to hear something like this is insane..hehe.
John Isner did not pass the second round and was actually taken out quickly (6-0 6-3 6-2) by Thiemmo de Bakker. I guess its understandable how much the match took out of him. At least his not leaving Wimbledon empty handed, he's name is in the history as the winner of the longest tennis match.
here's a video of John isner guesting on David Letterman
