To put that into perspective, only one men’s Grand Slam final in the Open era (that’s 193 matches) has been longer than 71 games. That came when Roger Federer defeated Andy Roddick in the 2009 Wimbledon final 5–7, 7–6 (6), 7–6 (5), 3–6, 16–14 in 77 games.

The longest recorded point in tennis history took 29 minutes and featured the ball crossing the net 643 times in a 1984 women’s match. Young Aussie player Bernard Tomic (nicknamed “Tomic the Tank Engine”) lost a match in 2014 in 28 minutes.

Tiger Woods once made 142 straight cuts, topping Jack Nicklaus’ record by 37 and routinely leading the next-best active player by 100 or more tournaments. (This is one of Tiger’s most underrated stats.)

The phrase about winning something “hands down” originally referred to a jockey who won a race without whipping his horse or pulling back the reins.

Chris Evert won 125-straight matches on clay, from Aug. 12, 1973 to May 12, 1979. Amazingly though, that run included just two French Open titles.

Horse racing’s Triple Crown has been achieved just three times since 1949, all within a six year span in the mid-1970s. (Secretariat, 1973; Seattle Slew, 1977; Affirmed, 1978). That’s three in six years and zero in the other 60.
