2010 was an epic year for Wimbledon, and for tennis. Many, many tennis world records were broken and the jaw-dropping matches and players involved will undoubtedly be remembered forever. The John Isner and Nicolas Mahut match was an epic tennis battle between two men – lasting an exhausting 11 hour and 5 minutes. That should be enough to secure a spot in the record books for a long time.
