Giustino after a tennis party of more than 6 hours: Well walk in the run

Qualifying player Lorenzo Giustino needed six hours and five minutes at Roland Garros to place himself for the second round at the expense of Corentin Moutet.

The competition started on Sunday and had to be resumed on Monday afternoon. The final score: 0-6 7-6 (9-7) 7-6 (7-3) 2-6 18-16.

โ€œ I cant feel my body anymoreโ€, responded a disappointed Moutet. โ€œIm completely up.โ€ The 29-year-old Giustino turned out to be significantly more fitting: โ€œI feel perfect! Tomorrow Im going for a walk, because I still feel much too fresh.โ€

In the second round awaits Diego Schwartzman, again a strong opponent for Giustino.

Isner versus Mahut

The marathon match between Giustino and Moutet was not the longest match ever in Paris. In 2004, Fabrice Santoro and Arnaud Clement were on the track for half an hour longer in the first round.

For the absolute record, we still have to go to Wimbledon. In 2010, John Isner and Nicolas Mahut looked each other in the eye for eleven hours and five minutes. The American Isner won the now iconic game, after three days of tennis.
