Time Suck

This 61-shot rally at Wimbledon was wonderfully ridiculous

July 16, 2017

To understand how long this 61-shot rally at Wimbledon was between Mansour Bahrami, Michael Llodra, Lleyton Hewitt and Mark Philippoussis, put it this way: you could have left your seat at the serve to go to the loo, mad a quick stop at the concession stand for strawberries and cream, and still would have made it back for the finish.

But you would have missed a lot along the way. According to our rough calculations, the point, in the Invitation Doubles Round Round Robin, featured six lobs, three between-the-legs shots, and too "whoas" from the crowd to count.

Check it out:

Hewitt and Philippoussis ended up winning the match Bahrami, Llodra 6-4, 4-6, 10-7.
