2. What was the score of the longest match?
3. The final set of the longest match was special for what reason? - something to do with its duration
4. What is the shortest tennis match ever played? The duration and who were the players?


1. 11 hours & 5 minutes
2. 6-4, 3-6, 6-7(7), 7-6(3), 70-68
3. It lasted longer than the previous longest ever entire game.
4. Susan M.Tutt won 6-0, 6-0 in 20 minutes against Marion Bandy in 1969 @ Wimbledon


edited to add that I'm playing for SA ;) for your info :D



Just adding to Tania's answer for the third part in case you wanted more info, it was the longest set in history both in duration and number of games played, and set the record for both most games played in a single day (118) and longest gameplay on a single day being 7 hours and 6 minutes.

Thank you Brad. 8-)

Ok, my answer is:

Billy Madison (1995)

Happy Gilmore (1996)

The Wedding Singer (1998)

^Seen the first two and he definitely wasn't in them. Checked online and he had no brief or cut cameos either. And that's because the above three were all pre-Schneider and his all too frequent cameo stints in Sandler movies.

Punch-Drunk Love (2002) - Rare exception it seems.

Funny People (2009) - I've seen the movie and Schneider is nowhere to be seen and again, checked online and no cut cameos either. The recent two movies and their Schneider-less-ness may be partially explained due to the fact that both those movies are more serious, more drama orientated efforts, starring Sandler, rather than the more foolhardy, out there, silliness etc... we normally see from Sandler movies, I guess?
