The record books were torn in half, and then torn in half again yesterday as two little-known tennis players battled it out for a place in the next round of the Wimbledon All England tennis championships.
The match between American John Isner and France's Nicolas Mahut had already been made to run into a second day after they finished at two sets apiece on Tuesday. They resumed yesterday afternoon, but, due to both players' stubborn nature, neither would let the other one win, and the contest has quickly become the most boring Wimbledon match in history.
Locked at an incredible 59-59, the pair exchanged angry words with each other as they made their way off court in the gloom last night, as supporters booed them all the way to the dressing room. One fan shouted:
"We don't pay to see this! What a load of rubbish!"
