Kevin Anderson vs John Isner, Wimbledon 2018 semi-final

That mark was set by another five-setter between Novak Djokovic and Juan Martin del Potro in 2013.

The 32-year-old stunned the tennis world on Wednesday when he beat defending champion Roger Federer in the Wimbledon quarter-finals, while Isner beat Canadian Milos Raonic in his quarter-final match.

Anderson served for the match and it ended with Isner planting a forehand wide before both exhausted players embraced at the net.

With the players tied at 16-16 in the deciding set, they had gone past the 5 hours, 31 minutes that a third-round match between Sam Querrey and Marin Cilic took in 2012. Isner won that best-of-three match 7-6, 6-1.

As Isner and Anderson eclipsed 30 total games in the fifth set, Isner set a new Wimbledon record for most aces in a single tournament.

Roanic, the 13th seed, required strapping to his right thigh in the first set and had treatment later in the match, but Isner deserved this victory.

Isner appeared to be struggling at times from 12-all to 18-all, but he held firm on his serve as Anderson, playing his second-consecutive five-set match, found a second (or third or fourth) wind.

He fashioned three break points from the next rally and took the second, the first break in 49 games. However, Melichar and Peschke won the next two games to seal it. The victor will face either Rafael Nadal or Novak Djokovic for the title on Sunday.
