Longest tie breaker
In January 2013 at the $10,000 Men's Futures tournament qualifications at Plantation, Florida Benjamin Balleret defeated Guillaume Couillard in a 70 point tie-breaker 7–6(34), 6–1. The match was played without any chair umpire or any lines people, so no official record of this tie breaker exists. Both players were part of the Monaco Davis cup team. 
John McEnroe and Björn Borg played a tiebreaker in the finals of Wimbledon in 1980. The tiebreaker lasted over 20 minutes and McEnroe won with 18–16. Borg eventually won the match 1–6, 7–5, 6–3, 6–7(16), 8–6.
