- ... that Greek tennis champion Augustos Zerlendis still holds the record from 1920 for the longest Olympic tennis match played?
5x expanded by Lajbi (talk). Self nominated at 11:44, 2 August 2013 (UTC).
- Nice job on the expansion. Date of work checks out and so does the hook. May we please have a page number or other assistance in finding the record (we have French and Greek sources)? Also confusing to me is the fact that apparently another match went longer, but not in the Olympics. Thank you. -SusanLesch (talk) 15:17, 3 August 2013 (UTC)
- Thank you. There's the page indication for the Journal du Tennis at the bottom of the article, which is p.13. You can find it under the paragraph "Le match Le pLuS Long". There are some English language sources out there but I didn't add them as they don't give the final score but the French and Spanish ones do. And yes the absolute record holder is the Isner–Mahut match at the 2010 Wimbledon Championships, that's why this one is 'only' an Olympic record. Lajbi Holla @ me • CP 19:30, 3 August 2013 (UTC)
- Ready to go! (Sorry, my fault, the page number was already there, just no "p." in that template.)
