Thursday 31st August was an historical day for US Open as Shelby Rogers and Daria Gavrilova played the longest women's match in the tournament history. The American player defeated the Australian 7-6(6), 4-6, 7-6(5) after three hours and 33 minutes, which is 10 minutes more than the previous longest match played between Garbine Muguruza and Johanna Konta in 2015.
The Briton had won that match. 'I knew how hard it was to close that match out. We'd been battling out there,' said Rogers in press conference. 'I knew it was going to be a really tough fight going into it. She's been playing really well, she's super confident, she makes you earn every single point.
I was definitely ready for that. Then I looked at the clock after, yeah. Setting records, there you go.' ALSO READ: Serena Williams gave birth to a baby girl!
