The match was a a first round Men's Singles match and took 11 hours, 5 minutes of play over three days (due to fading light), with a final score of 6–4, 3–6, 6–7(7–9), 7–6(7–3), 70–68 for a total of 183 games.

The final set took 8 hours, 11 minute. It was longer than the previous longest match which was between Fabrice Santoro and Arnaud Clément at the 2004 French Open, and had lasted 6 hours, 33 minutes.
