Wibbitz Studio - Friday, 13 July 2018

Kevin Anderson Outlasts John Isner in Record-Breaking Wimbledon Match Kevin Anderson won the second-longest match in Wimbledon history to reach the men's final.

Anderson defeated American John Isner after a semifinal match that lasted six hours and 35 minutes.

The match duration beats the 2012 third-round epic at Wimbledon between Marin Cilic and Sam Querrey.

It falls short of the 11 hours and five minutes it took for Isner to beat Nicolas Mahut at Wimbledon in 2010.

Anderson will now face either Rafael Nadal or Novak Djokovic in Sunday's final.

The 32-year-old is the first South African man to reach the Wimbledon decider since Brian Norton in 1921..
