Jo-Wilfried Tsonga Beats John Isner After 36-Game Final Set

John Isner, whose 2010 match against Nicolas Mahut was the longest in history, faced another marathon today at Wimbledon against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga—and came out on the losing end, this time, 6-7, 3-6, 7-6, 6-2, 19-17 as the Frenchman overcame a double fault in the decisive game to beat the American.

Tsonga next faces his fellow countryman Richard Gasquet in the fourth round.
