It took Shelby Rogers 3 hours and 31 minutes to defeat Dasha Gavrilova on Thursday, marking the longest women’s match in the history of the US Open.
The two met for a hug at the net after Rogers took the final set, which alone lasted 90 minutes. The previous-long for a US Open match came in 2015 at 3 hours and 23 minutes in a second-round matchup between Johanna Konta and Garbine Muguruza.
