The competitors were Jean Hepner and Vicky Nelson at Richmond, Virginia USA in October 1984. Nelson went on to win the match. (posted by the Commercial Manager, Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum). Ashley Jones, Wimbledon, England 15,674 by Rob Peterson and Ray Miller of USA set Feb 5, 2000 San Diego Ca.....Most serves in tennis history........8,017 (Guinness record) in 10 hours 7 minutes Dec 7, 1998 by Rob Peterson. (please see tennisworldrecords.com for more tennis records) Paul Ryder, Ashton under Lyne, UK A quick search of the web gives the following information:The longest rally in tournament play was one of 643 times over the net between Vicky Nelson and Jean Hepner at Richmond, VA in October 1984.Will Duggan and Ron Kapp (both USA) performed a rally of 6,202 strokes, which took 3 hr 33 min, at Santa Barbara Municipal Stadium, CA on 12 March 1988. (Presumably that wasn"t in a tournament.)There"s also reference to a Rob Peterson (USA) managing 15,674 shots in 9hrs 10mins, but that doesn"t mention the venue, date or other party involved. Dan Smith, UK According to tennislovers.com The longest rally in tournament play was one of 643 times over the net between Vicky Nelson and Jean Hepner at Richmond, VA in October 1984. The 6 hr 22 min match was won by Nelson 6-4, 7-6. It concluded with a 1 hr 47 min tiebreak, 13-11, for which one point took 29 minutes. Bruce Johnston, Monmouth, UK The longest tennis rally in history is a new Guinness world record by Rob Peterson and Ray Miller of the USA. The two rallyed 17,062 non-stop in 9hrs 7 min during a US Tennis association event. Please see www.americantennispro.com. Becky Estoll, Sausalito, USA The longest rally in terms of time is 10 hours and 38 minutes set by identical twin brothers Angelo & Ettore Rossetti on August 18-19, 2007 at the Milford Indoor Tennis Club in Milford, CT. During that time they talled 19,490 strokes. Ettore Rossetti, Shelton, CT USA The longest rally in US recorded (and verifiable with video) is Rob Peterson and Ray Miller of the US of 17,062 non stop shots. These record attempts must be documented by video...all others are not authentic if not verified. john Pierce, Salt Lake City, USA The Rossetti Rally of 19.490 strokes over 10 hours and 38 minutes in Aug of 2007 was video taped in its entirety. It stands as the longest US record on strokes and time and an unofficial world record on time. Angelo A. Rossetti, Hamden, CT, USA The official Guinness World Record for the Longest Tennis Rally was set Aug 9-10, 2008 by identical twin brothers Ettore and Angelo A. Rossetti, which took over 14 hours and 31 minutes to tally 25,944 total strokes. This is certified by video, eye witnesses and a Guinness World Record official adjudicator. Angelo, Hamden, USA According to Guinness World Records (TM), the longest "contrived" tennis rally is 25,944 strokes by identical twin brothers Angelo & Ettore Rossetti set on 9-10 August 2008 at the North Haven Health & Racquet club in North Haven, CT. The rally lasted 14 hours and 31 minutes. Ettore Rossetti, Shelton, CT, USA The longest ever rally recorded in a competition was in 1999 by Andre Agassi and Pete Sampras in the semi final of the US Open. The ball was hit over the net a bet-deciding 51 times before Pete hit the ball out. Francis Booth, Singapore Singapore The longest, as some have pointed out, in professional competition was the 643-stroke rally between Vicki Nelson and Jean Hepner on Sept. 24, 1984, at a Virginia Slims tournament in Richmond,VA,USA. The longest in a major (I believe) is the 86-stroke rally between Bjorn Borg and Guillermo Vilas in the 1978 finals at Roland-Garros.The rallies in the tens of thousands were not in competition. They were merely attempts to set the record. The longest such rally I believe is the 25,944-stroke rally between twin brothers Ettore and Angelo A. Rossetti, August 9th 2008, North Haven,CT,USA. David, Chatsworth, California, US 9,678,890 stroke rally between Mike and Jack. Started in Easter ending at Christmas, lasting over 8 months. This was officially acknowledged by the LTA and the Guiness world records. This was an event of great solitude and devotion by both players. This was the first point of the game which then meant the game ended 3 years later. Mike & Jack, cornwall UK My understanding is that Peterson and Millers record stands as the longest rally in history 17,062 since it was verified PLUS it wasnt a rally from the service line (like others) but from the baseline! Anyone can rally from the service line for ever! Tomas Rios, Sydney, Australia 99,989,564 rally between Balayya and his brother Simha at Hyderabad on 9 August 2004. Pinky, Delhi, India Add your answer
