Last week, Gael Monfils and Gilles Simon squared off in the quarterfinals at the German Open. With the match level at deuce in the first game, Monfils sent a serve out wide, beginning a 61-shot exchange that lasted nearly a full minute and a half.

While it's not even close to the longest point in tennis history (Vicki Nelson and Jean Hepner's record-shattering 29-minute, 643-shot rally in 1984), and not the most exciting rally for two players who move around the court so well, it's impressive nonetheless.
