LONDON (AP) John Isner could hardly believe it, either.
What shaped up as another possible lengthy five-setter at Wimbledon for the winner of the longest match in tennis history - Isner and U.S. Open champion Marin Cilic resumed their suspended third-round match at 10-all in the final set Saturday - instead wrapped up rather quickly.
Isner, a big-serving American seeded 17th, double-faulted on two of the last three points, after having double-faulted once in the entire match, and lost to No. 9 Cilic 7-6 (4), 6-7 (6), 6-4, 6-7 (4), 12-10. They only played for two games and 15 minutes on Saturday, after going 4 hours, 16 minutes on Friday, when play was halted because of darkness.
