    Longest Match Tiebreak at menstennisforums. 23-21 in the first round match of 2007 Estoril Open is mentioned there. The players were Montañés/Ramírez Hidalgo vs. Aspelin/Čermák. This tie-break is also mentioned on this website. – Martin Sep 14 '15 at 9:36

    @Martin it would be good if you answer the question instead of writing it in comments section. – suhas Sep 14 '15 at 10:20
  • @suhas Martin's find only half of the reply: I was asking record for ATP and WTA matches. Maybe this is the way of "replying" in the comments and not as a complete reply – Ale Sep 14 '15 at 10:26

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's a request for a specific statistic. – Joe Sep 14 '15 at 19:29

    At the moment the post has two close votes. Personally, I think that questions like this are OK, (We had in the past many questions asking about records and trivia.) I voted to leave open. (But his would be probably discussion for meta. In fact, there are some related questions on meta like this one and this one and maybe also this one. – Martin Sep 16 '15 at 5:32

  • I have made this post CW. Feel free to add further information. (What is the record for grand slams? Are there some official sources for ATP record? I did not find anything about this record on ATP website.) – Martin Sep 16 '15 at 5:25
