Tommy Haas outlasts John Isner at French Open

Hampton of US shocks Kvitova

PARIS — After letting 12 match points — 12! — slip away in the fourth set, 35-year-old Tommy Haas came back from a break down in the fifth and beat John Isner, 7-5, 7-6 (7-4), 4-6, 6-7 (10-12), 10-8, at the French Open Saturday.

The match lasted 4 hours, 37 minutes. That’s nothing, of course, compared with the 11-plus hours Isner played across three days during a record-breaking victory that went to 70-68 in the fifth set at Wimbledon in 2010.
