The Australian Open ended with a men’s tennis final for the history books, as Novak Djokovic of Serbia ground out a win against Spaniard Rafael Nadal in an “epic” match that lasted a record six hours, into the early morning hours, Melbourne time. “Numbers, and there were many of them… do not sum up the emotional power of this duel, which deserves a place among the most riveting matches in the modern history of the sport,” says The New York Times’ Christopher Clarey. But it’s hard to grasp the significance of this “match for the ages” without the numbers:

  • 5 hours 53 minutes
    Length of Sunday’s Djokovic-Nadal match, a record when it comes to international tennis finals
  • 1:37 am
    Time at which the match finally ended, in local time
  • 4 hours 54 minutes
    Previous record, a 1988 U.S. Open match between Mats Wilander and Ivan Lendl
