Hi JamesBlakeFan,

Great idea, and can you describe the game and how long the rally is?

Here's my contribution - mentioned elsewhere as well - in the Australian Open 2009, first round, Roddick and Rehnquist had a 41 hit rally:

this week Murray vs. Monaco had a 40 something shot rally ending in Murray's signature flat crosscourt backhand winner!! 

It's surprising though that no one has yet been able to beat Federer and Hewitt's 45 shot record.  On the ATP that is, I remember seeing a 49 shot rally between Dementieva and Capriati

Can you upload it? Most appreciated. It would be a great contribution!

My video has big rallies of:
Blake - Nadal TMC 2006 (29 shots)
Nadal - Ferrer TMC 2007 (31 shots, I think)
Simon - Nadal Madrid 2008 (24 shots, I think)

Hingis and Stotsur had a very long rally at the Australian Open once; I have it somewhere on a DVD, but it might be years till I'm able to get that one.

by the way, do you have the original avi file for Blake vs. Nadal Shanghai highlights??  By the time I discovered the link, it had expired :(

I'm not sure I will be able to upload the Murray vs. Monaco rally.  I would have to download the match and I already forgot where it happened and I'd have to find it.

I have uploaded another rallies video at Rapidshare!!! It has a colossal point with Simon and Djokovic at TMC with a good replay (25 shot rally), and the classic Federer and Hewitt rally (45 shots). Here is the link:

Enjoy! (this is another really good one!) :))

Rallies 15+ shots are good. But I only have ones 20 and over. The longer the better! If you can come up with the longest one, then you get first prize! (there isn't a prize, but there is a title)

I had a file with a Djokovic - Gremelmayr 28 shot epic rally but I can't find it, if anyone has it, it was a great rally!

I searched for this topic and received a warning that it hasn't been accessed in 120 days! But still relevant because of what I'm posting now:

In the Paris Masters 2009 Final, Monfils and Djokovic had not one, but TWO long rallies, both in the last set.

Monfils.Djokovic_43_shots
http://rapidshare.com/files/308213134/ATP.Paris.Masters.Final.Monfils.Djokovic_43_shots.wmv

Monfils.Djokovic_34_shots
http://rapidshare.com/files/308213132/ATP.Paris.Masters.Final.Monfils.Djokovic_34_shots.wmv

I liked the 43 better, but the 34 shot rally was in the tiebreak!

Enjoy!

Ah - I haven't seen the match but I stumbled across the 43 shot rally on Youtube yesterday. I haven;t seen the 34 shot one. Thanks for the contribution!

I've pulled this topic back again, as there's a real keeper here: second set tiebreak between Davydenko and Nadal, 36 shots.

For a second, it really looks like I upped the speed to 1.5, but I didn't. It is AMAZING (and of course you'll see it in the complete match that I'll post in a few hours).

A LOT OF PEOPLE MISSED THIS ONE!

I am "cleaning out" my TV's HD and was recording ATP.Cinn.2009.QF.Murray vs Benneteau. There was a 24 stroke rally, then another 23 stroke rally, then this one:

FIFTY SIX (commentators said 54) stroke rally!

So, this is now the longest in this thread!

Enjoy!
