The French serve-and-volleyer earned his place in tennis history at the 2010 Wimbledon when he squared off against John Isner on Court 18 between June 22-24 to play the longest match in tennis history as Isner prevailed 6-4, 3-6, 6-7(7), 7-6(3) 70-68 in the first round. Mahut's autographed racquet and clothes from that match are on display at the International Tennis Hall of Fame. He wrote a book "The Match of My Life" about the experience. In June, 2013, Mahut won his first career ATP singles title beating Stanislas Wawrinka in the ‘s-Hertogenbosch final. As the world No. 240, Mahut was the lowest-ranked winner on the ATP World Tour since 2008. He followed it up beating Lleyton Hewitt to win Newport as a wild card the next month and return to the Top 100. The 2000 Wimbledon junior champion has enjoyed his best pro results in doubles, including a run to the 2013 French Open doubles final. His wife, Virginie, gave birth to the couple's son, Natanel on August 18, 2011.
