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 (4), 4-6, 6-7 (10), 10-8 at the French Open on Saturday.

The match lasted 4 hours, 37 minutes. That's nothing, of course, compared to 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.

Haas was one point away from winning 12 times late in the fourth set Saturday, but couldn't close it out.

He was 2 for 22 on break-point chances until converting his 23rd when Isner put a volley in the net. Haas then served out the victory.
