The announcement of the curtailment of play was greeted with understandable disappointment by the crowd, the vast majority of whom had stayed as a contest more than worthy of a Wimbledon final played out in front of them. The contest surpassed the previous record of 4 hours and 44 minutes set by Novak Djokovic and Juan Martin del Potro in 2013. South African-born Kevin Curren contested the 1985 final but he had become a US citizen by then.
It is also the third shortest longest in tennis historty, falling just short of 2015 Davis Cup first-round match between Argentina's Leonardo Mayer and Brazil's Joao Souza, which went on for six hours and 43 minutes.
"Just playing like that in those conditions was tough on both of us".
"It feels like it´s a draw but somebody has to win".
"John is a great guy and I really feel for him". My left heel is killing and I have an bad blister on my right foot. So many mixed emotions.
His heroics against Isner followed just two days after he'd been through another five-set ordeal, this one lasting more than four hours, when he came back from two sets down and a match point to beat Grand Slam superstar Roger Federer.
The almost endless semifinal saga had many arguing for a deciding set tiebreak, from ESPN commentator John McEnroe to Anderson himself. "I can't say it enough, the rule needs to change". "My left heel is killing me".
"Hats off to Kevin. It's very tough, playing six and a half hours", he said. It was a good win for him.

Trump tweets confidence that Kim Jong Un will denuclearize, honor 'our handshake'
The lawmaker's comments come one-day after North Korea criticized the USA for their push for denuclearization. When a reporter asked about North Korea's Saturday comments, Pompeo didn't seem too bothered.
The American's response was immediate, breaking straight back in the next game as Anderson served for a two sets to love lead at 5-3. "I didn't have many chances".
Anderson had already won the first point of the game but was blown back while returning yet another of Isner's monstrous serves.
Anderson again broke the hard-serving American in the fourth set on his way to forcing a deciding set.
The fifth set between Isner and Anderson went for 2 hours, 55 minutes. Given the drama of Anderson's prolonged tie-break-fest against John Isner, that is no certainty.
The 6-foot-8 Anderson and 6-foot-10 Isner go way back, to their college days, Isner at Georgia, Anderson at IL.
The pair will face off for a record 52nd time in their careers in the other men's semifinal on Friday evening.
However, soon after Djokovic had gone on social media to show he had been reduced to playing a game of marbles on the locker room floor - a message punctuated with three laughing emojis - Anderson delivered the knockout blow to reach the Wimbledon final at the 10th time of asking.
However, Djokovic-Nadal was the headline act of the day - they have five Wimbledon titles between them and met in the 2011 final - while Anderson and Isner had never made the semi-finals before.
