A new record of 70-point tiebreak at a Futures event appears to have been set during a match between Monaco's world No. 636 Benjamin Balleret and Guillaume Couillard in Florida.

Balleret won the decider 36-34 against compatriot Couillard, and the International Tennis Federation (ITF) said on Wednesday that they haven't been able to find a tiebreak that went longer, the Daily Express reports.

The previous longest was 38 points, however the lack of a chair umpire has cast doubt over new record's status. (ANI)
