Mahut to compete in Newport, R.I.

Associated Press

NEWPORT, R.I. -- A week after playing the longest match in tennis history at Wimbledon, Nicolas Mahut has landed a wild-card spot in a grass court event in Newport, R.I.

The International Tennis Hall of Fame announced Monday that Mahut will play in the Campbell's Hall of Fame Tennis Championships running from July 5-11.

Mahut will also present memorabilia from his record-setting match against John Isner to the Hall of Fame's museum. Hall of Fame spokeswoman Anne Marie McLaughlin said she did know exactly what memorabilia would be presented.

Last week's 183-game match lasted 11 hours and five minutes over three days. Isner won 70-68 in the fifth set.

Mahut has competed four other times at Newport, and was a finalist in 2007.
