They were two of the biggest tennis stars of their day: Aaron Williams, a hyper-malcontent American bad boy, and Charles Poole, a dim-witted prodigy who carried England’s hopes for a championship on his shoulders. In 2001, these sworn archrivals met for the longest and greatest tennis match of all time: a seven-day, five-set marathon that took literally everything out of them.
