And her irritation reached a boiling point in the second set tiebreak, when she hurled her racket in frustration.

Kanepi, 37, went on to claim the second set, taking the match into an equally gruelling decider.

Giorgi managed to gather herself, surviving 14 double faults to triumph in the third set breaker, nailing a forehand to claim match point.

The 3hr 32min encounter is the joint-longest match of the year on the WTA Tour.

It ties Brit Harriet Dart’s defeat to Erika Andreeva in Austin last month.
