John Isner and Nicolas Mahut won the ESPY Award for Best Record-Breaking Performance for their marathon 70-68, 11-hour, 5-minute match at Wimbledon, beating out fellow category nominees Roger Federer, Usain Bolt, Brett Favre and the Connecticut Women’s Basketball team.

Isner accepted the award from gold medalists Lindsey Vonn and Shaun White on Wednesday evening at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, and immediately paid tribute to the Frenchman.

“First off, I gotta say congrats to my opponent Nicolas,” said Isner. “He was an absolute warrior that day. You can’t fathom a match going 70-68 in the fifth, but somehow we did it. It was a pleasure to share the court with him that day.”

Serena Williams won for Best Female Tennis Player, Kim Clijsters for Best Comeback and Federer for Best Male Tennis Player.
