Don't let it end

I remember perusing at work one day a press release that revealed, among other results from an under-14 tennis tournament, that M. Rohit had defeated R. Mohit (or vice-versa). The scoreline I do not remember. The game may have been tight, or one-sided in the extreme.
I imagined at the time that these two boys would grow up forever facing each other in finals of tennis tournaments, and that their lives would culminate in an epic match that would simply refuse to end.
Nicolas Mahut and John Isner may not possess the duality of M. Rohit and R. Mohit, but are  nevertheless tied at 59-all in the fifth set of a first round match on court number 18 at Wimbledon. Play has been suspended for the day. The six-hour final set is already longer than any other match in tennis history.
What happens if this game never ends? Will Wimbledon come to a standstill forever because someone is stuck in eternal wait for a second-round opponent?

I love the idea that the game never ends...

Ya I thought it would be pretty cool, if one of the finalists was decided and there was one semi-finalist from the other section of the draw determined along with one quarter-finalist, with the other places remaining in the balance, or some such nonsense.
