David Watkins wants to be a world record holder.
To achieve that goal, Watkins, who received a journalism degree from the MU, is playing tennis for more than 36 hours.
"This will be my last post before I become a world record holder," Watkins posted to Facebook on Sunday night.
A reporter at KARE, a Minneapolis television station, Watkins has teamed up the station's sports anchor for a segment called "Record Wreckers."
They kicked off the series Monday with an attempt to break the world record for the longest, continuous tennis match. The record is currently 36 hours, 36 minutes and 36 seconds.
The match is being broadcast live.
