World Record Holders for Longest Tennis Rally, Ask Them Anything!

You may already know the amazing story of Angelo and Ettore Rossetti who set the record for the world's longest tennis rally:  25,944 strokes!  They did it for charity and to honor the legacy of good friend Tim Gullikson.  The feat took over 14 hours - a continuous rally.  Angelo and Ettore, both members of Tennnisopolis, have agreed to do a Tennisopolis "Ask-Me-Anything" type interview.  Post any questions you have for the duo here in this thread, and we'll pass along the good questions to them.

Here's the story.

Angelo and Ettore,

     How on earth did you manage to eat or not go to the bathroom? This feat sounds harder than a Tour de France stage!

Was it just the two of you or a whole team.

I can't imagin just two guys doing this for 14 hour none stop.

I want video coverage :)

I wanna see

I remember seeing the ending of it on youtube or something and they were just exhausted as you can (or cannot!) imagine! Not only is it a wonderful achievement but it was also for a very good cause!!!

I thought of one when I saw the photo of the Penn balls:  Did Penn sponsor the rally?

Also, was it hard to keep the rally going once the ball was bare?

Did you have to use a special string so they wouldn't break?

 

Keep 'em coming folks.  I'll send the questions to the brothers once we get some more good ones!

 

Seeing the video, I would ask the following. Did it help being twins, in reading each other's intent or knowing each other's inclinations? Also, did it help going at a slower rally speed than the Germans who did their attempt in 5+ hours?
What about bathroom breaks?

In the video, Angelo intentionally grabs the ball to conclude the rally, but it appears to surprise and even disappoint Etorre.   Is that correct?  Describe that emotions for each of you at that moment;  your body having to stop even though your mind did not want to.
