Also another interesting thing is connected with this match... I read once Nystrom won third set of that match after saving 11 setpoints. It can be a record of saving setpoints in a match. 11 match points is a record of Open Era (A.Panatta def. Warwick).
RG 1987 4R: Lendl d. Nystrom 2-6 6-1 5-7 6-0 6-2 in 4h 2m
Serving for the 3rd set at *5-3, Lendl wasted 9 set points with Nystrom breaking on his 7th BP of the game, which lasted 28 minutes (so Berasategui-Filippini only tied the record) and 36 points (15 deuces). In the next game Nystrom saved two more SPs to hold for 5-5. Lendl was then broken again making 4 UEs on his service game. Play was suspended due to darkness after 3h 17m of play with Lendl leading 4-0 in the 4th.
Sources state there was one rally of over 100 strokes (no mention of the exact number ) and another of 94.

Google advanced archive search, but it takes time and patience finding the good free sources.

Re: The Longest Singles Matches, best of five sets (21st century)

I know it's about ATP, but just for fun one news from WTA tour
Longest women's match: In 1984, Vicki Nelson-Dunbar defeated Jean Hepner in a match lasting 6 hours, 31 minutes 6–4, 7–6(11). One point lasted 643 strokes and 29 minutes. The longest rally in tournament play was one of 643 times over the net between Vicky Nelson and Jean Hepner at Richmond, VA in October 1984. The 6 hr 31 min match was won by Nelson 6-4, 7-6. It concluded with a 1 hr 47 min tiebreak, 13-11, for which one point took 29 minutes.
