It's always difficult to compare, but Kas/Peya should be Benneteau/Mahut category. Good luck to the German/Austrian team.

Hi

not really, it's like I said, I completely forgot about that DC tie, unfortunately. I'm not even sure if Portugal end up winning. but somehow I doubt.

sorry If I can't be much of a help.

Re: A.Sa/M.Melo def. P.Hanley/K.Ulyett 5-7 7-6 4-6 7-6 28-26

What I found and nothing is pretty much the same, but anyway.

July/98 - Yugoslávia vs. Portugal - 2/3. QF's, clay, outdoors. and that would be all.

but you know, Melvins has a website about Portuguese tennis. I don't really have the time now cause I'm working and a bit busy, sorry, but in his signature he has a link to it. Maybe he has something more there.

Re: A.Sa/M.Melo def. P.Hanley/K.Ulyett 5-7 7-6 4-6 7-6 28-26

Sa said after the match: “Physically we are not too bad, but mentally it's tough playing one doubles match over five days. Today in the fifth set we were under severe pressure as we were always serving to stay in the match.”

They were serving to stay in the match 22 times (!) in all. Today 13 times.

“With so much pressure in the match it was nice to get it over with finally. From the warm-up we tried to keep the intensity high and keep the intensity going out there.”

During their post-match press conference, Sa and Melo were still unsure whether they had broken any record at The Championships. Upon receiving confirmation that they had, they high-fived each other and Sa said: “28-26. You don’t see that very often. I wouldn’t mind going through that again. As long as we win, it’s OK.”

And he revealed that one of the first people who congratulated them was Andy Roddick, who had just completed his match on Centre Court and raced over to them after seeing their score flash up on the screens in the locker room.

Melo revealed that the match was only the second time in his career that he had played a five-set match and added: "It was a great match, it's fantastic."

Throughout the match the battling Brazilians were supported courtside by their countryman, three-time French Open champion Gustavo Kuerten.

Sa said: “We were lucky to have Gustavo Kuerten here with us. Guga watched the game and gave us some help with the match and also gave us the confidence to believe we can go out there and win. With results like this he might get a full-time coaching job, but we think he will probably be too expensive!”

Melo also won his mixed doubles match with Tamira Paszek, they beat Martin Damm and Michaella Krajicek. Hopefully both Sa/Melo and Melo/Paszek can go far in their tournaments.

I'm wondering what would happen if you had 4 big servers out there playing doubles and they'd got to a 5th set.
