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


The new record of the most games in the 5th set!
Previous record - Wimbledon 1985:
H.Gunthardt / B.Taroczy - P.Annacone / C.Van Rensburg 6-4 2-6 6-4 6-7(4) 24-22

It's also the new record of the most games played - 102!
Don't know about match time: record for doubles in a Grand Slam event is/was 6 hours 9 minutes (Knowles/Nestor def. Aspelin/Perry 5-7 6-3 6-7(5) 6-3 23-21

How many MP's did they save?

Great stuff for the fans, but not the players.

“ On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

So, three new records in one match (Open Era):
- the most games in all (102)
- the most games in 5th set (54)
- the longest doubles match (6:13 h)

One thing is sure - it is one of the most amazing matches in tennis history
