Shortest 5-set match on clay?

Murray vs Eysseric today lasted just 2 hours and 44 minutes!

Was there any 5-set match on clay quicker than this?

Re: Shortest 5-set match on clay?

For example final in Kitzbuhel 1998: A.Costa def. A.Gaudenzi 6-2 1-6 6-2 3-6 6-1 after 2 hours 41 minutes.

3 minutes shorter!

Lapentti vs Tipsarevic had less one set and plus one hour of tennis!

Rusedski Roddick was not a 5 setter, it was 4 sets.

I don't know and it's very tough to find because on atptennis.com, we have match-time only since 1991.

I suppose that since then, the shortest five-setter, played Mantilla and van Garsse. The Spaniard won 6-2 6-2 1-6 4-6 6-2 in the 1st round of Wimbledon 1998 after just 2 hours and 13 minutes Massu and Zabaleta in Kitzbuhel 2004, played a 2-setter which lasted 39 minutes longer

We were talking about the shortest 5 setter on all surfaces, nice knee-jerk sarcastic reaction by the way Anyways turns out the Johansson Roddick Match was 2h 53 mins, therefore not the shortest 5 setter.
