The Hard Yards

I'm just curious as to what the longest time spent on court is for a player that's made the final of a slam, be it won or lost (over the course of the tournament)

In Lleytons fighting run to the 05 AO final he had spent a total of 20.28 hours at an average just shy of 3 hours per match

R128 Clement, Arnaud 6-3 6-4 6-1 (108)
R64 Blake, James 4-6 7-6(8) 6-0 6-3 (155)
R32 Chela, Juan Ignacio 6-2 4-6 6-1 6-4 (137)
R16 Nadal, Rafael 7-5 3-6 1-6 7-6(3) 6-2 (233)
Q Nalbandian, David 6-3 6-2 1-6 3-6 10-8 (245)
S Roddick, Andy (USA 3-6 7-6(3) 7-6(4) 6-1 (174)
F Safin, Marat (RUS) 6-1 3-6 4-6 4-6 (165)

Surely there are some longer ones (especially in the pre-tiebreak days)?
