That's interesting that Koubek who hasn't been a master of comebacks and dramatic wins, won the two most amazing matches (the best of three - Calleri, and the best of five - Saulnier) among active players. The only one with similar results -> Nieminen:
- Roland Garros 2003: was losing to Varlet (!) 1-6 1-6 1:4 (mini MP), to win 1-6 1-6 7-6(4) 6-2 6-4
- Basel 2007: was losing to Ginepri 1:5 in the third set, to win 3-6 6-4 7-5
In both matches saved one MP (on return in both cases).
