His draws at the time must have caused the comment: No way, José - again!
very interesting, that is quite bizarre

Trust Ilie to do that
He's actually his son! Never got beyond the second round in a slam though, even after that upset.

Doesn't count. Nastase most likely fixed that.

Typical antics all came out in this match: faking injuries, grimacing and cursing, trying to peg Fed, trying to start drama, undeserved final based on an exhausted old man and a joke draw.

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned....

I know it's not quite what you're looking for, but it's very close:

Koubek d. Saulnier 0-6 1-6 7-6(6) 6-4 8-6 Australian Open 2002, first round.
