No, not yet and Blake is waiting to head that list.

Yeah not a bad record from my man Rocky Llegs...8-in-a-row ,& actually he`s only lost one 5-setter in the last 5-years ..>>That was to Robredo at the 03 FO .So Hewitt has won 14\15 5-setters since the beginning of 2002 .

Re: Best 5 Set Records Active Players Only

Funny that Hewitt lost his last 5 setter when he was leading 2 sets to love.

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".

Re: Best 5 Set Records Active Players Only

It's happened to nearly every top player, yes Safin did it this year. I mean then there is Krickstein who came back from 2 sets down 10 times and won the match.

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".

While we`re on the irony thing..>> wasn`t Krickstein the guy who lost to Connors in the 1991 USO 4th Rd/QF? match after leading 2-sets-to-love

No, it was 2 sets to 1 and he lost in the stupid 5th set tiebreaker.

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

8 times.
The other 2 times the opponent retired.
That can't be counted.

It still counts. So does Lendl's Aus Open not count cause Edberg had a back problem? I believe it does.

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

Retirements can't be counted as comebacks from 0-2 sets down.
Of course also not as 5 set matches. They should be listed separately.

Or one would have to count something like
Russell def. Bruguera 4-6 5-7 6-3 ret at the FO 01 as a comeback.
That wouldn't make sense.
Even if the fifth set has already begun.

Retirements are counted in H2H stats, but not walkovers. In this case it's not a walkover and retirements aren't counted seperately, just the fact that RET alone indicates what happened at the end of the match.

The only reason you are bringing this up cause Becker did the same feat 10x as well and this discussion is going nowhere. It's not Krickstein's fault that Manson and Agassi couldn't continue.

Re: Best 5 Set Records Active Players Only

Seriously back on topic. I have a feeling that Blake will end Berdych's run of 5 set wins and I hope I am wrong.

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".

Davydenko with his comeback is now 7-4 in 5 setters.
