I know he lost to Nalbandian (was it?) last year in 3 sets at Roland Garros and he lost the year before in 3...can't remember who he played. So I think the only 5 setter he has actually played was at Wimbledon last year. (Which he should have won *shakes fist*)
(Sorry if this has been sorted out already
No, sorry if I didn't make myself clear, but what I meant was has Richard even won a match that wasn't best of three? I know that he only played one five setter in his life at Wimbledon against Kenneth Carlsen which he lost last year. And I know that he never played a 5 setter anywhere else, but I was just wondering out of all the best of 5 set matches (including matches that were 3 and 4 sets) has he won any of them?
Your dead on with the guys he has lost to that were best of 5 set matches. I know everyone he has ever played in a main draw Grand Slam also (it hasn't been that many, LOL).
I was just making sure that I was correct when I said Richard had never won a match that wasn't best of three meaning any match where you needed three sets to win. Since he' lost 1st round in every single Grand Slam match he played he musn't of ever won a match where you need three sets to win (not two).
Yeah it sounds so confusing sorry, but that's what I meant.
The exibition sounds great. I can't wait to see photos from it!!
