More tiebreaks which I`ve just known

Los Angeles 1989 1R M.Chang 6-7(5) 0-6
Manchester 1990 FINAL G.Bloom 7-6(9) 7-6(3)
Stockholm 1990 QF D.Wheaton 7-6(3) 5-7 6-4

And I think it is the longest Pete`s match during his career

4 hours and 45 minutes: Sampras beat Mayotte 7-6(6) 6-7(5) 4-6 7-5 12-10 (Australian Open 1990 first round).

He played a couple of matches above 4 hours: against Korda (4:34), Corretja (4:09), Becker (4:00)...

Yes... 2-6 7-6(7) 6-2
Funny thing, in my notebook I've got written incorrectly 2-6 7-6(3) 6-2, so I had never been suspecting MP's in that match.
