:scratch: Do you think about for example:
Player A def. Player B 6-4 6-7 6-1
and Player B saved match point(s) in the second set?

Isn't my question here (http://www.menstennisforums.com/showpost.php?p=5598407&postcount=43) basically the same?
Anyway it should be in that other MP saved thread, as it is very hard to save some match points, still lose and then go on to win a title :D

Thanks, Voo de Mar. Searching for those missing results, I found this great site (http://grandslamtennis.freeukisp.co.uk/index.html), which has the results of almost GS game ever played, starting from 1877! Only some AO scores from pre-1940 are missing. The only minor blemish is that they still don't post any tie-break scores.
Anyway, I've compiled a new GS list, adding some missing entries and fixing a few inaccuracies:

1975 - Manuel Orantes d. Guillermo Vilas 4-6 1-6 6-2 7-5 6-4 - Saved 5 MP's (SF)
1936 - Fred Perry d. Don Budge 2-6 6-2 8-6 1-6 10-8 - Saved 2 MP's (F)
1932 - Ellsworth Vines d. Cliff Sutter 4-6 8-10 12-10 10-8 6-1 - Saved 4 MP's (SF)
1906 - William Clothier d. Fred Alexander 8-6 6-2 4-6 1-6 7-5 - Saved 3 MP's (QF) *

* A-F = All-comers Final. Up until 1921, the defending Wimbledon champion automatically qualified for the next year's final (then known as the challenge round).
A similar system was used in the US Open between 1884 and 1911.

Odds and Ends:

Wilfred Baddeley had to play only two matches in Wimbledon 1895 en route to the title (he had one bye and three walkovers) – I believe it’s some kind of a GS record, excluding title defenders having to play only the “Challenge Round”.
In Wimbledon 1927, Henri Cochet came back from two sets down in each of his last three matches.
Guillermo Coria and Brian Norton are the only two men to have had match points in a Grand Slam final that had never won a Grand Slam title.

Thanks, Voo de Mar. Searching for those missing results, I found this great site (http://grandslamtennis.freeukisp.co.uk/index.html), which has the results of almost GS game ever played, starting from 1877! Only some AO scores from pre-1940 are missing. The only minor blemish is that they still don't post any tie-break scores.
Anyway, I've compiled a new GS list, adding some missing entries and fixing a few inaccuracies:


Really great post, thanks :yeah:

As for the saving MP's and then losing I know Nadal saved a bunch before Youzhny finished him in Dubai this year. It certainly won't be a record but just something from my memory and he saved one with one of the best passing shots I've ever seen.

Anotehr example is the Gasquet FH pass vs Hewitt when Hewitt was basically standing at the net ready to shake hands and a ball whipped past him from 10 foot behind the baseline.
