at Wimbledon 3rd round qualifying in 2001. This match has always amazed me.
I could see it in 1st round, but after Ortegren had already won 2 matches? Unbelievable. It's one of 3 "tricycles" that i know of - the others were Lendl-Skoff at USO and Bruguera-Champion at RG.

Skoff and Lendl never played at the US Open.

The below should confirm that.

Lendl did however beat Barry Moir of South Africa 0, 0 and 0 in the opening round in New York in 1987.

my apologies to Skoff, i don't know why i got him confused with Barry Moir.

but how do you lose a best of 3 sets match in 50 minutes? That's 3 consecutive 15 minute sets with the 2 minute breaks in between. Has anyone ever seen Ortegren play?

the ones at Wimbledon amaze me. A male ATP player failing to hold serve on grass 9 consecutive times?

Volandri could do it. Or maybe if Ricardo Mello had a tougher draw in 2005.
