I've sought tie-breaks results before 1991...
Is anybody who helps me in this problem?
I've got only seven tournaments with full tie-breaks results from 1990 (Key Biscayne, Umag, Roland Garros, Indianapolis, Paris, Frankfurt & Grand Slam Cup).

==============================================

Here are the matches with the longest singles tie-break:

2006 -- J.Acasuso d. B.Phau 7-5, 7-6[20-18] R1 Toronto
2004 -- R.Federer d. M.Safin 6-3, 7-6[20-18] SF TMC - Houston
1997 -- G.Ivanisevic d. G.Rusedski 4-6, 6-4, 7-6[20-18] SF Queen's
1993 -- G.Ivanisevic d. D.Nestor 6-4, 7-6(5), 7-6[20-18] R1 US Open
1973 -- B.Borg d. P.Lall 6-3, 6-4, 9-8[20-18] R1 Wimbledon

20:18 isn't the longest singles tie-break in mens tennis... I know that were two tie-breaks 21:19 but in qualifying (quali are unofficially):
1998 - S.Huet d. T.Larkham 7-6(21:19), 6-2 R1 US Open-q
2001 - R.Fromberg l. M.Llodra 3-6, 7-6(21:19), 6-8 R1 Wimbledon-q

Is anybody knows match in which was 22:20 (qualifying, Challengers or Futures)?

in the wimbledon final in something around the 70-80s there was a much more longer tiebreak,
mistake, is was 16-18, and yes it is the longest tie break ever the 20-18, it will be very difficult to find out results of tiebreaks of challengers.

Final Wimbledon 1980: Bjorn Borg - John McEnroe 1-6 7-5 6-3 6-7(16:18) 8-6
I guess that was the longest tie-break in mens tennis final. "BigMac" saved 7 match points in this tie-break set.
