In fact...
I took this stats from

Gaudio and Zabaleta too. Many Argentinians have mental problems with five-setters. It's better to keep Chela far away form DC-final in Moscow with such a good 5-set player like Safin ;)

He will be part of the team but not play.


I couldn't imagine Ljubicic was so bad 5-set player.

I belive in Nalbandian's mental strengh and nice surprise from "Chucho" :)
Argentina deserves the victory in Davis Cup.

I couldn't imagine Ljubicic was so bad 5-set player.

The worst 5-set defeat was in Australian Open against Ferreira. Ljubicic led 6-4, 6-4, 5-1 and held two match points with serve at 5-3. The one of the worst defeats of the last couple years.

Any chance of updating the list after Wimbledon? :)

Chela (somehow) avoided joining the bottom of the pack. I hope to see Blake grind out a 5-set W soon as well...

Hi! :)
There are updating threads with the best and the worst 5 Set records on General Messages.
BTW, there was my mistake. Chela was 0-7 at the end of 2006, not 0-8.

That's strange, this IS the place for that kind of (up-to-date) data, it's clearly a statistical thing... :confused:

You're right but look at the number of members in particular section: here only 4 viewing, GM (217 Viewing). Statistics section isn't popular - this is probably the reason why those threads about 5 set records existing there not here.
BTW I update up to date all the threads in this section which are in my signature :yeah:

Yeah I've noticed ;)
Actually one of your threads is the reason I found out about this (huge) forum in the first place :yeah:
You don't mind if I'll ask some things regarding those four, do you?
