What a freaky match. 3 hours 21 minutes :eek:
Saretta was leading 5:0 after 20 minutes in the 1st set :devil:
Clown is beside Canas and Massu the specialist of winning marathons like this.

Saretta is trying to outdo Mathieu. A couple of weeks ago he was leading 4-0 in the third set against Dutra Silva and lost six straight games to lose the match. Now he had 5-0 in the first set and yet managed to be taken to a tie-break.

This is the longest three-setter in the last three years.

Last year three matches lasted 3:18 (Andreev def. Seppi; Ferrer def. O.Rochus; Hernych def. Benneteau).
Longest 3 sets-match 2005: Andreev def. Kiefer (3:14)
Longest 3 sets-match 2004: Massu def. Dell'Acqua (3:23)

I guess this one was only that long because of Andreev's 30 minutes timeouts?

or maybe because Kiefer was busy telling each one of the linesman to feck off at least twice

The longest three-set match tour history ->
Tel Awiw 1993: Andrei Cherkasov def. Andrea Gaudenzi 6-7(6) 7-6(2) 7-5... 3 hours 54 minutes (Cherkasov saved 3 MPs)

Is there anyone who knows the longest four-setter? I guess last year match between Nadal and Mathieu was the longest but I'm not sure :scratch:

the ATP qualifying matches don't count in these stats?

Devilder and Rehnquist played over 4 hours last year in Stockholm

Don't count.
In official stats appearing only matches from the main draw of main tour events. But thanks, it's alwyas nice to see more than 4 hour three-setter :)
I've checked out the score on itftennis.com, Devilder won 7-6(5) 6-7(1) 7-5 - similar score to that from Cherkasov - Gaudenzi match.

Vanek is a big clown, last year had the match against Coria in his pocket and lost. Now against this joker.
