Do you know guys some ATP tournaments which the winner had to save championship point(s)?

I can recall only 2:

-Kuerten def. Coria 6-7, 7-5, 7-6 in the Brazil Open 2002 final, one cp saved in the third set!
-Massu def. Mathieu 1-6, 6-2, 7-6 in Palermo 2003 final, 3 cp saved in the third set!

Post the ones you have!

Rome 1989, Agassi had a championship point but ended up losing to Alberto Mancini, 3-6, 6-4, 6-2, 6-7, 1-6.

Took him 13 years (!) to finally win Rome, beating Tommy Haas in the 2002 final. :)
