Unbelievable :lol: Two average, low-ranked players were making a 286 minutes history. Dlouhy won with, hmm 11th matchpoint?

Poor Gaba, I imagine his reactions in locker room...

Gabashvili is someone who injures himself after such a match.

Congrats to the :retard: Dlouhy.

Let me give you a brief summary.....

Dlouhy leads 6-3 6-1 5-3. Set 3 ends up going to a tie break. Dlouhy leads 3-1 but goes on to lose it. Onto set 4.

Gabashvili goes a break up, but Dlouhy breaks back, then has 3 match points on Gabashvili's serve at 5-6 but blows them, and loses the tie break once more. Onto set 5.

Dlouhy storms into a *4-1 lead, double break. He gifts one break back, but leads 5-3. He blows 3 match points on his serve, and is broken, and the match is level at 5-5. He broke 4 more times in the 5th set, but every time he served it out he got broken, had another 4 match points on his own serve but couldn't close it out. 10 match points in total, and Gabashvili levelled. At 14-14, Dlouhy breaks and finally serves it out, winning on his 11th/12th match point :lol:

Doesn't 'dlouhy' mean 'long'? If so, it's an ominous name this AO first round...

and who does the record belong to?

Open Era: Adriano Panatta saved 11 match points in the 1st round Rome 1976 against Kim Warwick and won that match 3-6 6-4 7-6.
Grand Slam record: Spadea three years ago defeated Serra after saving 9 match points.
