Yep, I was really surprised to see Saretta appearing so many times, and mostly on the winning side. Especially considering what a poor fitness he has.

They have won almost six "at least 4 hours" matches in the last six years:
Roland Garros 2003: Saretta def. Kafelnikov 6-4 3-6 6-0 6-7(0) 6-4
(3 hours 55 minutes)
Davis Cup 2002: Cañas def. S.Draper 6-4 6-7(4) 5-7 6-4 6-1
(3 hours 58 minutes)

I think from active players we have three possible combinations of beating Clement/Santoro's record. There are five-setters on clay:
Cañas vs. Saretta
Cañas vs. Massu
Massu vs. Saretta

And score should be something like 5-7 6-4 6-7 7-5 10-8 :devil:
