Default Re: The Longest Singles Matches, best of five sets (21st century)

5 hours, 5 min. Rafael Nadal - Roger Federer 6-7, 7-6, 6-4, 2-6, 7-6 (Rome - final)
4 hours, 59 min. Andy Roddick - Younes El Aynaoui 4-6, 7-6, 4-6, 6-4, 21-19 (Australian Open - 1/4F)

Those 2 are great matches IMO.

No That match lasted 3 hours 59 minutes, one minute too short to add to the list of longest matches

Do you know that "Cipa" in Polish means "pussy"?
I was actually on the courtside when it was on. Enough said.

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
