Re: The most dramatic 5 sets match since 2000!
James Blake d. Paul-Henri Mathieu 2nd round Davis Cup Apr 12, 2008 ˇ James Blake fought off two match-points to beat Paul-Henri Mathieu 7-6, 6-7, 6-3, 3-6, 7-5 and lifted the United States to a 2-0 lead over France.
PHM served 40-15 at 5-4 in the fifth set. He hit a serve way out wide that Blake somehow returned. PHM hit a backhand cross court and Blake ran that down. Blake eventually won the pt and the next match point to regain control.
I was there. It was a very dramatic match.
