Default Shortest 5-set match on clay?

Murray vs Eysseric today lasted just 2 hours and 44 minutes!

Was there any 5-set match on clay quicker than this?

3 minutes shorter!

Lapentti vs Tipsarevic had less one set and plus one hour of tennis!

Rusedski Roddick was not a 5 setter, it was 4 sets.

I don't know and it's very tough to find because on atptennis.com, we have match-time only since 1991.

I suppose that since then, the shortest five-setter, played Mantilla and van Garsse. The Spaniard won 6-2 6-2 1-6 4-6 6-2 in the 1st round of Wimbledon 1998 after just 2 hours and 13 minutes Massu and Zabaleta in Kitzbuhel 2004, played a 2-setter which lasted 39 minutes longer

Hmm but how did you find this bit of info? Do you have the entire database from atptennis.com on your comp or something?

We were talking about the shortest 5 setter on all surfaces, nice knee-jerk sarcastic reaction by the way Anyways turns out the Johansson Roddick Match was 2h 53 mins, therefore not the shortest 5 setter.
