Patrick Rafter was defending his US Open title in 1998 and in the first round scraped by in five sets (4-6, 4-6, 6-3, 6-3, 6-1) after being down two sets to none to Hicham Arazi!!!! This was such an amazing and fun match to watch. He then pulled off an amazing five set victory over a faking-injury Sampras in the semis ( one of my personal favorite matches). Of course, Rafter went on to win the 1998 US Open.:)

Oh, and how can I forget Hewitt's 2001 US Open victory, which included the third round nightmare 5 setter with James Blake and the tight five setter against Roddick in the quarters?
