Third consecutive match between these two players in Melbourne, and the third one concluded after a 5-setter! In the 1st set Wawrinka led 4:3 with a break. He trailed 0:2* (0/15) in the 4th set. Djokovic & Wawrinka had created the sixth Open Era pair of players to contest against each other five-set matches five times, however, it’s the first case that one player had beaten the other one 4 times in this type of matches: (Jimmy Connors vs. John McEnroe 3-2, Stefan Edberg vs. Ivan Lendl 3-2, Rafael Nadal vs. Roger Federer 3-2, Stan Smith vs. Ilie Nastase 3-2 & Andreas Seppi vs. Denis Istomin 3-2)
5-set records after that match: Djokovic 23-8 (74 %), Wawrinka 21-17 (55 %)
