    The only case in the Davis Cup history that in the 5th rubber of the final a player comse back from a 0-2 deficit in sets…
    The match lasted 4 hours 27 minutes, the stats (excluding BPs) without eight games of the 2nd set (83% in total)… Youzhny was two points away from defeat at *4:5 (deuce) in the 4th set. He became the first player in the 102-year Davis Cup history to win a deciding rubber trailing 0-2 in sets!
