Five years later it’s still the longest two-set defeat in Murray’s career. The last three games of the match lasted 30 minutes! Long breaks between the points contributed to the duration (30 seconds average both). My description of the final here.

2 Marcos Baghdatis 6-4, 6-4
3 Viktor Troicki 6-3, 6-4

Q David Ferrer 6-2, 7-6(1)
S Juan Monaco 6-0, 7-6(5)
W Andy Murray 6-1, 7-6(4)
