    Points by each set: | 21-30, 53-49, 111-99 |
    In the 2nd set Del Potro had a mini-match point at 4-all, in the 3rd set he was two points away from victory on two occasions: 12:11* (30/0) & 15:14* (30/15). Federer took toilet break trailing *12:13… 363 points played in this match, the same number of points played McEnroe & Ivanisevic in their Basel ’90 five-set final which lasted 4 minutes longer :)

    Five longest ‘best of three’ matches in the Open era:
    4 hours 26 minutes: Federer d. Del Potro 3-6, 7-6, 19-17… Olympics ’12
    4 hours 20 minutes: Odizor d. Forget 7-6, 4-6, 22-20… Queens Club ’87
    4 hours 3 minutes: Nadal d. Djokovic 3-6, 7-6, 7-6Madrid ’09
    4 hours 1 minute: Teltscher d. Sorensen 14-16, 10-8, 8-6… Davis Cup ’83
    3 hours 56 minutes: Tsonga d. Raonic 6-3, 3-6, 25-23… Olympics ’12
