    Points won by each set: | 37-37, 25-32, 28-22, 48-41, 27-11 |

    In the 4th set Monfils squandered two match points at 5:4* (40/15) – backhand error & Fed’s FH winner down the line. Until the 3rd set Monfils enjoyed his longest set-winning streak: 14 (had won 26 in a row as a junior in 2004). Fed leads 8-2 in their H2H.

    “Match point” matches: Federer 13-14 (his first win from MP-down in 5 sets), Monfils 8-7… Five-setters: Federer 23-19, Monfils 12-9

    Federer came back from a two-set deficit for the 9th time in his career, in turn Monfils has lost thrice despite a 2-0 lead in sets. In the Open era more ‘0-2’ comebacks than Federer produced only Boris Becker and Aaron Krickstein – 10. Federer’s nine comebacks:

    US Open 2000: Wessels 4-6, 4-6, 6-3, 7-5, 3-4 ret.
    French Open 2001: Sargsian 4-6, 3-6 6-2, 6-4, 9-7
    Miami 2005: Nadal 2-6, 6-7, 7-6, 6-3, 6-1
    Australian Open 2009: Berdych 4-6, 6-7, 6-4, 6-4, 6-2
    French Open 2009: Haas 6-7, 5-7, 6-4, 6-0, 6-2
    Wimbledon 2010: Falla 5-7, 4-6, 6-4, 7-6, 6-0
    French Open 2012: Del Potro 3-6, 6-7, 6-2, 6-0, 6-3
