    The longest fifth set in Wimbledon quarterfinals since John Newcombe beat Roy Emerson 6-1, 5-7, 3-6, 6-2, 11-9 in 1970!
    Points won by each set: | 32-27, 26-28, 18-26, 28-19, 61-58 |
    Points won directly behind the serve:
    27 % Gasquet – 44 of 160
    30 % Wawrinka – 50 of 163

    There was 4-all in the 4th set. In the final set, Gasquet led *5:3 (30/15), then saved a mini-match point at 9-all with a service winner. Just their third pro meeting (never met as juniors), the previous one Wawrinka won in five sets at Roland Garros ’13 – a match that lasted 4 hours 16 minutes: Gasquet, after winning the opening two sets, was two games away from winning the next three! The Frenchman squandered 5 mini-match points in three different games of the sets 4 & 5 then.

    Gasquet’s five set matches with 5-all in the deciding set [3-5]:
    Davis Cup ’06: Tursunov 1-6, 6-3, 7-6(4), 3-6, 5-7
    Davis Cup ’07: Youzhny 2-6, 3-6, 7-6(8), 7-5, 6-8

    Wimbledon ’07 (QF): Roddick 4-6, 4-6, 7-6(2), 7-6(3), 8-6
    Aussie Open ’09 (3R): Gonzalez 6-3, 6-3, 6-7(10), 2-6, 10-12
    French Open ’13 (4R): Wawrinka 7-6(5), 6-4, 4-6, 5-7, 6-8

    US Open ’13 (4R): Raonic 6-7(4), 7-6(4), 2-6, 7-6(9), 7-5
    Wimbledon ’14 (2R): Kyrgios 6-3, 7-6(4), 4-6, 5-7, 8-10
    Wimbledon ’15 (QF): Wawrinka 6-4, 4-6, 3-6, 6-4, 11-9
