    The second of [81] Escude’s three 0-2 comebacks at Australian Open ’98 (the first Open Era man to achieve this feat), and what’s more intriguing, in each of those matches, the Frenchman was close to lose in different sets (5th, 4th and 3rd respectively). Against Reneberg [70], he saved a mini-match point at 3:4 in the 4th set, a deciding break in the 5th set he obtained at 3-all.

    # Comparison of Escude’s three five-setters at Aus Open ’98:
    1R: Larsson 5-7, 4-6, 7-5, 6-1, 10-8… 1 m.p… 3 hours 23 minutes
    3R: Reneberg 1-6, 6-7(0), 6-2, 7-5, 6-4… 4 pts away… 3 hours 6 minutes
    QF: Kiefer 4-6, 3-6, 6-4, 6-1, 6-2… 5 pts away… 2 hours 23 minutes
