    Lapentti's 5 set record at 30-16 was pretty amazing. Only 5 players in the open era won more 5 setters, Nastase, Lendl, Sampras, Becker and Hewitt, and of all those are guys were of course way more talented than him, winning multiple grand slam titles and holding the world no.1 ranking. So that just goes to show what an incredible fighter he was.

    Plus he holds the record for the most victories in 5 set matches in the Davis Cup, with 13 wins in 5 setters in the competition.
