In the 1991 French Open match between Connors and Chang, Connors won the first point of the fifth set with a return of serve and then retired. Not sure if it officially counts as a 5-setter or not, but I have included it. If it doesn't count then Connors' record in matches that have gone to 5 sets is 26-16 (a 61.90 winning percentage).
