In 1952 on the pro tour Pancho Gonzalez beat Jack Kramer from two sets down in the final at Wembley, 3-6, 3-6, 6-2, 6-4, 7-5.

This excerpt is from Joe McCauley's History of Professional Tennis:

"Kramer, after squandering a 2 sets lead, led 4-1 then 5-2 in the decider and only conceded his service at 5-5 after 13 deuces. Big Jake was so upset at losing that he was reduced to tears afterwards in the dressing room."
