Off the top of my head I have.....

Sampras/Corretja (9-7) - 1996 US Open QF 5th set -Pt. 1 -Pt. 2

Becker/Sampras (13-11) - 1996 ATP World Champ F 4th set

Agassi/Sampras (7-5) - 2000 Australian Open SF 4th set

Henin/Capriati (7-4) - 2003 US Open SF 3rd set

Safin/Federer (8-6) -2005 Australian Open SF 4th set

Federer/Nadal [10-8] - 2008 Wimbledon F 4th set
Rosewall-Laver at 1972 WCT and Connors-Borg at 1976 US Open are as good as any other seen.possibly better, quality wise.
