USTA singles tournament 4.0 level.

3:45 minutes 3 set match I lost 6-4,5-7,6-7

There were quite a few deuce points played and this was in Texas in July with on court temps over 100 degrees.

I ended up cramping so badly towards the end of the third set my opponent gave me 5 minutes to recover (as best I could) before the tiebreak as he did not want to win the match in a default.

I completed the match but I would like to think that cramping out is what caused me to loose that match. I ended up have several more matches with the same guy that year and all of them were brutal 3 set matches. We ended up becoming somewhat tennis "friends" after playing each other in tournaments so much. For a while we thought the draws were rigged!
