Vilas vs Orantes, '75 US Open(on har-tru), up 2 sets to 1, 5-0, love forty, blew those 3 match points, and 2 more for good measure.

In modern times Al-MUG-rat is clearly the winner, vs Ferrer at the AO this year or his hideous melt down at the AO, take your pick.
Good ones. I was about to add the Rubin-Novotna match.
