What is the most winners hit in men's match that didn't go beyond 7-5 or 7-6 in the fifth set?

I seem to remeber Kohlshreiber hitting 104 vs Roddick at AO 2008 (but that was 8-6 in the fifth). And Federer... was it 107 at Wimby 2009 (vs A-Rod once again, lol)? But that was a much longer match, ofc, so it was clearly less impressive (especially since Fed got so many of those off his serve).

115 in 2007 W Final. Don't know if it is the most, but 115 is a lot.
Edit: 121 in 2009 AO Final
Edit #2: 155 in 2009 AO SF

From both men, though, right? The ones I gave above were for *one guy only*.

Yet another ridiculous stat: AO SF, 2007: Gonzalez hit 42 winners (to 3 UE's, lol) in his 6-1, 6-3, 6-1 demolition of Haas.

This article says Taylor Dent hit 120 winners in his 6-4, 5-7, 6-7, 7-5, 7-6 win over Ivan Navarro in the second round of the 2009 U.S. Open.

[Edit: This site has Dent with 121 winners and Navarro with 70 winners, for a total of 191 winners between the two of them]

Here's the fifth set tiebreaker:

Oh, okay. I'm not actually 100 pct sure what the OP was asking for, but I think it was for both players.

I'd only be interested in the winners stat if aces and service winners are not included.
Rafa hit either 24 or 26 winners in the 5th Set of 2013 Roland Garros SF vs. Djokovic.

Does anybody have winners stats for Pim Pim vs Roddick at USO’04, a five-set match completed in under 3 hours of play (rain delay excluded)? I know there were 64 aces but there had to be many more volleys/smashes/returns for winners if they played 5 in under 3 hours.
