Only for those who remember the great match between Michael Chang and Jimmy Connors at Roland Garros 1991.
It was Chang leading 4-6 7-5 6-2 after 3 sets and Jimmy, who was, I think, 37 years old at that time, was really tired and strted cramping. During the 4th set, he made long breaks between the points to drink litres of water, and he could hardly stand anymore. But, the great fighter he was, he somehow managed to win the 4th set 6-4, but it was obvious that he wouldn't be able to finish the match, as he was near unconsciousness.
So Michael served for the first point in the 5th set and Jimmy hit an amazing backhand-return which cleaned the line for 0-15. And then he retired, LOL. He just wanted to end the match in leading position.
Now the funny thing is, that the ITF-database has listed the match as '6-4 5-7 2-6 6-4 15-0 ret.' :)
I don't think they have listed another match that way. :)
