1969 - 1st round - Stanley Matthews vs Ilie Nastase (6-3, 0-6, 0-6, 6-4, 8-6)Nastase is one of only two players to have lost a Grand Slam match in the Open era after winning two sets 6-0.
1974 - Final - Bjorn Borg vs Manuel Orantes (2-6, 6-7, 6-0, 6-1, 6-1)Orantes won the first two sets. But Borg conceded only two games over the last three sets. The Swede became the first player to rally from two sets down to win a Grand Slam Open Era final.
1984 - Final - Ivan Lendl vs John McEnroe (3-6, 2-6, 6-4, 7-5, 7-5)The trophy was practically in McEnroe’s grasp when he led two sets to love. But the American collapsed and never won Roland-Garros.
"It’s the worst memory of my life", McEnroe wrote in his autobiography.
