Five 3-setters in a row is apparently a grand-slam record.

Must have been done many times before.

Well, a commentator said it. I don't know if it's true but I think it's
possible. If you're good enough to reach a QF you would normally win early
rounds easily. Even if you struggle, the chances are that at least one would be
in straights, even if they're close sets. Five in a row would be rare.

I doubt that was Dokic. She is a woman, and they don't play five-setters.
But the commentators seemed to imply that Safina had set some sort of
record with consecutive three-setters?
That seems unlikely.
