Tommy Robredo of Spain is specializing in comebacks: He is the first man in 86 years to win three Grand Slam matches in a row after dropping the first two sets (France’s Henri Cochet pulled that off at Wimbledon in 1927).

Robredo did it in the second round of the French Open Wednesday. He did it in the third round Friday. And then he did it in the fourth round Sunday, defeating No. 11 Nicolas Almagro 6-7 (5), 3-6, 6-4, 6-4, 6-4. Robredo trailed 4-1 in the third set, 4-2 in the fourth and 2-0 in the fifth.

“Nobody dreams of doing such things,” said Robredo, who dropped to his knees, leaned forward and wept after winning. (Photos: Clive Brunskill/Getty Images, Michel Spingler/The Associated Press)
