Re: The Definition of "Choking" in a Tennis match
Berdych didn't choke. Neither did Gasquet. For Berdych, it was a simple case of loss of concentration. For Gasquet, after he lost the 3rd set AND getting the injury, momentum swung against him totally.
Choking is a fairly stereotypical term IMO. IMO, only squandering leads FREQUENTLY, or frequently being broken when serving for sets / matches can be considered choking. Which I don't think many players in the top 50 do.
