Do you mean the number of matches he lost after wasting MP and the number of match points in all of those matches?

2MP. Two forehands which were out by a few inches. If one of them had fallen in it would be GSM.

Re: Biggest choke ever?

Not the biggest one, obviously, but Trocki against Zverev in Moscow last year, leads
5-1 in the third, serving for the match
ends up loosing it
4-6 6-3 5-7

Re: Biggest choke ever?

Saulner up 6-0 6-1 4-1 had 15-40 on Koubek's serve and lost in 5 sets.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1
