Biggest choke ever?

Safin has just choked big style vs monfils, 5-2 up and has had several match points, game points, break points and has screwed the lot basically.

This is as bad as Hidalgo in rome.

Safin is rivaling his doubles partnet for biggest choker.

Re: Biggest choke ever?

Yeah, according to my stats, the worst three-set defeat in Safin's career.

Well if you say it then it's right. Worse than Hidalgo in 2006, which was painful as hell.

Re: Biggest choke ever?

Yes, but he was absolutely wiping the floor with Hidalgo, 6-0 and like 4-1 or 4-2 up. And lost in a breaker...

6-0 6-7(6) 6-7(3)... *4:1 in the 2nd, 5:4* (30-30) in the 3rd set, so Safin was two points away from victory in two sets. Both very painful defeats
