If Nalbandian had held serve in the semi of 06 AO, how would he have gone against Fed

Nalbandian was on the wrong side of one of the biggest chokes of the last decade when he led 4-2 against Marcos Bagdartis to take a straight sets win and advance to his second grand slam final, against Roger Federer.

Federer didn't play brilliantly in that tournament to be fair, and even in the final he was down 1 set and Marcos had chances to be up 2 sets to 0. I still think Fed would have won from 2 sets down but anyway.

Cliffs;

David would have been fresh and very fit to take on Roger had he won that 3rd set.

David had recently come from 2 sets to 0 down to beat Roger in the final of the 2005 TMC. No doubt Fed was injured in that match, but mentally David would have been at his best.

David has the game to trouble Fed.

I dont personally think David would have won the 2006 AO, but I think he definately blew one of his better chances. Fatigue cost him the 2002 Wimbledon tournament. What do you guys think? Nalbandian is just so frustrating!

"I did not play my best tennis, no? And..that is what enable him to win..to win this match no? "

- Rafael Nadal, ever so "humble", - press conference after shock 4 set loss to Robeen Soderling @ 2009 French Open 4th round.

the loss to roddick at the us open was the worst than this 1. that was his best chance to win a slam as it was ferrero who was awaiting him in the final.

Most relevant thread ever.

Oh please. Clownbandian couldn't even beat Duck at USO. What makes people think he would beat Fed in a slam final in his prime. Joke thread.
