the 2008 Wim final he was flat outplayed and just made it closer by the score than it seemed, even having BP at 4-3 in the fifth set
We never know if he would've beaten Hewitt in the 2005 AO final either...

There are slams that Fed didn't win?

Definitely the AO 2009.. He was dominating Nadal for most of the match and was way ahead on points. He was in almost every one of Nadal's service games, and was easily holding serve. He ran out of gas in the 5th set, but he should have won in 3! Nadal just beat him on virtually every important point, and lost every other one.

The USO 2009 was less a choke, and more an incredibly clutch performance by DP. It could have been over in 3 if not for a little luck (luck is important sometimes in tennis).

Which chance did Federer truly blow the most? It's definitely the 2009 US Open final vs. Del Potro.

How could anyone pick the 2005/2006 French Open as the chances that Fed blew the most?

shed tears for 30+ non-fed matches which ended with less talented players in semis and finals.

I think USO 2009, he regained is invincibility aura by winning the channel slam so he should've won that one against Del Potro.

Re: Of the slams Fed failed to win, which chance do you think he blew the most?

In order:
2009 USO - I think nobody can believe how the hell he didn't win there.
2005 AO - SuperSafin vs JesusFed. The match could go either way... That was the real final.
2011 USO - Nothing to say here, Djokovic played GREAT in the most difficult situations.
2009 AO - Tired Rafa could have lost that match, but that was "Depresserer".
2008 WIM - It's true that Rafa could had won those tiebreaks. But when they got to a 5th set, Fed played better and he could have won that.

Why are people still debating this? USO 2009 was Olderer's biggest choke of his career.

None of them. He was outplayed in all seven finals he lost and deserved to lose. There's no final where one can say he was particularly unlucky to have lost.

If I had to choose one, maybe AO 2005, he could perhaps have played a bit better on match point vs Safin.

AO 2009 easily.

Nadal was tired from his semi and played like complete shit. The defeat was 100% mental.

At least Del Potro played well in the 2009 US Open final. Nadal didn't even have to in Australia.

The tears were for a reason. He knew it was an unforgivable fuck up.

This is false.
It's true that you can't change the past, but he wasn't outplayed in so many matches that he lost.
The same at some tournaments he won like 2009 RG SF. That could go the other way easily.

But if you think Federer was "outplayed" in 2009 USO, 2005 AO, 2009 AO and 2011 USO, you're really missing the point of the sport.

And this is not coming as a fan. It would be the same if you say Djokovic outplayed Nadal in 2012 AO or 2011 Wimbledon, or even Federer "outplaying" Roddick in 2009 WIM.
