Olderer should have won that match. He wasn't outplayed or outgrinded. He will victim to his own pride.
AO 2009 final. He served like shit.

8th day of July 2012: 7-time Wimbledon champion!

Once upon a time there was a myth about strong and weak eras. On this glorious day the clownery was eventually unmasked: 30 y.o. past-prime daddy Fed became #1 once again in the supposed strong "Spartan" era with his rivals at their peak.
And they all lived happily ever after.
Long live King Federer!

2005 AO, the match point in SF equal to championship point.
2009 USO, he would have won if he didn't drop 2nd set stupidly
2008 Wimbledon, I know Nadal deserved it, Despite those MP of Nadal in 4th set, Federer was so close in 5th set

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

It's astonishing when you think Rog should have won 6 slams on the trot from 2008 US Open to 2010 Aussie open. Maybe 7 if he didn't mug up the first set of the Wimbledon 2008 final. He was so close. Sure there are others like 2009 Wimbledon he was lucky to win..but he sure should be sitting on more than 17 now. Maybe Nadal would catch him anyway?

That US Open final 2009 Has there ever been a bigger choke on the big stage in professional sport?

"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.

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

AO 2005: Epic MP against Safin
Wimbledon 2008: I thought he would come back from 0-2 Had a breakpoint in the 5th if I recall correctly.
AO 2009: Breakpointconverterer
USO 2009:
All in all, he was 1-2 freaking sets from a Golden Slam.

The game bores me now

Federer - Del Potro

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

he blew a lot, that's for sure.

could've won the CYGS 2009 easily but choked in the hc-finals. uso 2010 and 2011, losing after having matchpoints, 2011 at own serve and had a 2-0 lead

won't say he choked rg 2011, that would be over the top, but it was his biggest chance to beat dull there. choked the 1st set in a horrible way

09 vs DELPO

This is a must win match but just don't know what happen to Federer, looks like a very unusually guy

GO Roger Federer, Nick Kyrgios, Borna Coric, Vasek Pospisil, Kei Nishikori, , Milos Raonic, Jerzy Janowicz, Grigor Dimitrov, Dennis Novikov and Bernard Tomic and Mikael Ymer

Thiem will be No 1 by Dec 2017
Nick Kyrgios will be No 1 by Sep 2018
Mikael Ymer will be No 3 by Dec 2018
Alexander Zverev will be No 3 by Dec 2017

I didn't mention USO 2010 and 2011 cause he was about to face Nadal in the finals and you know how usually that goes

true. most likely nadal would sit on 14 now if fed would've won 2011...

oh, and wimbledon 2011 against tsonga. but i don't know if this was a regular choke. tsonga served out of this world and suddenly transformed into ueber-stronga. i'm sure he would've beaten djokovic in the semis and reached the final, but nadal was waiting there, so...

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

at the Fedfans voting USO 2010 like he was beating that Nadal..i would agree that he most failed to close the door on a first-time Slam finalist like Delpo in USO 2009, but give credit to the then 20-year-old Argentine who simply outclutched him. Anybody else would have shat his pants in those Tbs..Also, Fed had a historically horrendous serving day that night; was completely over the place arguing Jake Garner..and he meekly went away in the 5th under the bludgeoning strokes of Delpotro..Massive performance by Juan..

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

Can't say Federer blew Aus Open 2009. He didn't play his best and was never in a winning position.
Nadal wasn't incredible that day so you can imagine Fed playing at his top level might have won but it just didn't happen.
Also can't say Wimbledon 2008. He had a dip in the second set but other than that he was immense to come from two sets down to take it into the night. It was just Nadal's time.

Its 2009 US for me.

He should have beaten Del Potro. His performance against Djokovic in the semi was immense, the final was his and he blew it and has been said he went on to win Aus 10 so could have had all four slams in his pocket after being reduced to tears by Rafa in 09.

I also want to say 2011 US as he all but beat Djokovic and although it was Nadal in waiting he wasn't playing that well I don't think. Certainly not 2010 or 2013 levels. I include it because he blew the semi at the final hurdle.

Nod to the 2011 French where Fed had good moments throughout the match but at the end of the day I don't think he could ever beat Nadal best of five on a high bouncing clay court.

This thread is the surest sign that everyone thinks 17 is no longer enough.

Roger really blew a couple Slams when he was at his peak + 2009 to Delpo. Should have been on 20 slams right now.

What's amazing is that all these losses would have broken a lesser player, but Roger responds from them better than anyone.
