Of the slams Fed failed to win, which chance do you think he blew the most?
There are a number I feel.
2003 AO, close match he lost against Nalbandian. It seemed no one was stopping Shaggassi that year, but I feel if any player could have taken out Shaggassi, would have been a good match up seeing as no one put in a decent performance against Andre.
2003 USO, would have been interesting had he beaten Nalbandian. Should have steamrolled Roddick and Fur Choko given the way each played.
2005/2006 French Open, had a decent chance. Maybe if he had brung a different game against Capsical. Dont see Pureta beating Fed in a slam final.
2005 AO - match point against Cafin, would surely have destroyed Hugh Witt in the final infront of his home crowd.
2009 AO - Grrrrrrrrrr. Despite never actually being infront in terms of sets in the match, he would be very dissapointed in not nabbing that one.
2009 USO - Same story really, but was quite a bad choke.
2008 AO, cant help but feel Djokovic was just too clutch, and the way he played against Tipsarabitch, im not sure this slam was ever falling into Rogers arms. Others may dissagree.
2010 US Open.
2010 French Open - fanboys dont delude yourself, Rafa was pretty average for much of this tournament even though he didnt drop a set, if Roger were ever going to win on clay against Rafa, he had a DECENT chance in 2010.
2001 Wimbledon - could make a case for it.
Which one do you feel it was? Feds been so fortunate, but as you can see, its not just Nadal thats cost him some history. Nalbandian was quite a thorn in his side for a time in the early years.
Have fun with this.
