GOAT/Choke/Mug of the Day, Nominations for March 27, 2011

Since we all know that MTF has a penchant for naming a different GOAT every day, I have opened this thread to catalog.

Feel free to predict as well.

For March 25, 2011, when Godig defeats Soderling, he will be today's GOAT. Maybe. If he wins. Or maybe it will be Somdev beating Raonic. Who knows.

There is also Choke of the Day and Mug of the Day, both self-explanatory.


March 25, 2011:

GOAT- Alex Bogomolov Jr.
Choke- Fernando Verdasco
Mug- Andy Murray

March 26, 2011:

GOAT- Carlos Berlocq (The Legendary)
Choke- Marcos Baghdatis
Mug- Ernests Gulbis

Re: GOAT of the Day

Dodig will not beat soderling . he isn't capable of defeating top players except when he plays against bolder version of ivan

La Undécima

Re: GOAT of the Day

It would be fun to have a thread for who we think was the standout player of the day, whether because of an upset or a really hard fight or something.

Looking like Dodig for today

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Söderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo

Re: GOAT of the Day

Somdev GOATvarman looks to be the titlist today after his epic win over 31 seed and former GOAT of the Week Milos Raonic.

Alas, Ivan Dodig's unfathomable choke from 4-1 up in the third with numerous chances to upset Robin Soderling has so far for today earned him the dubious honor of Choke of the Day.

Have a tall one tonight, Ivan

Re: GOAT of the Day/Choke of the Day

Somdev is definitely the GOAT of the Day. The Canadian Queer is the choke of the day.

Re: GOAT of the Day/Choke of the Day

Verdasco still has the chance to lose to Andujar.

I am adding mug of the day.

The day is still young. We could see bigger surprises and surely a bigger choke than Dodig, which didn't seem like much of a choke to me.

Supporting the unusual strokes gang: Dolgopolov, Mayer, Mannarino, Tomic

Dodig up 4-1 in the final to lose 4-6 is more of a choke than Raonic dropping a break up to lose, already being a set down.
