Who's Mr. Clutch on the ATP Tour?

Who usually performs on the big points in the big games? When it matters most, which player(s) always delivers?

Vote and discuss.

It should be someone who goes for his shots on bp's and mp's and makes them the vast majority of the time.

Re: Who's Mr. Clutch on the ATP Tour?

although he's been a bit less lately, Nadal in general for sure. Not to say he NEVER chokes, but definitely in general he lets less things get to him

Re: Who's Mr. Clutch on the ATP Tour?

This is like asking who's the better player on clay. Tell me which active player has been clutchest than Nadal in Slams. The clutchest player is the clutchest in Slams. Other tourneys are peanuts.

Re: Who's Mr. Clutch on the ATP Tour?

Delpo

Juan Martin Del Potro


But he lost 23 times against you.
's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.

Nadal is not clutch in Slams he is just playing great and winning by a great margin...Look all four sets he lost to Djokovic on clay this year...He served to stay in that set...I rest my case

I love how you support a claim about slams by using non-slam evidence.

As for the topic, I say Montanes.

Used to be Nadal. He chokes a lot now. I say Novak right now.

Re: Who's Mr. Clutch on the ATP Tour?

Clutch is the ability to win the key points when needed. If so, it has to be one of the big servers obviously. Nadal used to be clutch, he isnt too mentally strong now. As opposed to many- I think Djokovic isnt that clutch actually, I remember seeing a lot of unforced errors on BP before his streak. Federer was never clutch, so he is out of the question.

Raonic is a great prospect for clutchness tbh.

FEDERER
KARLOVIC

RAONIC

AND ALL OTHER SERVEBOTS


SERVEBOTS ARE TENNIS

The Fog, of course.

In short, he does whatever he wants whenever he wants. That is his special trolling power.

Re: Who's Mr. Clutch on the ATP Tour?

how the fuck did nobody vote for Federer? Did you all see his match against Djokovic or were you drunk/shitfaced?

Even in the Djoko match he wasted break points. Federer is not clutch, even when he wins.
