Choosing the biggest facepalm of 2011

We're choosing the thing that has caused the biggest mischief and facepalm in the world of tennis in 2011. I guess I should give some picks to help you with making up your mind, but I'm sure you can think of it yourself.

For me it was when a top 20 (or whatever was his ranking a few weeks ago, similar to that) Feliciano Lopez after making a semifinal in Shanghai Masters went to Orleans to play a challenger for appearance fee. Once he got it, he peacefully lost in R1.

Re: Choosing the biggest facepalm of 2011

Nadals ass picking.

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.

1. Troicki choking.

2. Montanes being too much of a mug against injured Fognini.

3. Murray and #3 fiasco.

Re: Choosing the biggest facepalm of 2011

Albert Costa selecting Lopez/Verdasco to play the DC final, when they are 3-17 on their last 20 matches as a doubles team, when he had an in-form Granollers available and Nadal for example is a big contender for the biggest facepalm of 2011.

Especially, when they lost on a similar situation in the SF against Llodra/Tsonga by 6-1 6-2 6-0!

Re: Choosing the biggest facepalm of 2011

The biggest is serving for the USO finals, then losing serve, and match, wasting 2MP in the process.

Re: Choosing the biggest facepalm of 2011

How about Murray in the semi final against Nadal over hitting that forehand on break point? Lost the match from there.

Re: Choosing the biggest facepalm of 2011

I know what tard da fail would say-

Biggest facepalm is Nadal's coin toss against Djokovic


Federer / Haas / Safin / Gaudio / Kuerten / Youzhny / Nadal / Gonzalez / Ljubicic / Hewitt / Soderling / Wawrinka / Coria / Nalbandian / Kohlschreiber

(Tbh, it still looks in to me - no gap between the mark and the line, but I seem to recall the TV's hawkeye said it was out.)

Hey I've always wondered that about you.

E. Any about 90% of MTF too I think.

Federer / Haas / Safin / Gaudio / Kuerten / Youzhny / Nadal / Gonzalez / Ljubicic / Hewitt / Soderling / Wawrinka / Coria / Nalbandian / Kohlschreiber

Re: Choosing the biggest facepalm of 2011

I think it is not the coin toss per say but deciding to receive after winning it.

Because if he had decided to serve, the whole scoreline would have been the opposite.
