Re: Laver's Biggest Dissapointment - 1972 WCT Finals
Will definitely read this a bit later.
I'm sure every player has at least one of these.
Federer the AO or especially the USO finals of 09, Nadal one of the last 3 slams, especially being up 4-2 30-15 at the AO, Djokovic perhaps his has yet to come. Roddick the 09 Wimbledon final w/o a doubt, Borg the USO finals of 1980, McEnroe was too good in 81, Connors probably the fact that he didn't even play RG in '74. Tilden way back in the late 20's and early 30's losing in 5 sets to Lacoste or Cochet in the finals of the French, Johnny Mac choking the 2 set lead vs. Lendl at RG '84, and so on.
Every great player has at least one great defeat, disappointment.
