Has Federer ever won a match from match-point down?

I can remember him losing on at four occasions from match point up, but not the other way round. Nearest he came that I can remember was saving MPs in a tie break against Rafa in *that* final, but of course he went onto lose.

Nole on the ther hand makes something of a speciality of this.

Could be a stain on Federer's legacy.

Where are the MTF experts to clarify this?

Off the top of my head, he saved a couple of match points in Halle 2006 against Rochus

He may have had one or two other matches, but I can't remember.

Regardless, saving match points is nice and all, but just a cool stat.. I mean losing a match is still losing a match, match point or not.

Agreed. Clearly meaningless, unless a player develops a habit of getting to match point and losing. I've tried to think of examples for a while and today's match reminded me. Del Potro got within two points of victory on numerous occasions, but never one.

Irrelevant thread. The Goat doesn't go match point down often

Re: Has Federer ever won a match from match-point down?

I can remember a lot of matches, but big quantaty here really doesn`t show smth wonderfull. If player wins many matches with mps down, i guess it shows vulnerability in the first place. I prefer as little such wins for Fed as possible. But sure, that`s better than losses. Simply not that relevant.

Gasquet is next №1

Would be such a huge blemish if he hadn't. Too good to go MPs down.

I think in 2005 during the tournament in Dubai he was down MPs to either Ferrero or Rochus and ended up winning.

This is one I did remember, but I wasn't 100% sure, so I didn't say anything. I 99% sure he had to save one against Ferrero in Dubai.

He did against Ferrero, on Ferrero's serve in the third set tie-beak.

Another thread where someone tries to put a stain on Roger's achievements is swatted away like the nothingness it represents.
