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.
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.

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.
