Henman losing to Hewitt -Queens Club final 2001: 7-6 7-6
Roddick vs that British fellow (I am embarrassed to forget his name, was it Baker?) in 1R Wimbledon 2012

Typical antics all came out in this match: faking injuries, grimacing and cursing, trying to peg Fed, trying to start drama, undeserved final based on an exhausted old man and a joke draw.

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned....

Good call. U.S. Open 2005. 2nd round I think. That was an absolutely outstanding match.

Another great loss to Federer was Suzuki (I think) at the 2005 A.O.

Federer also beat Santoro in the 2004 US Open, the last two sets there were very tight. Federer nearly botched the third set tie-break.
