He wasn't clutch and never will be. Even in his prime he would loose most of the matches that were close. Vs Safin in AO, Nalbandian at WTF, Gasquet in MC, vs Berdych in Olympics, Nadal in Rome, etc. And well, after that against Djokovic in USO 2010, in 2011, etc. How many times did he lose having MP or being really close to wining??

He is nowhere near as clutch as Sampras or Nadal.
If you're as good as Federer is, when you lose a match, it's going to be close. Hence when you focus on his defeats you get a distorted view of the situation.

Did Federer blow away the competition at AO 06, when he was taken to five sets by Haas, and 4 by Davydenko (winning the last two in tight tiebreaks)? Did he blow away Nadal at Wimbledon 2007, when he took two tiebreaks (one 9-7) because he was unable to break Nadal once in 3 sets? Did he blow away Roddick in Wimbledon 2009? Did he blow away Djokovic in USO 2007? Who came back from 0-2 down and 1-2 down in successive matches to win FO 2009? Who won the longest BO3 match of all time? And Wimbledon 2012 - that was a really easy victory right?

Here's a final question. Do you know who has the best tiebreak record of all time? Hint: it isn't Sampras.

Re: Rank the 'clutch gene' of the top 10

Murray last? How many times does Murray serves aces on break points? He's in the top half, that's for sure.

ANDY MURRAY

SLAMS: 3 WINS, 8 finals, 9 semi-finals, 7 quarter-finals...
MASTERS: 12 WINS, 5 finals, 13 semi-finals, 18 quarter-finals...
WTF: 3 semi-finals...
OTHER: Two-time Olympic gold medalist and Davis Cup champion...
MATCH WIN/LOSS: 601-171...
TITLES: 39 and counting...

Re: Rank the 'clutch gene' of the top 10

sampras doesn't have the 5 set record because he either demolished his opponents in straights

or lost in 3-4 sets

rarely went to 5

everyone is better in the 'clutch' than the old swiss fraud

unless being clutch means 'choking match points' in 3 and 5 setters

it's easy to look 'clutch' when you hit ace after ace against talentless ballbashers and fat, slow all serve clowns

real clutch champions don't cry for laver or refuse flags or blame team-mates

Seems legit.

But I would switch Ferrer with Murray.

We rarely agree, but this time we definitely do. Maybe Federer ahead of Murray is the only change I'd make.

MTF games titles:

Suicide Tennis (5): Wimbledon 2014, World Tour Finals 2015, Madrid 2015, Kuala Lumpur 2014 and Metz 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 WTF, 1 Masters 1000, 2 ATP 250; 2 finals lost

Fill-in-the-Draw (3): US Open 2014, Rotterdam 2013 and Geneva 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 ATP 500 and 1 ATP 250

Tennis Tipping (3): Veneza and Todi 2014 (with vn01), Knoxville 2015 (with Redkop) - 3 challengers; 7 finals lost

Re: Rank the 'clutch gene' of the top 10

Nadal isn't really all that clutch. He's got an inflated ranking by everyone on here because apart from Djokovic no one is clutch in the truest sense of the word from the top 10.
