Biggest Chokes of 2012?

Sydney R1 Qualies: Marinko Matosevic led Kukushkin 6-1 5-1. Lost 6/7(5) 2-6.

Last week in Chennai we had Kavcic losing from 6-4 5-1 to Darcis.

These two will be tough to beat come the end of the year.

Hopefully someone saw the matches and there were some extenuating circumstances for either player.

Keep track of only the major, major ones in here. Will be fun to look back on in the off season

Keep track of the chokes at the end of the season, then will poll the top 10.

“ On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: The Biggest Chokes of 2012 (Enter Marinko Matosevic)

I'm hearing that Dusan Lajovic led Matteo Viola 5-0 in the third set and then *5-4 40-0

"at least 6 or 7 match points" according to source.

Oz Open R1 qualies:

Viola d Lajovic 6-2, 6-7(8), 8-6

Re: The Biggest Chokes of 2012 (Dusan Lajovic, take a bow)

He had 5-0 with his oppponent serving at 0-40, he had a load of mp in that game and in the one after but once it went to 5-2 I don't think he had any more.

We can handle the prize to Lajovic and close the thread
This will be impossible to beat

I would still give Verdasco a good chance of taking this valuable title.
