Most heartbreaking losses in players's careers.

Djokovic - Madrid SF 2009/USO 2010 F/Olypmics 2008 SF. Pretty sure these are the most heartbreaking losses for Nole.
Murray - Wimbledon 2012 probably.
Federer - Too many. I'll let his fans decide.
Nadal - Probably AO 2012 final. RG 2009 R4. Wimbly 2007 final too maybe (I heard he cried after that match. Not sure.) Let's see what Rafa fans say.
Del Potro - RG 2009 SF probably. He cried after that match.
Ferrer - I don't know. Maybe Mugami 2013 F.
Berdych - ????? Not sure I can call his loss in Wimbly final the most heartbreaking in his career. He was so shit in that match.
Tsonga - probably RG 2012 QF.
Tipsarevic - USO 2012 QF.
Gasquet - ????
Wawrinka - Surely AO 2013 4th round.

let's make a long list. Could you guys help me? you can only pick 3 losses for each player.

Re: Most heartbreaking losses in players's careers.

Old mans was 2009 AO final for sure. He thought he could easily beat a tired Rafa but no.

Re: Most heartbreaking losses in players's careers.

As for Gasqet, It would be FO 2010 or 08 Wimbeldon. Choked so badly in both.

let's make a list of the top 50. Could you guys help me? you can only pick 3 losses for each player.
For Del Potro it was definitely the Olympic SF last year.

Cilic - THE CHOKE

Berdych - I'd go with the Madrid final last year, he was the best player all week and choked a pretty winnable final against Federer. Berdych generally doesn't have that many gut wrenching losses though, or at least he makes sure he loses big matches in clear fashion I suppose.

Soderling - WTF 2009 semis probably

Monfils - Paris 2009 final

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: Most heartbreaking losses in players's careers.

Berdych's could be the World Tour Finals match against Djokovic in 2011. Djokovic probably played his best match since winning the US Open (not that it says much), but the fact Berdych kept to his game and did everything in his power to keep the match competitive said so much. Then of course from match point up his forehand went and he practically handed the match away.

Re: Most heartbreaking losses in players's careers.

Ferrer: SF Olympic doubles 2012, Final Miami 2013 plus one of these three: SF AO 2011, QF Wimbledon 2012 or SF US Open 2012.

Re: Most heartbreaking losses in players's careers.

Ferrer's definitely today. I doubt he will ever have a better chance to win a big title against an elite player.

Re: Most heartbreaking losses in players's careers.

No heartbreak can compare to McEnroe's 1984 defeat by Lendl at Roland Garros. Mac won the first two sets then he lost focus after getting pissed at a photographer. In the end John choked his one chance to win the French. After this loss McEnroe went Hollywood and started doing drugs leading to inevitable decline.

Nah clearly it wasn't, considering how he performed after the loss, to bounce back and win the Bronze.

Mark Lenders banged your girlfriend, I'm sorry to tell you that mate.
