That one was a final of course, you got that wrong. Though I agree with you he should have easily won that match and even played better tennis at the start.
IIRC, Uncle Toni himself said that Roger should have won the first 4 sets
But yeah he had quite a few tight losses. He's a hell of e fighter though, never surrendering (apart from the RG2008 final of course), but usually these fights end up in defeat all the same. Just like he fights against loss rather than for win.
