Biggest tanker

Should be easy

"I asked a bloke in the front row if he liked the serve-and-volley stuff," said Rafter. "He said he did but asked if he was going to get to see any rallies. 'Not today, mate,' I told him."

Re: Biggest tanker

lol I remember Safin tanking twice: In 2000 AO and in RG 2005 for 2 sets.

Gaudio, however

Re: Biggest tanker

Tanking = You're losing in a set so you completely abandon your game plan and throw the set away.

Monfils does not come back to win many sets, but the choice from this list is obvious, Gaston Gaudio.

Re: Biggest tanker

I've seen Murray tank a set in order to preserve energy for the next set. He done this against Nalbandian at Wimbledon.

It has to be Gaudio though.
