The Mandela effect in Tennis

Quote:
The Mandela Effect refers to a phenomenon in which a large number of people share false memories of past events, referred to as confabulation in psychiatry. Some have speculated that the memories are caused by parallel universes spilling into our own, while others explain the phenomenon as a failure of collective memory.
In 2010, blogger Fiona Broome coined the term “Mandela Effect” to describe a collective false memory she discovered at the Dragon Con convention, where many others believed that former South African President Nelson Mandela died during his imprisonment in the 1980s
Let's document the instances where we were certain a tennis match went one way but actually went differently in reality.
- 2008: I remembered that Federer took a set against Djokovic in the Aus Open SF loss. In reality, he lost in straights.
- 2010: I remembered that Federer blew two match points on his own serve, and on the latter point he tried to hit a DTL forehand that bounced off the let cord into the tramlines. In reality, the two MPs were on Djokovic's serve. Both were Djokovic's winners.
- 2012: I remembered that Federer lost 5-7 the 4th set against Nadal in Aus Open. In reality, it was 4-6.

I vaguely remember Tomas Berdych showing mental tougness at some point in his career. Don't know when and which tournament though.
Also, Fognini not acting like a lunatic on court.
See what I did there?

This one probably happened because you've got it mixed up with the 2011 SF

Re: The Mandela effect in Tennis

I keep thinking that Nadal beat Djokovic in the 2011 RG Final, in reality he beat Federer.

This is what happened in their USO'11 encounter, though the first MP was more merit of Djokovic, but the 2nd MP was exactly as you described, maybe not exactly, in my memory it was slighlty inside out FH hit from a more central position.

In USO'10, the MPs were indeed in Nole's serve.

Re: The Mandela effect in Tennis

It was actually a full inside out FH but it didn't even go over the net. I thought it had gone over the net and that the ball had landed in the doubles rectangle.

All 4 MPs from both years compiled in one video:

Which is what made my memory even weirder. I explicitly remembered Federer wearing his USO '10 outfit hitting a DTL approach shot from the deuce court, which would have been a winner, but hit the let cord and bounced into the tramlines.

Maybe it was a point at Deuce. I do have the idea that the point was first constructed and not let cord on Fed's 2nd shot. But I remember clearly that it happened on the side of the court where Fed was in USO'11 and not in USO'10. What a mess!

Yeah, I vaguely remember something like that.
