Yes, many players on tour this year have experienced OSIABFS. The "Oh Shit! I'm About to Beat Federer Syndrome." Too many times, a player has come so close to beating Federer. Being up a set and a break, having match points, going to a 5th set, 3rd set tiebreaker, or merely having Federer on the ropes at some point. Call it choking, call it shitting of the pants, call it Federer raising his game. Call it what you want, I call it OSIABFS.
The only question is: Can anyone else
step up to the plate and find a cure for this horrid syndrome? Currently, only one man has the cure, but he has yet to find the solution to other diseases, such as Tomas or James.
Can anyone find the cure? Or will we be doomed to experience this horrible disease to continue to spread and intensify throughout the tour?
