And when was the last time he lost in straight sets without a "7" in the result?

Was there ever a player who lost a bigger fraction of his "lose"-matches in the deciding set?

lets make a list of all Federer-loses...

Davydenko in Doha.

4-6 4-6

before that MC 2009 to Stan le Man

I guess he had a "7" result against Wawrinka.

Rafa at RG in 08 was I think the last time he was straight setted in a major...

:spit: :haha: - I'd like to see the list of the other players round their 30's. ;)

49 Richard Gasquet (FRA) 7-6(1), 2-6, 6-7(8)

Now this one is interesting. Gasquet was a qualifying wild card in that event (Monte Carlo 2005) and Federer lost to him in the quarter-finals of the main draw. I don't know of any other player to lose to a qualifying wild card in the quarter-finals. Could it be that the GOAT is the only player to lose to the lowest form of tournament entry at that later stage? :eek:

Thanks for the list Judio!!

A particularly memorable Federer loss was the one to Kuerten at the FO. It was an intense battle, and the atmosphere was wild. Kuerten was past his prime but played some of his best ever tennis that match. His b/h is one of the best ever and better than Federer’s on clay IMO. Fed couldn’t handle the pace and heaviness of it in that match.

Judio, great work on compiling up that list :yeah:

04-29-2010, 12:49 PM

i think its something like this...

1. Nadal - 13
2. Nalbandian - 8
3. Hewitt - 7
4. Murray - 6

"I think as the tournament would have gone forward I would have found my groove more and more, and who knows what would have happened?” said Roger Federer after blowing three match points in a three set loss to Marcos Baghdatis in Indian Wells. “But I don’t need to worry about that anymore. It’s about resting because I do feel the first match in my body. It’s something that always is tough, coming from a long layover and all of a sudden playing matches. But, the season is long. There’s no need to panic here.”

“I fought as much as I could… My game has issues at the moment. I’m definitely lacking timing. I don’t know where that comes from…It fuels my desire to go to the practice courts, because I don’t like to lose these type of matches,” Federer said after blowing a match point in a three set loss to Tomas Berdych in Miami.

“I hope I can come back from this. That’s usually what I do after a loss like this. Sometimes it takes a loss to wake up and shake you up for your approach the next week. When you always win, sometimes you forget how hard it is. That’s why today I don’t get too worried about this loss,” said Federer after saving six match points before going down in three sets to Ernest Gulbis in Rome.

Go, Fedclown. Go!!

Yes, he is such a big choker.

It's incredible how this mug managed to win 16 majors.
