tsonga and djokovic beating federer down from 2 sets to love in Wimby and USO respectively are the best comebacks of the year according to the ATP - http://www.atpworldtour.com/News/Tennis/2011/12/Features/Top-Comebacks-Of-2011.aspx

Dodig coming back to score the lucky win against Nadal will be the highlight of his mediocre career.

It's not bitterness, it's the truth. Mugdig lucked out against zero confidence Nadal. It sickens me that this clown beat the GOAT.

Yeah, there's a difference between a choke and a comeback. You wouldn't call Gaudio's win a comeback, that was a textbook choke.

According to the ATP any 'big' comeback, match, etc. has to include a top 4 player 99% of the time. It's pathetic to say the least.

how did Fed choke? ....first match point Novak hits a clean winner...second match point Fed was unlucky....when the fuck did he choke...Novak hit like 10 winners in the last 3 games ....

Kubot over Almagro and Robert over Berdych in RG because the were clear outsiders and won from 0-2 playing real offensive tennis.

djokovic had excellent court positioning during the double fault for the break

Nadal coming back in the 2nd and 3rd set against Golubev at the USO. It was a thing of beauty. It was a thing of majesty. It was the greatest straight sets comeback of all time.

It was either that or have another serve routinely dismissed.

Tsonga against Fed in that Wimbledon QF, no doubt about that.
I think it was amazing how Tsonga managed to keep his cool after losing those first two sets - while in fact playing very well during most of those sets apart from those two serve games he got broken. Didn't flinch, didn't blink, just kept his composure and continued his good playing, quite in contrary to what one sees happening so often - a player just throwing the towel when being 0-2 sets down against a 'top player'. He deserves all kudos for that performance.

I've seen quite a few posts claiming that Fed was 'too passive' in the following three sets, which might have some degree of truth, but imho Tsonga just showed amazing mental fortitude and took full advantage of Fed's level decreasing whereas he managed to keep it up himself.
An outstanding and very well-deserved victory!

Uhm yeah, you're probably right. The very first game in the first set.
Obviously being nervous - right thereafter he really got his stuff together.

Yes he was down 2-5 in the third but I watched this match, and trust me, it was no comeback. Just a textbook choke. De Bakker missed some easy volleys at decisive moments.

Muster comeback vs Mayer was up there in the unlikeliness stakes.

from 1-6 2-5 or something as a 13.00 odds dog prematch.

dodig was smashed up in the 1st set very badly by a fresh and extremely healthy nadal... 6-1 was the score in an absolute demolition... what you'd expect really... but, that only lasted until the beastly croat exposed to the viewing public and nadal his two massive dodigs... nadal did not know where to look.... someone down the other end just having no regard for what has been said about nadal's masculinity... dodig didn't care... didn't worry dodig... he didn't give a shit... 7-6 dodig won the second.. but soon the croat was looking squarely down the barrel in the 3rd as nadal was serving for the match... but again... dodig displays what is concealed beneath his undergarments...

result...?

two great comebacks inside one match...

simply put: a masterclass in how you repeatedly put a living legend to the sword when you are under the pump...

Yes, of course Fed choked in the USO semifinal.

Tsonga's. He was mentally tough, made absolutely no mistakes to get those 3 sets. Federer couldn't do anything. And it wasn't a choke at all. The guy was in some kind of zone. Hitting all his serves and shots during those 3 sets.

Tsonga's comeback. He deserved a lot of credit for being broken just once in a 5-set match.

Nole's comeback was stunning, but Fed played a part in it: there was a great return from Djokovic on the first match point, but Fed should've taken the second... instead he missed a routine inside-out forehand.

he didnt miss it he was just unlucky to hit a net cord

Yes, we can say luck wasn't on Fed side in that case... anyway when you are serving for the match 40-15 you have to bring it home.

Credit to Nole for saving the first match point and putting pressure on Federer, but I think Fed should have taken the second one. After that he was just spraying errors left and right.

Is it that hard to understand, Saberq? Ofc he missed. Doesn't matter if it was a net cord, he should have done it, period.

De Bakker served only once for the match against Monfils - and it was a terrible choke.

Almagro did a good come back against Andreev in the AO.
Verdasco against Stepanek should be mentionned.
I agree with Renaud about Robert and Kubot, truly amazing.
Djokovic and Tsonga of course.

Oh, I almost forgot Mello against Dancevic in the first round of Wimbledon, considering Mello was 0-6 on grass before this match I believe : he saved a MP in the fourth and came back from 0-2. Awful lost for my money.
