Re: Meaning of the word " Choke "
So I emphasize it is not simply missing a big shot in an important tiebreaker, it is rather the complete inability to recuperate.
This is very true. I also think the opponent outplaying you does not count as a choke either.
People can complain all they want. But Federer did not choke against Djokovic in the last two U.S. Opens.
Djokovic's return of serves and dominant plays off the baseline ensured victories in both matches.
