Coria was too scared of having a future with expectations. Even w/2 sets, he couldn't
get easy serve winners. Gaudio knew he
would melt down with a nervous serve problem.

Roddick was always looking for an inferiority
complex against Federer. No matter how
bad Fed played, he'd still lose 4-2 leads,
4 set points & 3 match points.
Only when he was old at 29,
his serve overcame his nonexistent composure,
lack of talent & slowness vs. Federer.
Fed didn't need a game plan before 2012 vs. Roddick because Roddick was useless for a decade.

I know this thread has been "decided", but I was discussing a retired favorite of mine, Grosjean, and relived his unfortunate crumble in the '01 AO semis against Clement. I can't believe no one, including myself, mentioned it before.

Grosjean looked to have the match wrapped up in straights. He earned two MP's, one on Clement's serve at 3-5, and another on his own at 5-4, but couldn't close the deal. To Clement's credit, he stepped it up and came up with some great pressure play, including that amazing volley down 40-30 on Sebi's serve. For Grosjean, the choking really came after the fact... He seemed to wilt to Clement's elevated game, and blew what could / should have been a routine win.

I don't think Tsonga choked in the match, Nole just played the important points extremely well and capitalised on the momentum. Not every loss from a winning position is a chok.

Djokovic is just a very clutch player but most of those players REALLY chocked it away.

Almagro verse Ferrer at this years Australian Open is undoubtedly the greatest choke in the history of chocking.
