Im suprised Djokovic hasnt recieved more votes, a few seasons ago before he matured into a superb player he had a a brilliant FOR TB record, many of them clutch breakers too.

I think it was the season when he played mardy fish in the us open

For sure recently he has been less explosive in tight situations

I voted Hewitt by accident . I didn't read carefully and thought about the worst clutch player. Probably Rafa here.

last time I remember Federer doing it was in Doha QF against Kohlschreiber where he saved set points at 6-2 6-6 (3-6*) and (4-6*) and eventually won the match 6-2 7-6(6), he does it pretty often so yeah.

In honesty I'm not sure if the thread starter is referring to the 'clutch player' being serving or receiving.

If we're talking nerves in tough situations I think we can reasonably discount Davydenko, Gasquet and Hewitt.

For returning I'd go with Nadal. For serving probably Federer. But this sort of situation comes down more to first-serve percentages, match-ups and luck really, such that it is hard to distinguish between players.

If it's nerves, it's probably Nadal. He forces you to come up with a winning shot in such situations.

Maybe this stats would help a little bit. Top 10 players and their record in tie-breaks with at least 14 points (8-6/6-8)... main-level only:

1 Nadal, Rafael 12-14 (46 %)
2 Federer, Roger 54-30 (64 %)
3 Djokovic, Novak 14-12 (53 %)
4 Murray, Andy 7-4 (63 %)
5 Davydenko, Nikolay 23-20 (57 %)
6 Tsonga, Jo-Wilfried 6-4 (60 %)
7 Simon, Gilles 8-5 (61 %)
8 Roddick, Andy 48-34 (58 %)
9 Del Potro, Juan Martin 2-4 (33 %)
10 Blake, James 24-25 (48 %)

Nieminen - Nalbandian at the moment 3-6 7-6(9) 0:1...

Nieminen 24-16 (60 %)
Nalbandian 9-19 (32 %)

It helps to understand partly why Fat Dave lost that tie-break to Nieminen.
