I mentioned the Ferrer-Acasuso one, but Lisnard and Koubek was so bad it was good. Koubek was up a set and 4-0 and then loses to the legend of Lisnard.

I remember Lisnard made Melzer choke the day before or the day after, i don't remember. Maybe it was not a choke but at least a very close match Melzer was about to win.

Usually when Davydenko is about to win a set against Federer, he shits himself.

Gaudio was up a set and 2 breaks against Hewitt and JCF in Monte Carlo.

Mathieu-Sargisan was too an epic choke at US Open 2004. Mathieu lost 4-6, 4-6, 6-4, 6-2, 7-6(4) despite he won the two first sets and had two matchs points a 6-5 in the fifth.

Let's see:

Coria - Mathieu, was on the winning side in this one
Hewitt - Federer, cost me quite a bit
Udomchoke - Hewitt, nothing
Lisnard - Koubek, few grapes
Delic - Mathieu, nothing
Ferrer - Acasuso, ditto
Nadal - Nalbandian, have long since learnt to hedge
Agassi - Medvedev, wasn't betting back then
Federer - Nadal, won on thisone
Agassi - Blake, nothing
Gonzalez - Blake, lost a parlay
Verdasco - Roddick, won

Youzhny - Mathieu, wasn't betting yet
Tabara - Berdych, can't remember, but it was something
Davydenko - Ancic, around 8.5k (last leg of a parlay)
Blake - Grosjean, won (last leg of a parlay)

He didn't win a single game after that.

Actually Korolev showed there mental strength ina twisted way. After all those wasted match points he could have lost the tie-break and the third set 0-6 or 1-6. Similar story in the 4th set of Roland Garros final between Kuerten and M.Norman.

Yeah, he said after the math that if he'd lost the second set, he would have lost the third as well. But I watched it live and some of the shots he hit on MP were just
