Default Of the slams Fed failed to win, which chance do you think he blew the most?

There are a number I feel.

2003 AO, close match he lost against Nalbandian. It seemed no one was stopping Shaggassi that year, but I feel if any player could have taken out Shaggassi, would have been a good match up seeing as no one put in a decent performance against Andre.

2003 USO, would have been interesting had he beaten Nalbandian. Should have steamrolled Roddick and Fur Choko given the way each played.

2005/2006 French Open, had a decent chance. Maybe if he had brung a different game against Capsical. Dont see Pureta beating Fed in a slam final.

2005 AO - match point against Cafin, would surely have destroyed Hugh Witt in the final infront of his home crowd.

2009 AO - Grrrrrrrrrr. Despite never actually being infront in terms of sets in the match, he would be very dissapointed in not nabbing that one.

2009 USO - Same story really, but was quite a bad choke.

2008 AO, cant help but feel Djokovic was just too clutch, and the way he played against Tipsarabitch, im not sure this slam was ever falling into Rogers arms. Others may dissagree.

2010 US Open.

2010 French Open - fanboys dont delude yourself, Rafa was pretty average for much of this tournament even though he didnt drop a set, if Roger were ever going to win on clay against Rafa, he had a DECENT chance in 2010.

2001 Wimbledon - could make a case for it.

Which one do you feel it was? Feds been so fortunate, but as you can see, its not just Nadal thats cost him some history. Nalbandian was quite a thorn in his side for a time in the early years.

Have fun with this.

Didnt seem legit to add 2004 FO to the poll given how comprehensivly beaten Fed was, but given what a mug fest the final turned out to be, and the fact this was a Nadal less edition of the tournament, maybe a case could be made for 2004 French Open. A chance to nab a crown before Nadal became a force.

2005 & 2009 AO and USO. Possibly Wimbledon 2008 as well, came down to one break of serve in that very last game

That loss to Nadull at the AO was just a colossal fiasco. I can't imagine how someone could possibly top that.

Del Potro is much better than Nadull on hard courts. Especially if we consider the USO was a bit fast that year.

regardless he was two points away...he was always behind in the AO the only reason to think that he should have won is the fact that he is the better hard court player...he was never that close

USO '09 Federer clearly should've closed out. The two forehands he completely threw away in the 4th set tb were just unbelievable.

USO09 ... it was such a blowout, people were leaving the stadium. and yet he manages to find a way to lose. more backhand rallies please!
Wimbly 08. Federer treated break points like they were AIDS. 1/13 gg.
AO09. was dominating Rafa and then just completely bottled it in the 5th. really good job by Nadal though for picking up the 2 sets while facing a far superior level of tennis.
