that 2009 US open was a missed oppurtunity to add to the slam tally and looking back his best chance at the non calender slam

Australian open 2009 will always be my main regret he was better than Nadal that day but Nadal somehow managed to get to 2 sets-all.

He could have won the US Open 2009 because Del Potro felt the pressure in the beginning of the match, hadn't slept and eaten : if Fed had won second set yes he would probably have won ... by luck because of that pressure Del Potro felt.

But Del Potro was the better player that day.

The US Open 2011 (more than the US Open 2010) and Roland Garros 2011, should have been included if the thread had been made earlier

Fed was ahead in the game because the two sets Nadal won, especially the third one, Fed was the better player during those sets.

Nadal was tired, not at his best, that day.

Del Potro was pretty aweful, and even as the match wore on his stamina and first serve percentage dropped dramatically..it was just a gift from the gods, never ever going to be his day.
Del Potro awful in USO 2009 final ? and getting worse as the match went by ?

AO 2009 was the most painful, outplayed Nadal for 4 sets and lost 2...

USO 2009 was a massive choke, he would have never lost with a 2-0 lead, but couldn't close out that second set... That break gave JMDP big confidence and he hit a lot better.

On a side note, in both finals Fed served like shit. Wonder if he had any kind of back problems, cause those serve % are difficult to explain otherwise.

French Open 2004 and Wimbledon 2008 were the biggest missed opportunies, in my opinion.

But which slams did he actually "blow" (i.e. throw away by his own error)? Probably US Open 2009 and US Open 2011 (alright, the first match point was saved entirely by Djokovic's genius/insane return, but he should have regrouped and taken the second one).

Clearly the Delpo match in 09 USO, he had JMDP on the ropes and really fucked it up.

As much as I like Del Potro, that USO 2009 loss was disgusting.

09 US Open and 05 AO semi v Safin are the 2 slams he threw away

the 2 Nole semi finals at USO, we will never know had he beaten Nadal in those finals

the 2008 Wim final he was flat outplayed and just made it closer by the score than it seemed, even having BP at 4-3 in the fifth set

2009 USO. Though 2009 AO was pretty bad.

Imagine if he was more mentally tough. 2nd player to achieve the Grand Slam

In RG 2011 final, Federer losing the first set after leading 5*-2 AD was a disgusting choke.

He wouldn't have won the match though

A.O. 2009. Without those mental demons against Nadull he would have won it in straight sets.

Lately definetelly USO 2011.

He practically had a won match in semis and in final on that kind of surface i think he'd beat Nadal.

2011 RG was the closest i felt he was to Nadal in RG.
