IWs: Losing 3rd set TB
MC: Losing 2nd set TB and so going into 3rd set and losing the match
W: Losing 3rd set TB. He would've been up 2 sets
RC: Losing 2nd set TB and so couldn't push the match into 3rd set

Fed used to eat those TBs for breakfast even against the best of servers. He can't win them anymore and it's costing him 3 MS and a Wimbledon.

He was lucky to make it to a TB yesterday against Tsonga, and at Wimbledon he won one of two tiebreaks, one where Djokovic had every chance to win it as well, and that was the only thing that kept it from being a straight sets defeat.

The IW tiebreak was obviously costly, but I would concur with the idea that it's more of a case of him just getting to a lot of tiebreaks while getting outplayed.

The reason Fraud is losing TB's is because he can't hide behind his serve as easily. His awful return game is being exposed more and more these days and when the match reaches crucial stages, his girly backhand and overrated forehand both get exposed. Karlovic also has a bad record in TB's. Serve only players generally struggle to win tie breaks, as it's one area of the game where they have to rely on ground game.
