There's something right about the thread title.

I can't say because I've never seen any player choke against Nadal. Everyone seems to play a match of their life vs him, even the low ranked players :sad:

A win is a win, and when you play enough matches on tour, you'll win and lose in every possible way.

Well, since everything on MTF is a chokejob, I would have to say yes. I've said this before - if you blow a lead, no matter what the circumstance or how it played out, it's a choke job according to MTF. I've never heard someone on here talk about a "valiant comeback" or a "gutsy win from a losing position", even though those are actually more common than chokes.

I definitely enjoy seeing my favourite come from behind to win either a set or the match. If the opponent is clearly giving it away I enjoy it less. If the opponent is playing lights out my fave still wins I obviously enjoy it more.

Basically this. Yesterday, during the 2nd set of Federer-Murray, Federer played two abysmal service games and got broken both times. Of the three times Federer broke back, he played superb the first time, capitalized on a Murray choke the 2nd time, and again played superb the third time. If anything, it was Federer who tried to choke the 2nd set. A supposedly 'choke free' 2nd set would have let to Federer winning it 6-2.

Yes. Feeling of relief, but still happy they get the points money, and chance at going further. Montanes gets a fair few, being quite clutch himself. Haas and Ferrer on the other hand :help: are usually on the other side but still nice when they do get one.

Dunno, can't say, never seen him getting a... Oh right.

The Fed Murray match isn't the best example since Fed won in straights anyway, chokejob or not. But a wins a win, gotta look forward to the next match.

Obviously Cilic's fan would've been disappointed by the way Nalby imploded to give him Queens.
