Is Nole becoming a leader in double faults on match points during important matches? Two times in finals at FO, against Rafa at semi Olympics ... What do you think? Not normal, yes?

He is a not a big match player, getting nervous when it counts

federer fans put a lot of pressure on nole to safeguard the number 17, so yes he keeps doing it.

He is faking, as if the match is in his racquet, as if he donated the match to Nadal :shrug:
What a gutless clown.

Well, the Olympics was 6 years ago. And how he went away 8-7 against Rafa last year and then a love service loss. How he botched that easy shot against Wawrinka. This is the same guy who hit those amazing shots on match points against Roger ... Not the same guy it seems

He needs to rediscover that edge....

He never made a DF at the Olympics semis, he missed a smash.

He is, I believe, the first player to lose both of his RG finals by double faulting. No one will take that achievement from him.

Man, I know Rafa would have probably won either way, but I would have loved to see him hold at 5-5. Terrible way to lose. Even Roger went for out shots instead of double faulting on match points at FO
