An often forgotten 40-15 is Federer having set points in both sets in the 2012 London final against Novak. I think he had 2 set points in the first set and then 5-3 and then 5-4 40-15 in the second before losing 7-6 7-5. With all the 40-15s some are sadly forgotten!

There was also 6-5 40-0 on his serve in the 2007 Montreal final.

“I’m clearly very disappointed not to come through with the win,” Federer said. “After the chance in the second set, fighting back in the fourth, not to play a better fifth set, I have a lot of regrets here now. I think Gulbis did a good job of hanging around and clearly coming back in that second set was crucial for him.
“When you go deep in a fifth set, margins are so small that it’s not necessarily always the fitter guy who wins or always necessarily the better player who wins. You just have to create chances, and he did that definitely better in the fifth today than me.”

It´s not a one way street - Djokovic choked big time in USO 2007 final...had 6-5 40-0 on his serve in the 1st set and lost in the TB, had like two DFs there...
Then he had another set points in the second set, 6-5 15-40 on Federer´s serve and also lost in the TB.
Djokovic should have been 2-0 up against Federer in that match but instead he lost in straights.

It's interesting that even though Djokovic clearly leads Federer in every statistical metric, his fans clearly feel inferior and must create these nonsense threads. Almost like there is some kind of an imposter syndrome at work (as there should be).
OP is not a Djokovic fan :dunno:
