Andy's statistics in this area are fantastic, only behind Djokovic. Nice :cool: The only disappointment is that Shanghai final. That really brings it down a bit.

Roger is surprisingly bad in this department. I suppose you can't be the GOAT at everything :shrug:

Wait so Murray saved 5 match points against the same guy in consecutive tournament finals? Robredo must’ve been devastated even though they were just 250s

Very interesting.

But i think a distinction between serving and returning while having/facing matchpoints is needed to get the real picture. Waste matchpoints when serving is the true crime.

Well, at least part of the difference is surely explained by how more likely are Tie Breaks in a Federer Match.

It's pretty easy to have a match point in a tie break and then lose the match.

So for the first time ever there are two entries by one player from the same tournament, and consecutive matches at that. Fed is the statto's dream.
