After that ATP Finals SF 2020 match result for Domi, are there any matches posters here remember, that they lead well, had MPs in a match finishing game, only to meltdown, but then recover later on and actually win it, because usually players don't recover from such loss of opportunity, as they're typically mentally fatigued.

I remembered the famous, or infamous, match between Leonardo Mayer and Joao Souza in the Davis Cup between Argentina and Brazil, where Mayer was leading 2-0 Sets only for Souza to recover. Souza then was actually serving for the match in the 5th, but then Mayer broke back and the legend of the longest singles Davis Cup match got fulfilled. I watched that on stream and it was insane seeing who will break down first. Leo was 29th at that time -- his best ranking I think -- so losing against someone lower ranked could've been really devastating for him.

This was a promising topic but then it revolved around two of the many dozen anonymous south american clay courters that nobody cares about. By the way one is banned for life for match fixing. :ROFLMAO:

Rogie has never done this. Any time he chokes a match you just know he has no chance of recovering and turning it back around. He simply doesn’t have the mental strength to put the choke behind him and resigns himself to yet another devastating defeat

Therefore monfed called him Roger Loserer last year after the WB final.

The one that immediately springs to mind is the Djokovic/Federer Wimbledon final in 2014. Djokovic served for the match in the 4th set only to lose it, then regrouped to win the deciding set.

Federer/Nadal in 2008 is another example

This post has aged very badly following the events of today.
