It showed up fully in the match today, worst serving he had most of
the sets, gifting breaks to Nadal, unable to break when he had too
many chances.

and when he got the fifth set, and he knew that there is only one set
to reach the 14th slam, he fully collapsed.


For sure, Nadal plays a big role as well by his fighting and good
play.

Fed also said he choked the first time he had a chance to get to #1.
That was one of only 2 losses
in his career to Roddick.

Good point. The closer you get to your goal, the
most pressure and stress.....
