Players who always come close to winning ...

... important matches/matches against top-players but usually end up losing them.

There are quite a lot right now. Unfortunately I like the games of most of them.

Santangelo
Srebotnik
Peschke
Schiavone

Just to name a few.

Any more?

Hantuchova, always choking when she's up in the match. You won't find a better example, sadly...

Swiss champs.

Golovin.
(Her match vs momo comes to mind,
but I'm sure there were others. )

19. In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.
