Nice thread, even if your definition of a choke is a bit broad for my liking

Thanks

What do you mean exactly with my definition of a choke? I guess that missing 1 MP in a 3rd set tiebreaker which goes past 6-all can't really be called a choke, is that what you mean?

I wouldn't call missing a MP when receiving a choke for starters, unless it was a clear case of e.g. failing to put away a weak second serve. And even when serving on MP, opponents sometimes come up with an amazing return to save the point. A choke is the tennis equivalent of shooting wide from straight in front of an open goal. This doesn't always have to involve MPs btw: someone could hit 4 DFs while serving for the match without ever having had a MP.

But this is just a minor quibble, the lists are really interesting, and you also list the players who have saved the most MPs, which is really cool as well.

Re: The 2012 WTA Matchpoint chokes

We found a winner.

It had to be a Romanian.

At what scoreline did they have matchpoints? I need to add that as well. And how many MP's too.

Re: The 2012 WTA Matchpoint chokes

I thought this thread used to be in GM, no? How come?

You can add eastbourne's final today Paszek def Kerber 5-7, 6-3, 7-5 (5 Mps saved)

Re: The 2012 WTA Matchpoint chokes

I added a new stat, players who saved MP's in consecutive matches

Also Wozniacki's choke updated.
