    Who has SAVED the most match points out of Fed, Rafa, Novak and Murray?

    I suspect it would be Fed since he's been playing longer.

    I do recall that Federer saved some insane number of match points (I think 7) in the round robin of the Masters Cup one year against Murray. He lost the match in the end however.

    Imagine how Draper is feeling now about not being able to add that victory to his resume. Each Federer's title must hurt Draper even more than veroniquem.
