I dont think Del Potro choked. He wasnt close to winning either the 4th or 5th sets and you have to be in a winning position to choke. Federer played much better those 2 sets, and Del Potro had put so much energy into all this shots the first 3 sets it would have been impossible to avoid a dropoff. The 2nd set he never had an edge, it was narrow all the way. It may seem he deserved to win dominating the first 3 sets overall but the scoring system in tennis doesnt neccessarily pan out that way.
