Default Federer's 5 Set Losses in Grand Slams

Federer has lost 16 matches in Grand Slam semifinals and finals.

7 of those matches he lost in 5 sets. 43.75%

Do you think think this highlights Federer's lack of mental toughness in close matches? Or does it make you respect him for how tough he is to beat.

By comparison, Sampras lost 9 matches in Grand Slam semifinals and finals and 2 of those matches he lost in 5 sets. 22.22%

Nadal lost 8 matches in Grand Slam semifinals and finals and 2 of those matches he lost in 5 sets. 25.00%.

Lendl lost 20 matches in Grand Slam semifinals and finals and 5 of those matches he lost in 5 sets. 25.00%

Connors lost 23 matches in Grand Slam semifinals and finals and 5 of those matches he lost in 5 sets. 21.74%
