    Poll: Who had it worse?

    All three of the Big 3 have had their crack at #21. Federer first in 2019 at Wimbledon. Infamous 40-15. Nadal had the next crack in 2021 at RG. Four set beatdown at a place he owns. Novak got his chance in 2021 at the USO. Straight setted in a match that would have also given him a Grand Slam.
