Fed was broken 6 times: twice in sets 1, 3 and 4.

Set 1: at 3-3, lost serve after being up 30-0

Set 2: No breaks

Set 3: at 1-1, lost serve after being up 40-15
at 4-4, lost serve after being up 40-15 (and 30-0)

Set 4: at 2-4, lost serve after being up 30-0 (and 40-30)

So, 4 of the 6 breaks happened when Fed had a two point lead on his serve. In 3 cases, when he even had at least one game point.

One more amazing thing: Only in 1 of those 4 games did Roger win a point after Novak closed the lead. For example, at 1-1 and 40-15 for him in set 3, he didn't win any more points in that game.

Yeah, it was so annoying. So many 40-15's only to crumble. I really wished he had broken for 5-3 in the third, things could have been different

Amazing. He used to be(and still normally is) such a clutch player. It's obvious that winning #18 is extremely important for him.

Djokovic lost to Karlovic while being broken from 40-0 up. Who cares. Seriously, how many threads do we need about the break point conversion in this match? What enlightening detail did you think you could provide?
