That match close to the beginning with Andre LOL....... I imagine somewhere Agassi is still screaming over that, wow.

Dramatic Fed losses are 10x the quantity of Fed great escapes.
I can't see any IMPORTANT and GREAT Fed escape.
And I am a Fed fan, for the record.

Maybe that’s the problem. I'm a Fed fan as well and feel almost the same, but I’m sure Fed haters will remember many of those moments when they already had celebrated him being eliminated and then he still came back.

Examples are against Benneteau at Wimbledon or Monfils at US Open. He has come back from 0-2 more often than Nadal and Djokovic and also saved match points many times. But I agree that it tends to be forgotten because it wasn’t against the biggest names and because choking moments are generally more remembered I guess.

comeback against Rafs at the Open, down a break in the 5th should qualify as a great escape.
EDIT: Per @metsman 's gracious pointer, it should be referred to as the Aussie Open, not the Open.

It was either 2017 or 2018 IW against Coric but Fed somehow escaped a loss against an opponent who was clearly outplaying him.

Personally those are the best kind of escapes. Somehow you're getting your butt beat and yet you're just hanging around until some fateful moment you do something that changes the tide and you pull it off. Totally satisfying to win and crushing to lose.
