Has anyone ever lost a match with more than +14 point differential?

Or is this another (very unfortunate) record Federer has racked up?

Man, I'm exhausted. What a ****ing match. What a heartbreak.
 
Check our Mandlikova beating Navratilova 7-6, 1-6, 7-6 in the US Open final in 1985. That might exceed it or be close.

It's all about sets - obviously. I remember some sports broadcast years ago having tennis scores on the scrolling ticker that only showed number of sets won, e.g., Graf def. Sabatini 2-1. I thought it was odd; it tells you little about the match. On the other hand, it tells you all that's really important. Tennis is a heck of a scoring system. Winning points doesn't matter unless you can combine them for games. Winning games is meaningless unless you can combine them to win sets.

Martina won 5 more points than Hana https://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/index.php?threads/stats-for-1985-uso-final-mandlikova-navratilova.342520/

I have stats for most grand slam finals, nothing really comes close to
this.

Roddick was +24 vs Johansson in his USO 2004 QF loss.

Absolute legend of the game.
it will happen when tie breaks are involved. ie.. tie breaks reset it all, so u can bottle the tiebreak and still lose even though you've done better outside the tiebreak

Mahut & Roddick +24 as has been mentioned.

But if you dig deep enough I have a feeling there are bigger disparities from the old days of no tiebreaks. With a strong server holding his games easier than his opponent.

Like 67 Wimbledon 2nd Round, Roche vs. Richey

6-3, 6-3, 17-19, 12-14, 3-6 as Roche had a strong serve.

I recall seeing something along the lines of a 6-0, 8-10, 5-7, 6-1, 7-9 type scoreline where I'd love to know the stats.
