ATP World Tour: Djokovic – Federer USO semis top comeback of the year!!!

   Nole’s comeback in the US Open semi-final match against five-time champion Roger Federer is the top comeback of the 2011 season.
   The Swiss took the first two sets. He had a 178-1 record when winning the first two sets of a Grand Slam match - the only loss coming against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga at Wimbledon two months earlier.

   Nole had come back from a 0-2 sets deficit just once in his career - also at Wimbledon, in 2005, against Guillermo Garcia-Lopez, a victory that lifted him into the top 100 for the first time.
In September 2011, as the world no. 1, Nole roared back to force a decider with service breaks to start both the third and fourth sets. Roger regained the lead in the fifth, breaking Novak’s serve in the eight game and setting up two match points, a situation they’d found themselves in 2010. In that match, Nole had come up with two winners, down 4-5, 15/40, and had admitted afterwards:
“ To be honest I was just closing my eyes and hitting forehands as fast as I can on the match points. ”
