Today was the Wimbeldon Tennis finals. Federer versus Roddick. Roddick was down 2 sets to 1 but was making a comeback and had 6 break points, any one of which would have given him a distinct advantage in the set and then match. Roddick lost every one of them. After the last one he basically gave up. He lost the next 12 points in a row and lost the match.
You could see it on his face. He just gave up after losing that last break point. Its a shame too, because Federer was up against the ropes. He was rattled that Roddick was pressuring him so much on his serve. Roddick could have won.
