In the 2008 Tennis Masters Cup, Roger Federer found himself down 4-5 against Andy Murray in the final set of their round robin match - a win for either would put them in first place in their group’s standings and through to the semifinals. A few weeks earlier Federer had cited a lower back injury forcing him to withdraw from the Paris Masters, which he carried into the tournament. Throughout the match Federer required three medicals time outs, and at one point needed to sit down in the linesperson’s chair as he awaited his opponents serve; organisers had told a driver to get Federer’s car ready because they expected him to retire. He went on to save seven match points in his ten-deuce service game, before Murray broke back to win 4-6 7-6(3) 7-5. After the match, when asked about the effect of the injury Federer responded, “I don’t quit once I step on court.” [x]
