Holding the Fort
Compiled by whatthefat
--*--

When it comes to the greatest tournament performances of all time, often there has been a fly in the ointment. While the man on fire has blitzed the field, one player has managed to survive the onslaught. Did they just strike it lucky - was the in-form player momentarily taking their foot off the pedal? Or did they somehow raise their game in a way that the others couldn't?
