Five Losses You Wish Your Fave Could Have Back

Ok, I'm pouting cause my fave lost today. Please share in my grief and name five losses your fave has suffered you wish she could have back. I've listed five below for mine.


2002 French Open 128 L Paola SUAREZ (ARG)6-2 5-7 1-6

I flew to Paris and was there to witness this in person. After a successful year in 2001 and a successful clay court season reaching quarters in Berlin and Rome, Sandrine gets a most horrible draw. She's in control of the match until 6-2, 5-4, 40-15, loses two match points and Paola runs away with the match in Sandrine's farewell appearance before leaving the tour to have a baby.

2001 WTA Tour Championships SF L Serena WILLIAMS (USA)3-6 0-6 After cutting down Amelie and Jennifer (to end Jen's chances of winding up as year end Number One) Sandrine ran out of steam and Serena wins the last nine games of the match. Little did Sandrine know that Lindsay would retire after injuring herself on the last point of her SF against Kim. Sandrine effectively would have taken the trophy home had she won this match.

2001 French Open 16 L Martina HINGIS (SUI)1-6 6-2 2-6

Sandrine looks to end a 0-13 mark against Martina in front of the home crowd. She gets whitewashed in the first set (someone actualy throws an egg on the court) but battles back to the delight of the partisan crowd to take the second set. Martina plays a dazzling third set for the victory.

1997 Wimbledon 16 L Nathalie TAUZIAT (FRA)6-4 5-7 10-12

After upsetting Monica then World Number Two in the third round Sandrine falls to countrywoman Nathalie in three grueling sets. I'm sure this one hurt.

1997 US Open QF L Venus Williams (USA) 5-7, 5-7

The closest Sandrine came to making a Grand Slam semifinal.

Serena:
L to Justine SF RG 2003. Man, man, man....if she wins that match, she wins the GRAND SLAM for sure!
L to Martina H QF Oz open 2001. Another of those collapses by Serena. Hated her during those years. Couldn´t close out a match to safe her life.
L to Jennifer QF wimbledon 2001. Yet another collapse....really dissapointing, because Venus was ready to be brought down even that year.
L to Venus SF wimbledon 2000. Shame that one of the most dominating runs at Wimbledon EVER had to end like that.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

Kristina Brandi

1998 - Pattaya - Loss to Degucis in the SM, definitely could have won the whole thing.
1999 - Wimbledon - Loss to Grande in the 1st Round, after winning 's-Hertogenbosch.
2000 - Aussie or Wimbledon - Losses in the 4th round, just so that she reached a GS QF.
2001 - Hobart - The injury that killed her Rise In The Rankings!
2004 - Any 1 of her losses, I would love to turn her loss at Hobart into a TITLE.



TT Singles: 2014 SF: Bogota, New Braunfels. 2013 F: Las Vegas, SF: Orlando, Sibenik.
TT Doubles: 2014 W: Trnava w PinkTape. 2013 W: St Martin, Orlando, Sibenik, Charlottesville, Nantes-YEC all w Soliloque; Lexington w DJDVD.

i'd DEFINITELY add monica's "loss" to steffi graf in the 92 wimbledon final. that's the only match she ever played where she didn't want to play her own game. i bet she regrets it big time, as it's a big gap in her trophy case.

2002 QF final loss to Callens in Hawaii. She won the 1st set and lost the second 5-7. She didnt win another game

2003 SF loss to Zvonereva at Bol. Had she won this is would have been her final.

2003 2nd round loss to Schaul at US Open. She led 3-1 in the third and lost it 3-6.

2004 QF loss to Linetskaya in Dothan. Because I was there and saw her loose

2004 2nd round loss to Venus Williams in Family Circle cup. She led a set and 3-0. Would have been her biggest win to date.
