The first option. The second would make me feel so gross that I have wasted many chances to win the match. I would just feel so devastated that after working so hard, I lost.

the second option if its a big match like a slm final...cos being white washed under big match conditions can break a player...

if its a small match whod wanna go thru all that effort only to lose? <img src="tongue.gif" border="0"> so 6-3 6-1 loss is more suited

I'd take losing 6-1 6-3 cause either way its a loss and I don't want to waste so much time and energy losing 12-10 in the third set. I'd be so mad with myself too that I lost so narrowly, in a nut shell to spare myself excessive emotion, 6-1 6-3 is the way to go.

I'm so happy because today I found my friends, inside my head.

I'm so ugly but thats ok 'cause so are you.

I am a sufficiently accomplished Legilimens to know when I am being lied to

Shania and Serena! My two fav babes! You gals rock. Keep it coming!! Get well Serena honey!

Like StevenM said, in grand slams I would chose the 10-12 loss like Kim Clijsters has at RG.<br />I think she would be more mad at herself if she had lost 6-1 6-3.

Can I pick another option? <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

I'd prefer 12-10 cos then at least I knew I wasn't totally crap.

and where they produce desolation, they call it peace

I would choose the 6:1 6:3 because then I could make up a good excuse what was wrong with me but when I lose 12:10 then it`s harder because I won so many games, I hate losing any way though

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

I'd hate to lose either but I think i'd rather lose the 6-1, 6-3 actually. I think that when I lose a match like that I don't really get so down on myself, because it's usually a case of nothing working for me. Everyone has their days like that. But to be so close, like a 12-10 loss at a slam, I would be emotionally distraught I think, lol. The lopsided score I'd get over quicker.

"Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But he loves you."

i'd prefer 10-12 cos i knew that i was close, and a bit more work would get me the win...

plus others wouldn't see me as a pushover, might get me a bit of respect from people who previously didn't have any for me, might get me a few fans for my determination......

and i would have gotten a good workout too hehe.
