Matches You Regret NOT Watching

What are some matches you regret not being able to watch on television?

Let them eat cake.

Venus vs. Maria. I saw like the last 2 games and it was AWESOME tennis, now i wish i would have watched it all...

How should you be? You should be like a rocky promontory against which the restless surf continuously pounds.
It stands fast while the churning sea is lulled to sleep at its feet. I hear you say,
"How unlucky that this should happen to me."
But not at all.
Perhaps say instead how lucky I am that I am not broken by what has happened,
and I am not afraid of what is about to happen.

Any match with Agassi or Roddick. On the women's side any match with Petrova or Shaughnessy I never regret NOT seeing.

i love doubles.

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.

Yeah, I regret not having been able to watch many doubles matches too. I also regret not having been able to go and watch Goran Ivanisevic win his Wimbledon title live. I've since seen the match on video, but I wish so much I had been there, esp. since it was played on the final Monday so I really could have been there if I had been at home at the time!

Vivi & Conchita & Patricia & Paola 2004 Olympic Silver & Bronze medalists, Vivi & Anabel 2008 Olympic Silver medalists - congratulations!

With school and travelling, I've really missed some of the best ones.

2002 AO final Capriati def. Hingis: only saw the end; I went out on Friday night instead
2003 AO semi Serena def. Clijsters: I was really busy with school and didn't have a TV
2004 USO semi Henin-Hardenne def. Capriati: I really should have watched it.

For example:

M. Hingis vs. J. Capriati 2002 AUS Final - I never saw this live, and it was such an amazing match!

Serena - Lindsay USO 1999

Venus - M. Hingis 1998 Miami SF

Serena - J. Capriati 2002 French open SF

Venus - Justine Amelia Island Final, Venus trailing 2-6 0-4 and Venus won

Venus - Lindsay New Haven 2001 F

Ser ena the best and coolest in the world along with this person: Venus Williams


Vee and Ree A fan since I was eight years old, and always supporting you
