Matches in which a player wasted MP in 2nd set, but still won!

To waste a match point in the second set and still win the match is a sign of mental toughness and fighting spirit. Do you remember matches in which it happened? Here are the ones I recall:

-2000 Roland Garros SF Pierce def. Hingis 6-4, 5-7, 6-2 (1 MP)
-2001 Roland Garros QF Capriati def. S. Williams 6-2, 5-7, 6-2
-2001 Toronto F S. Williams def. Capriati 6-1, 6-7, 6-3
-2001 US Open QF S. Williams def. Davenport 6-3, 6-7, 7-5
-2005 US Open SF Clijsters def. Sharapova 6-2, 6-7, 6-3 (5 MPs)

Add the other ones you remember so we can make a list!

I guess you mean lose the second set after having match point?

Venus def Henin 2001 New Haven 6-3, 5-7, 6-2 wasted match point at 6-3, 5-3 40-30 on Justine's serve.

Vaidisova against Jackson in Memphis! Nicole had 3 or 4 match points in the second, before winning in the third!
