Martina: A Champion's Most Embarassing Match
Sorry, I have posted on the VenusvMartina match already, but I have just seen on Eurosport the replay of the last part of the match, and I HAD to post again as I hadn't seen it being at college and had posted based on reports on here.
I can't believe that Martina lost this match. She didn't have a hint of injury. Venus was nearly crippled with agony at several points in the match. All credit to Venus. What an incredible inner strength she has. I had alway been a mild fan of Venus but now I bow down and kiss the hem of her skirt.
But Martina, I am stunned. This is for me the most embarassing loss I have seen by any player in such a big match. It's worse than the 99 loss to Steffi at Roland Garros which could be excused for various reasons. But this is simply HUMILIATING. I don't see how Martina can face Venus again on court. I really don't think she can do it again. And now every player knows they can beat her no matter what.
Which made me think. Is this Martina's most embarassing loss? And what are the most embarassing losses by Champions when they weren't injured? I can't think of any to come near this one. It is AWFUL!
A new Venus mega fan is born! Venus deserves a medal. If I have criticised her before I take it all back. I was wrong. And I was wrong about the glory of Martina's comeback.
