The Mother of all Chokes: watch here!

Starting at 4:35, Jana leading 4-1 40-30 in the final set.
You should watch the earlier points too though because Jana played some excellent points there.

And afterwards she claimed that she was NOT nervous.

Ahh Jana, she had used to have bad luck before that 1998 triumph, for which I am grateful.

When she cried on the court after that loss, it was the most emotional I've ever seen any tennis player, I loved watching Jana Novotna

Noooo GoDominique, I hate that match, it's a torture for me.
Graf-Novotna Wimbledon 1993 (I was only 10 y.o. but I remember everything) and JHH-Nastya Athens 2004 are my 2 biggest tennis-nightmares.

It wasn't that bad. OK she played a few poor points in the 4-1 game, but she got it together and got a break point in the very next game, only to have Steffi hit a brilliant backhand pass. That was when she broke down completely. She was still up a break then.

Who cares about the 93 final when we've got the 98 one? Jana.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

I'm tempted to click, but I simply cannot watch.

The mother of all chokes, absolutely.

I've never seen that before, how awful for Jana. I bet she played absolutely amazing grass court tennis in that second set.

She won it once, at least.

Women's tennis sucks.

Go Rafa.
