Grand Slam Big Mistake.

Think of a match that your favorite lost in a grand slam where if they had won, you think they would have won the Slam.

Personally, as a Venus fan, I can easily cite her 2004 Roland Garros Quarterfinal against Myskina as well as her 2005 US Open Quarterfinal against Kim.

For Serena, her 2001 Australian Open Quarterfinal against Hingis.
And of course, the 2003 French Open Semifinal against Justine.

Re: Grand Slam Big Mistake.

Serena at USO 04

If there had been a better umpire at her QF match, she might have won the match and the tournament. She would have had to face Dementieva in the semis and Kuznetsova in the final...

Re: Grand Slam Big Mistake.

Kim in Australian Open 2006... If she hadn't twisted her ankle against Mauresmo I think she would've won that match including the final against an ill Henin-Hardenne..... It would've been Kim's second straight GS win but no... another GS semi....

Kim Clijsters

World no.1 for 20 weeks

41 WTA Tour titles including 4 GS and 3 YEC

Australian Open '11 U.S. Open '05, '09, '10 WTA Championships '02, '03, '10

Re: Grand Slam Big Mistake.

For me it was the same as a few others Venus QF in USO 2005 and Serenas QF in USO 2004 although Serena to me lost unfairly and Venus just had a total breakdown in the 3rd set which was really weird i couldnt stop thinking about it for weeks after that.

Also if Serena had won her QF against Capriati in the 2004 FO she could've easily taken that 2nd french crown.

Re: Grand Slam Big Mistake.

Nastya lost a big chance at the AO 2005 (to play at least the final). She had reached the 2nd week without wasting energies and then she played an horrible match vs Dechy in the 4r.
She missed the chance to play against Patty in the QF and Lindsay in the SF. Davenport is really a great player but she had a lot of troubles to beat Dechy in the SF, that's why I think an in-form Nastya could have reached the final...

ANASTASIA MYSKINA ROLAND GARROS CHAMPION 2004
....losing only 14 games in the second week against V.Williams, Capriati and Dementieva

VALENTINO ROSSI - 9 TIMES WORLD CHAMPION - 106 WINS
KIMI RAIKKONEN - F1 WORLD CHAMPION 2007 - 20 WINS

Unfortunately, there is no "if", history is history, nobody can change anything of the past.

Re: Grand Slam Big Mistake.

Davenport USO 2004. Damn that would have been a fun final for Lindsay fans.

Davenport USO 1999.

Davenport Wimbledon 2001.

Ignoring the fave bit:

Capriati RG 2004 - the title was hers for the taking after the QF's.

Serena RG 2003.

Women's tennis sucks.

Go Rafa.

Re: Grand Slam Big Mistake.

Venus US Open 2005 (lost to K. Clijsters up a set and a break 2x)
Serena RG 2004 (lost to J. Capriati after the rain delay)
Serena US Open 2004 (lost to J. Capriati after 4 bad calls)

Really, don't even look at me...

Re: Grand Slam Big Mistake.

Serena Roland Garros, Wimbledon and US Open '04 - she had a chance to win all three of them. Venus definitely had a chance at the US Open in '05.

Serena Williams
21-Time Grand Slam Champion

6 AO ('03, '05, '07, '09, '10, '15) 3 FO ('02, '13, '15)
6 WBN ('02, '03, '09, '10, '12, '15) 6 USO ('99, '02, '08, '12, '13, '14)

Re: Grand Slam Big Mistake.

I'm going to have to say:

2004 US Open: If Lindsay Davenport had beaten Kuznetsova in the Semifinals she may have won the US Open.

2004 Wimbledon: If Lindsay Davenport had beaten Sharapova in the Semifinals she may have won Wimbledon.

Ana Ivanovic
