If it's a good match I will, but then I usually stop around the time they begin to lose

Yes, I watched the Masha vs. Kim (US Open 05) match many times! But I watched only at 5-6 till the end of the set and in the third at 0-4..

Nastya vs. JHH, Athens 2004

I rarely watch the last few points though. That's just traumatic.

Re: Do you ever re-watch a match that your favourite lost?

Yes I do, for example today I watched back by coincedence Venus vs. Davenport WTA Stanford 2004 Final final set. High quality, I also watched back Serena vs. Mauresmo to actually see in what kind of condition Serena played that match. Ehmmmm I also saw one time Serena vs. Capriati 2004 UsOpen quarterfinal back.

Re: Do you ever re-watch a match that your favourite lost?

uhm yeah i sometimes watch the Australian Open Semi Maria-Serena again. Drama, grunting(or should i say screaming), very intense and great Rallies. It gets harder to watch at the end though.

Maria Sharapova

Kvitova Azarenka Muguruza Bencic Bacsinszky

Re: Do you ever re-watch a match that your favourite lost?

Yes, I have re-watched Nastya's matches against JHH Athens '04, Serena YEC '04, Maria YEC '04 and Mauresmo Wimbledon '05.
There are other matches lost by Nastya that I have taped but I have never re-watched because it would be too frustrating (for example Berlin and RG '05 and the match against Patty at the AO this year).

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

Re: Do you ever re-watch a match that your favourite lost?

Nope...can't although I do watch portions of some of them. Like the forehand Serena hit down JHH's throat @ 2003 FO, but I can't watch the 3rd set past 4-2.

Actually the only losses I can swallow are the ones to Vee.

And I watch portions of the 2004 USO QF, but won't even TOUCH W 2004 F, YEC 2004 F, or W 2005 3rd....the really bad ones

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Serena.
