If you could change a single point in tennis history, what would you change?

For me it would be:

Nathalie Dechy wins the point at 6-2 6-6 (5-5) to make it 6-5 in the tb against Lindsay Davenport in the SF of the AO 2005

Lindsay won the match 2-6 7-6(5) 6-4.

one of the two MP's Kim had against Serena in the AO 2003 semi final
or French Open Final 2001, Kim vs Capriati, when it was 30-30 all on Capriati's serve in the final set and Kim could have come on match point
