Would you rather your fav suffer an upset loss or lose to your most disliked player?

random stuff here

if either one of them had to happen, would you rather your fav player lose to a much lower ranked player that no one would ever have predicted her to lose to, or lose to a player whom you dislike/hate the most?

Re: Would you rather your fav suffer an upset loss or lose to your most disliked play

I'd rather my favorite player lose in the final to my most disliked player than lose opening round, only if it's a slam though. A regular tour event, I'd rather have the upset

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

Everytime Serena looses it's an upset so

Upset loss over losing the hated player.

Whenever Lindsay would lose to Saint Waffles I wanted to punch small animals.

I don't hate any player except Huber so I know my girls would school her in a singles match and if she beats them at doubles I just say Raymond carried her

Re: Would you rather your fav suffer an upset loss or lose to your most disliked play

I am afraid my Petra is going to beat Bartoli (whom I don't mind at all) and lose to Pova (whom I hate). If that's the case, I'd rather she lose to Bartoli.

"I really have friends on the tour, and I'm really happy for it. ...I remember when I was young and someone told my father that I'm too nice for tennis. So I'm just glad that I can be nice off the court and fighting on the court." — Petra Kvitova, May 8, 2005

The most horrible result would be Vika losing to Cibulkova, loss against most disliked and an upset so can't answer.

Re: Would you rather your fav suffer an upset loss or lose to your most disliked play

I get angry whenever my favs lose just because they played a sh*tty match and that's usually when upsets happen. If my fav plays well but the opponent plays better on that given day I can live with it, no matter if it's a lower ranked player who would cause the upset or an opponent who I dislike.

Upset loss to random scrub. Losing to hated player - there's nothing worse.
