Tennis Player's Worst NIGHTMARE?

Put these circumstances in order from what you think would be a tennis player’s least to worst nightmare. Elaborate about your choices if you want to
a) Dropping and hence breaking the trophy during the awards ceremony
b) Accidently injuring a ball kid
c) Inability to speech English
d) Catching a cold prior to a Grandslam
e) Forgetting to shake hands at the end of a match
f) Getting media attention for the wrong reasons
g) Getting little sponsorship
h) Facing their ultimate rival in a Grandslam final
i) Getting booed by the crowd
j) Losing in the first round at a home tournament
k) Falling over on court in an embarrassing way
l) Getting a minor injury

Elena Dementieva, Maria Sharapova, Samantha Stosur

Didn't Jelena's car break down once because it ran out of gas on her way to the AO?

Re: Tennis Player's Worst NIGHTMARE?

What happened to Novotna in her Wimbledon final against Graf: Having a huge lead in a slam final, it looks impossible that you will lose, but then point after point, game after game you keep on choking away that lead and you end up losing in the end.

I think it was in the US, possibly IW. Yeah, and other players would just drive by without stopping.
