What scoreline do you absolutely hate the MOST?

This thread might have been made ages ago, but I'm just curious. This is more of a "that scoreline just looks WRONG."

To me the scoreline of 75 64 is atrocious looking. It makes me cringe when players win/lose by this scoreline.

Also, 76 16 61

Re: What scoreline do you absolutely hate the MOST?

Any match when the first set is close but the next is a total beatdown, like 76 61 or something. It just suggests that a player has given up, even if that isn't the case.

What's wrong with 75 64?

I dislike very one-sided matches too like 6-2 6-1 but that's only because they're usually boring - not a scoreline problem as such.

Is the product you manufacture found in your kitchen?

Re: What scoreline do you absolutely hate the MOST?

I hate the 6-3 6-3, 6-4 6-2 and 7-5 6-0 scores

And I love the 7-5 7-5, 7-5 7-6, 7-5 5-7 6-4, 6-4 6-4, 7-6 1-6 6-3.

Re: What scoreline do you absolutely hate the MOST?

Thank you Vika

I find scorelines like 6-3 1-6 6-4 to be ugly. Anything where the numbers repeat/reverse is a better looking scoreline (7-5 5-7 7-5, etc.) And of course I facepalm when I see those "Slava scorelines" of 6-1 x-6 y-6

Re: What scoreline do you absolutely hate the MOST?

Any scoreline where my favorite lost
In all seriousness, there is nothing wrong with any scoreline. They will either show big advantage on one side, or bumps in performance on either side, even match up, etc. Sometimes they don't reflect the impression of superiority on the court at all. I can't say that any scorelines makes me cringe.

The best of luck to all tennis players; The game is on!

P.S.Well,... special luck to Agnieszka Radwanska, Marta Domachowska, Daniela Hantuchova, Urszula Radwanska
Bally, Rest In Peace!

7-5 7-5 , because it basically almost means they were so close and the person couldn't hold serve when it counted

The scoreline just bothers me. It doesn't flow well at all in my eyes. It's hard to explain. It may be my OCD I'm not sure.

For instance I was so happy last year in Dallas when JJ beat Dellacqua in the SFs. But the scoreline was 75 64 and it looked so odd

Re: What scoreline do you absolutely hate the MOST?

7-6 6-0 and 7-5 7-5.

One means the losing player basically tanked the 2nd set while the other means she didn't learn anything from the first set.

Well, it does looks odd when the scoreline suggests that JJ won.
