I do not. Its too painfull to watch.

The only lost I have on tape is Ree at the Tour Champs and of course Kimmy losing to both sisters in grand slams. I haven't watched the tour champs final since it aired. I like both players so I could accept the result which is probably why I have it on tape still.

If it was just a heartbreaking-why-did-you-lose-to-this-player loss, I would tape over it.

Williams x2 Clijsters Golovin Ivanovic Li Jackson
Federer Blake Fish Roddick Grosjean Bryans x2

I don;t really tape tennis matches unless they are on at a riduclous time. I still have Kimmy beating Serena somewhere, I also taped the Scottsdale final, and numerous Indian Wells matches to study for my media studies research study.

I don´t tape any tennis matches either... just when there is an exciting one on TV and I´m not able to watch it due to work but afterwards I am most likely to use the tapes to tape other stuff on them again.

Nobody´s perfect ... but me.

Yes, I have every match of Elena Bovina singles match I can possibly get... and there's quite a few losses in there.

I don't of Monica , because it hurts when she loses.

However, I have tapes of Miss Tatiana Panova losing becuase she is hardly ever shown on tv; I have a few tapes of her winning, of course, I saw her beat Anna K and JenCap.

if it was a good tough match then I keep it (but sometimes erase the last games ) I also record and then keep all the matches with my favourites when they win and I'm now running out of space, but I just can't erase anything

I won't tape over Hingis/Venus 2000 US Open semis. As much as that loss hurt, it was a classic. I have Seles/Venus from US Open 2002. Not worth watching, but I won't tape over it.

FUCK YOU, SEWTA.

I have many of Amelie's matches. Because we don't get great coverage of her here in the States I depend on my French/British friends to send me tapes. I value each and every one of them. Just to see her play is a joy for me and when she's beaten an opponent she's lost to previously, it just makes it that much better for me. Then I can see what she's done differently and compare the two matches.

Amélie Mauresmo, 2009 GDF Suez, 2007 Proximus Diamond Games, 2006 World No. 1 ,Wimbledon Champion, Proximus Diamond Games, Gaz, Australian Open, 2005 YEC, Advanta Chamionships, Italian Open, Proximus Diamond Games, 2004 World No. 1, Advanta Championships, Generali Linz, Rogers Cup, Italian Open, German Open, 2003 J&S Cup, Advanta Championships, 2002 Rogers AT&T Cup, Dubai Open, 2001 Gaz, Nice, Amelia Island, and Eurocard Ladies German Open, 2000 Adidas International, and 1999 Bratislava Champion

There's a fine line between love and hate; that line is called family!

No one does things exactly the way I want them to. No one ever has. It’s a problem they have!

AZARENKA!

Generally, I don't keep losses, unless it's an historic / emotional match in Monica's career (loss to Steffi in '95 US Open, loss to ASV in '98 RG, etc.).

I generally only keep key wins, also, such as the victory over Venus in '02 Oz and over Lindsay late last year.
