Do you get embarrassed for players when they think they've already won?

Like on match point they dont hear they shot called out and they go all crazy and pump their fist, and then they realize they havent won yet...i get for them...

I think Lleyton Hewitt did that once i dont remember what match though, but he didnt hear his shot called out and he screamed and pumped his fist (i think he also fell on his knees too!), and everyone was all looking at him weird...the funniest thing about that match was that he almost lost the set after that, and if he would've lost, i would've be more for him

Does anyone remember other match points like that??

I remember the Nasdaq ladies final a couple of years ago with Venus and Jennifer. Jennifer thought she had won and they even showed her father's excited face, till it turned out the ball was called out or in (don't remeber, but Venus won that point and came back to win the match)

No. I actually feel bad for players to have to go through that emotional rollercoaster. I think it could totally mess them up. I remember that Venus-Jenn match. Stefano went crazy...only to be told it was out.

i forgot which match this was, but i remeber mary pierce quite quivering and in tears as she stuggled through several match points over davenport. davenport eventually fought it all and won the watch.

I think this usuallyhappens on final matches

i noe in the 98 us open sf, martina was playing jana
and she came back from 1-4 down in the 3rd to 5-4 and had a mp

then she hit the ball out, but she thought it was in
and was already running happily to the net to shake hands

i wasnt embarassed because i thought the ball was in too

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.
