Championship Matches-New Result

This is a thread for fun
If you could be the tennis god an go back and change the outcome
Of one tennis championship match. Which match would you
Change the result for and why?


For me I would pick the 1991 Wimbledon Championships
I believe if Sabatini had defeated Graf in that match
her career would have been so much bigger than it was

On a more current note, i would have Maria Sharapova winning
Miami in 2013. It was her 5th final in Miami, still hadn't beaten Serena in 9 years, and captured
the first set 6/4.

Have fun. Thanks for your posts :-)

Re: Championship Matches-New Result

In agreement on the 1991 Ladies singles final at the Championships.

1994 RG final. But, that's mostly due to the fact that I had so much money coming my way had Mary won (I was a Mary fan though)

Although this is not really changing the result (though I didn't care who won) but, if I could have stopped Anna Kournikova falling and preventing the torn ligament in right thumb she suffered during her Eastbourne QF victory against Steffi Graf, it would be this. For me this precipitated towards the downfall in her career.

Re: Championship Matches-New Result

French Open 2001. Clijsters def. Capriati 14-12

We would have seen a whole different Kim mentally wise imo.

Re: Championship Matches-New Result

Simo winning the FO over Maria 4-6 7-6 7-5 this year.

And going back in history, Kim defeating Justine in the 2004 AO final, 3-6 6-4 9-7 or ASV beating Graf in the 1996 FO finals 8-6 in the third.

Re: Championship Matches-New Result

Henin to beat Bartoli in Wimbledon semi final 2007. Then we would have seen how Henin would have fared against a peak Venus Williams on grass at Wimbledon. Maybe Henin would have won all 4 Grand Slam tournaments. The opportunity never came again.

Re: Championship Matches-New Result

Conchita d Pierce FO 2000
but then Mary would have never won the FO either...


so..maybe AO 98 Hingis-Martinez but meh..doesn't have the same flavour

oh wait, in a perfect world, I'd hence change the FO 94 final result too

in other words, Pierce beat the wrong Spanish in a FO final

also: Koukalova d Srebotnik in Portoroz
I wanted Kata to win her home tournament ad she failed twice in the final

Conchita MARTINEZ-Mary PIERCE-Lindsay DAVENPORT-Martina HINGIS-Serena WILLIAMS- and new legend Monica PUIG
Kata Srebotnik - Anabel Medina-Garrigues - Arantxa Parra-Santonja
Garbiñe Muguruza- Caroline Garcia- Polona Hercog- Kimiko DK - Eleni Daniilidou ...

Re: Championship Matches-New Result

Hingis def. Majoli RG97 and makes the Grand Slam in both singles & Doubles

This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.
