Chanda Rubin - worst choke ever ?

Oh my ... She was served a Championship semifinal on a silverplate and chokes it away in the worst possible manner.

Chanda, you are nice and everything, but this is just

Benny Simms (sp?) will beat her up if she loses this.

Yep! All of sudden she stopped being agressive and stuff!

No, but you are certainly a contender for stupidest poster ever.

Nah...I can think of other stupid matches (US Open Semis comes to mind...along with the AO semis and Philly semis...hmmm, seems to be a conspiracy against semi-finalists here ).

Go Dominique, I like you but please delete this. it is mean. many players have choked many times and chanda also has many great comebacks under her belt in her career. chanda is just a drama queen just like Alyona. Also, let's admit that Alyona came on fire and started moving chanda a lot and alyona just stopped missing.

Hello, this isn't serious.

But I would be surpised if that is not exactly what Chanda will be thinking of herself after losing the match.

Every player chokes at times. Chanda just waited on Dementieva to give it to her rather than win it. Poor Chanda.

Beat'em down Ms Williams, beat'em down!

It can happen to anyone...so no need to call her names now.

It has to be Chanda's worst choke ever. Or at least her most significant. :-( I am so sad.

Poor Chanda....

but.. the fact is that when Elena was down on the second set, she all of a sudden starterd playing much better. Making very few errors, hitting harder and just being extremely agressive. She probably said to herself "what a heck, I'm out of here, so let's have fun", and she just started playing better.

Poor Chanda felt the pressure and got tight.
