The first option. The second would make me feel so gross that I have wasted many chances to win the match. I would just feel so devastated that after working so hard, I lost.

the second option if its a big match like a slm final...cos being white washed under big match conditions can break a player...

if its a small match whod wanna go thru all that effort only to lose? <img src="tongue.gif" border="0"> so 6-3 6-1 loss is more suited

I dont want them both. I want to win!!!!!<br />For me they are just the same. LOSS!!!!

Dec 24th, 2001, 02:17 PM
I'd take losing 6-1 6-3 cause either way its a loss and I don't want to waste so much time and energy losing 12-10 in the third set. I'd be so mad with myself too that I lost so narrowly, in a nut shell to spare myself excessive emotion, 6-1 6-3 is the way to go.

Like StevenM said, in grand slams I would chose the 10-12 loss like Kim Clijsters has at RG.<br />I think she would be more mad at herself if she had lost 6-1 6-3.

Definitely 6-1 6-3

Dec 24th, 2001, 02:44 PM
Can I pick another option? <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

I'd prefer 12-10 cos then at least I knew I wasn't totally crap.

Dec 24th, 2001, 03:39 PM
I would choose the 6:1 6:3 because then I could make up a good excuse what was wrong with me but when I lose 12:10 then it`s harder because I won so many games, I hate losing any way though

I'd hate to lose either but I think i'd rather lose the 6-1, 6-3 actually. I think that when I lose a match like that I don't really get so down on myself, because it's usually a case of nothing working for me. Everyone has their days like that. But to be so close, like a 12-10 loss at a slam, I would be emotionally distraught I think, lol. The lopsided score I'd get over quicker.

i'd prefer 10-12 cos i knew that i was close, and a bit more work would get me the win...

plus others wouldn't see me as a pushover, might get me a bit of respect from people who previously didn't have any for me, might get me a few fans for my determination......

and i would have gotten a good workout too hehe.

me too... 12/10... I would hate to be crushed
