Which matches has your fave lost, where they fought their guts out, but were just beaten by a better player?

Mine:

2005 AO: Lindsay Davenport def Alicia Molik 6-4 4-6 9-7

Alicia couldn't have fought harder! She got rorted on a few occasions (the ace that was disallowed that would have put her 8-7 ahead) and had the whole counrty behind her, but Lindsay was just too good.

Serena losing to Maria at the YEC. She could have retired, but gave her all to try and win the match a nearly did.

Venus losing to Serena at the AO 2003 final. Venus really fought hard and fell just short.
