In the third set she had a 6-3 6-7 5-2 lead ... then 5-5 :help:

In the TB she had no chance :help:

Ouch.

Didnt Chanda Rubin beat Jana Navotna one year at the French Open after coming back from 5-0 40-0 in the second or final set? That has got to be the worst choke!

It's Szavay player who choke here... but somehow she regroup (with opponent help obviously) and won at end. If Szavay not win this "Underdog Party" tournament she very badly waste her time before hardcourt season and Olympics.

No Live scoring threads in GM.

It doesn't matter the match was nearly over.

Every live scoring thread can technically become a result thread if you eventually change the title, it doesn't mean you can start a scoring thread from 0-0 in every match in GM.

We have the tournament forums for a reason.

What is a "Choke" ?
When a player almost wins, loses match points and after that loses the match?
