Oct 20th, 2009, 06:37 AM
Mine was Daniela v. Ana AO 2008 :sobbing:

Thirded. Thinking back now, I had such little faith in Daniela. Once she lost that second set I knew it was over. :lol:

Oct 20th, 2009, 06:47 AM
while it was also the most exciting match-up for me , that FO final in 2000 was the toughest match to watch cpz one of my two all-time faves was to lose in the final of my fave Slam and would barely have another chance at the trophy . :awww:

Matevzic vs Venus, Athens Olympics, 2nd round.

When it was pretty obvious Maja's injury would prevent her from achieving more in her way too short career:sad:. At that shape and lack of any kind of serious trainings it was unbelievable that she was able to win her first round match.

The Final That Must Not Be Named.

Although calling that a tennis match is something of a misnomer. Lena was as absent as her bangs.

1. Graf def. Sanchez-Vicario Wimbledon 1995

This one hurt a lot, because Arantxa really played a great match, one of my favourite finals of all-time and yet also my most heartbreaking because both players really deserved to win that final with the effort they gave. Arantxa had a lot to be proud of, making the final of Wimbledon and pushing Graf, when many people never expected she would pose such a serious threat on grass.

2. Sanchez-Vicario def. Habsudova Roland Garros 1996

My top 2 favourite players of all time, pitted against each other in the QF. For Karina it would be her first and only run, and during that time she had really reached the peak of her form in her career. It was perhaps the only time I can think of where I was equally cheering the success of Arantxa's opponent. Was very tough to see either of them lose in such an epic match, and it was also difficult because this match was the infamous match where the crown turned on Arantxa and booed her for moonball tactics late in the match.

Oct 20th, 2009, 02:19 PM
JJ 06 USO against henin 6-4 4-2* 40-0 and lost 10 straight games

Oct 20th, 2009, 03:16 PM
Don't think that anything can ever beat Novotna's loss to Graf at Wimbly.

Oct 20th, 2009, 03:35 PM
the first match that comes to mind is the 2008 Aus Open SF between Daniela and Ana. Had Danka just kept the high level from the first set...

Also, 2009 French Open QF between Vika and Safina. Had Vika just kept the high level from the first set...

Oct 20th, 2009, 03:45 PM
Where do I begin? Which JJ-Ana or JJ-Henin encounter?

Oct 20th, 2009, 03:46 PM

The only one I can remember this year is of Mathilde Johansson vs. Diatchenko ...broke my heart when she burst out crying

:o:o eurosport german moderator said after MP when they showed Johansson crying "look guys, the 18-years old russian has to cry for joy" :o:o how embarassing.

Oct 20th, 2009, 06:04 PM

'Heartbreak' is such a fad word.

The toughest match i've ever sat through from a fan perspective was the USO QF between Venus and Serena.

THAT smash.

Oct 20th, 2009, 08:38 PM
Dani-Ana AO'08- complete meltdown fron Dani, that match was hers, i still remember the last game she got broken for ana to serve for the match vivdly, swinging volley top of the net long, backhand error, backhand error, volley error right at the night followed by ana's scream, gah that was bad

Jennifer- Justine 2003 USO- another heartbreaker, she was 2 points from the match like 10 times

Ummm...NO! :weirdo:

I've disliked Serena since 1999 - Ooo it's my 10 year aniversary :hearts:

Oct 21st, 2009, 01:45 AM
The most difficult was probably the Amelia Island 2002 final because it dragged on forever even though the outcome was clear once Justine first started choking.
The most heartbreaking, I guess the US Open '06 between Justine and Jelena, the last tennis match I was seriously emotionally invested.

Oct 21st, 2009, 02:35 AM
2009 Wimbledon ...Amelie losing to Safina.

Oct 21st, 2009, 03:35 AM
The ones when I was still young and naive are the ones that hurt the most.

1992 RG Final. Wanted to kill myself despite being 12 years old.
1994 USO final. This one still makes me weep.

Those two alone would have tied Court. :sobbing:

Oct 21st, 2009, 03:41 AM
