HAS MONICA SELES EVER LOST A MATCH AFTER BEING UP MATCH POINT?

LIST THEM ALL IF YOU CAN!?

HAS STEFFI GRAF?

anyway, Graf has too. 1994 US open final to Arantxa comes to mind. I'm sure they both have lost a few matches having had matchpoint.

I am pretty sure Monica had a match point or two against Hingis in the final of the 1997 Family Circle Cup. It was such a bummer that she lost, since Hingis had thrashed her in their previous 2 meetings in Oakland and Miami (I think Monica won 5 games total in 4 sets!).

For Monica:

US'97 against Spirlea
WB'07 against Testud
Lipton'02 against Capriati

Steffi had matchpoints against Arantxa in Tornto'94 and Hamburg'94, but I'm not sure that she had them at the US'Open.

Check the 'Match points' thread

I understood perfectly. Just wanted to point out that Steffi was not exactly a rock. :)

Oh, well, the match you are talking about (1990 French final?), Steffi did choke away a bunch o' set points, but they weren't matchpoints. Which I'm sure you know.

Gandalf, Monica played Testud at Wimbledon 2007? Wow. :)

Graf also had match points against ASV in Hamburg and Montreal 1994 and lost.

Steffi didn't choke away those points in the 1990 French Open tiebreak, in fact most of those set points were saved by Monica winners. Monica just played fearless and raised her level.

Anna had Mps against Jelena in Stanford semis last year :(
