The only lost I have on tape is Ree at the Tour Champs and of course Kimmy losing to both sisters in grand slams. I haven't watched the tour champs final since it aired. I like both players so I could accept the result which is probably why I have it on tape still.

If it was just a heartbreaking-why-did-you-lose-to-this-player loss, I would tape over it.

I don;t really tape tennis matches unless they are on at a riduclous time. I still have Kimmy beating Serena somewhere, I also taped the Scottsdale final, and numerous Indian Wells matches to study for my media studies research study.

I don´t tape any tennis matches either... just when there is an exciting one on TV and I´m not able to watch it due to work but afterwards I am most likely to use the tapes to tape other stuff on them again.

Yes, I have every match of Elena Bovina singles match I can possibly get... and there's quite a few losses in there. :p

I don't of Monica , because it hurts when she loses.

However, I have tapes of Miss Tatiana Panova losing becuase she is hardly ever shown on tv; I have a few tapes of her winning, of course, I saw her beat Anna K and JenCap.

if it was a good tough match then I keep it (but sometimes erase the last games ;) ) I also record and then keep all the matches with my favourites when they win and I'm now running out of space, but I just can't erase anything :)

I have the 97 French semis and finals of Iva
Davis Cup vs. US
Iva vs. Martina Hingis at the US Open 2001 (7-6 in the third loss)
Iva in the Charleston final
Mirjana vs. Seles/Tauziat/Graf at Wimbledon

I have taped over all of my other recordings

I won't tape over Hingis/Venus 2000 US Open semis. As much as that loss hurt, it was a classic. I have Seles/Venus from US Open 2002. Not worth watching, but I won't tape over it.

I have many of Amelie's matches. Because we don't get great coverage of her here in the States I depend on my French/British friends to send me tapes. I value each and every one of them. Just to see her play is a joy for me and when she's beaten an opponent she's lost to previously, it just makes it that much better for me. Then I can see what she's done differently and compare the two matches.

Generally, I don't keep losses, unless it's an historic / emotional match in Monica's career (loss to Steffi in '95 US Open, loss to ASV in '98 RG, etc.).

I generally only keep key wins, also, such as the victory over Venus in '02 Oz and over Lindsay late last year.

Elke

I don't keep them, I only have the RG 2001 final where Kim lost.

I accidentally found a tape of Monica losing to Studenikova at Wimbledon in 96. Boy did that open up a few wounds!! ;)

I keep them for a while, but then I tape over them. I still have Kim losing to Serena @ the AO, but I'm in the process of erasing it ;)

Usually no, but I still have Jelena's US02 2nd round match because her 1st round victory match there before. But I haven't watched it even once - to painful :(

I keep a tape of Mirjana Lucic losing to Capriati at the FO...but only cos she never wins.

Julian
Mar 20th, 2003, 05:26 PM
If it's a good quality match then yes! Otherwise, I HATE to keep a match when my fave loses badly especially in straight sets...for example (99 and 00 French semis...) shudder lol :)

My Answer Is:

no

Mar 20th, 2003, 05:31 PM
I don't - i have most of steffi's slam wins and loads of other big matches, but i taped over her losses, big or otherwise, whenever she had them.....i know i'll never want to watch them again and even the close ones are too painful to watch, in fact even more painful!
this means my video library is full of success - and there is more than enough of that to keep me watching for ever! :wavey:

the only matches I have with Venus losing is US OPen 99 semis to Martina(match was so good, and very painful to see Vee lose :sad:) She was so close to winning, and I think I also have the Steffi/Venus match at wimby when she lost.(outstanding match) Venus losing to Monica the the AO. 1st round of FO(sad match, but vee didn't execute)

I also have when Serena lost to Patty at FCC. Serena losing to Kim at WTA, and Serena losing to davenport at the USO 2000(very painful), Serena losing to Martina AO(Serena was up in that match :( )

Forturnately, I don't have it like others and my faves win most of the time. I have so many matches where they have won taped. I always go back and watch them. From usopen 97 to AO 2003, and all the other tier 1, 2, and 3 tournaments that comes on. I set my vcr, and keep them all on tape.

i have about 20+ vidios of matches....mainly lindsay davenport and roddick...and i think there are a couple of seles, williams's...i dont tape over any of them...i accept that lindsay isnt going to win every single match she plays..and i enjoy watching her play...even though i end up screeming at the tv!!

Of course I do...I love tennis no matter what and I like to see good tennis. It hurts when my fave loses but I still keep it on tape.

Of course it's more enjoyable when Vee wins. ;)

But nevertheless my collection of tennis video tapes is growing...I tape every single match that is aired on tv :o

Since i have a goal to collect all or most of Tulyaganovas videos, i got to get the losses too. I got the offer of the Justin match in Linz 2001 when Iroda won and bageled Justine in the second set. I turned the offer down, as the match ever since I saw it has lived its own life in my memory. ;) and I was afraid to destroy "my inner video"

But I may change my mind later ;)

BTW if any of you got any gems to the museum. PM me!!!

I thought this years was worse: I have that on video but I haven't watched it...too painful.

Harloo,

What are you talking about. I saw that match and it was painful but I believe the third set was 6-3 Hingis. I wouldn't call 6-3 score "close to winning".

Well I haven't seen this match, but maybe it's because there were a lot of break points/game points for Venus to take the lead? And maybe the rest of the games that Martina won were also really closely fought??

IMO, Venus was in control of that match. I haven't saw this one in a while and am going to look it up, but I think Vee's serve let her down in the second when she served for the match. Vee had alot of break chances and opportunities, but couldn't pull it off. Martina was too mentally strong at the time. However, in that match their was some amazing rallies. I think that loss was good for Vee, because after she saw Serena win the finals she never looked back after that.

Most of my favorites on the women sides usually win so I usually keep those tapes. ;) . I also keep tapes of guga or goran even if they lose because the American media rarely show their matches. I kept the tape of monica beating venus in the auz open, and the tape of hingis beating serena in the auz open, because those matches were interesting.
