Sorry to start another "what if" thread.
The one I wish I could change is the '96 Wimby Semifinal between Kimiko and Steffi. I really wish Kimiko would have won that one..
What about yours?

The one where Monica was stabbed...

1992 Wimby Final - wish Monica would have won.

i would change the wimby final 1993. jana deserved the title so much. she was the winner, not steffi.

Evonne Goolagong

Good topic :yeah:

#1. The 1974 U.S Open final, wWhere Goolagong narrowly lost to King.

#2. The 1991 Wimbledon final that Sabatini almost won over Graf.

Hingis VS Capriati 2002 Aus open Final. Hingis should have won!!!!!

Wimbledon 2003 r1

Ai Sugiyama bt Lucie Ahl 36 64 64

Lucie lead in 3rd set 3-1 30-30 and fluffed a backhand pass, she then had 2 points for a break to go up 4-3.

Had she won she'd ahve achieved a career high ranking in the top 140, and had a good chance to make r3 against Fislova.

After losing she retired, she's been so close to making a breakthrough against top 30 players, but always came up just short and decided that was her last chance to make top 100.

I would like her to have made that backhand pass, or broken Ai at 3-3 and won it, so my favourite player would still be around.

Yep, I think the ONE thing Iīd have reverted is making that the stabbing didnīt happen.

GRAF DEF. HINGIS 99' FO FINAL 4-6, 7-5, 6-2. It wasn't supposed to be that way!!!!!!!! Martina should have won, the crowd treated her like shit(the same way they treated Serena this year) and that match was THE DEFINING MATCH OF MARTINA HINGIS' CAREER. Whether you choose to believe it or not, that match turned Hingis' career around into one of a short lived tragedy! Had she won that match, she would not have lost first round wimbledon, would not have relinguished her throne, and most of all, would not have so much mental problems closing out matches(this match led to all her loses in finals of grand slams and losing to Capriati at the 02 Aus. Open). This match is the one match that if I could, I would turn it around, The scoreline should have been 6-4, 6-4. For goodness sakes, Martina served for the damn match and was up like 6-4, 5-3. Why!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
