To waste a match point in the second set and still win the match is a sign of mental toughness and fighting spirit. Do you remember matches in which it happened? Here are the ones I recall:

-2000 Roland Garros SF Pierce def. Hingis 6-4, 5-7, 6-2 (1 MP)
-2001 Roland Garros QF Capriati def. S. Williams 6-2, 5-7, 6-2
-2001 Toronto F S. Williams def. Capriati 6-1, 6-7, 6-3
-2001 US Open QF S. Williams def. Davenport 6-3, 6-7, 7-5
-2005 US Open SF Clijsters def. Sharapova 6-2, 6-7, 6-3 (5 MPs)

Add the other ones you remember so we can make a list:)!

Im confuse...... :confused:

how can you consider a player to be mentally tough when she can not even close out matches in two sets?

Like Clijsters in the USO against Maria....
I mean duh, the match clearly isn't about Kim's mental toughness,
Kims is just too good for Maria in that match and have it not of Maria's fight and well the usual choke from Kim in GS, it should have been 6-2, 6-2

You must have not seen this match. Sharapova raised her level greatly to save those match points. It would be a shame to say Clijsters chocked away that second set when in reality Sharapova fought extremely hard to win it. I'm not a fan of Sharapova but she showed some great fight in the second set.

It shows mental toughness, because no matter how much the other player gained or regained form, the player still found a way to win. A lot of people get discouraged after losing match points and then the set. True fighters never give up and losing a few match points means nothing to them. It's mental toughness for sure.

and because of they are mentally tough, they allowed the opponent to come back and extend the match to three sets...


yeah..more practice perhaps.... :rolleyes:


BTw, before anyone jumps on me.

I agree that some of the matches mentioned are really impressive in terms of mental tougness, specially the close fights...
