View Full Version : How would you rather lose a match?

It's 1 set all, would you rather lose a match by:

Having a big lead in the final set, like 5-2 but losing 75 in the Final Set (but not having an match point)


Its been close all the final set, you break at 44 and serve for it at *54 and have *40/15 (Match point) but end up losing in the final set TB 7-4.

MP. Huge leads means you're a bigger choker than if you lose a MP at 40-30....

Agree; match point. Wouldn't want to choke.

Ah, you changed it. But the first scenario is still a bigger choke.

I would personally want to lose having had a bigger lead. I have lost a match after having match point and the feeling isn't that great. It's as if you are just in front of the finish line, yet you just couldn't take the step forward and your opponent beats you to the line.

I have also lost matches where I had 5-2 or 5-3 last set leads and lost in tiebreaks because my opponents just started to play more aggressive and much better tennis than I did at the time.

MP.. Losing a match when you lead something like 4:0 or 5:1 is way more frustrating then lose it when you have MP in 5:4..

match point too.

MP. It would still feel bad, but having a huge lead is worse.

Option 2.

But both would suck. :p
