when your fave loses 6-1 6-1 or 2-6 7-6 12-10?

In first case, although it's a painful defeat, you know she had no chance from the start, while in second case you know she had so many chances.
IMO, I prefer Linsay losing badly than her losing after failing to convert 7 match points.

I'd rather have my fave lose a close match than one that makes her look bad. It is heartbreaking when Chanda loses close matches, but it's worse when she loses matches that aren't even close, especially matches that she should have won. (For example at the US Open :o ).

It's much more fun to watch a close match. Winning 1&1 is more fun.
But if it's a loss, I want to feel the tension.

Losing a close match is better....you know at least she had a chance.

In my case being a Williams fan, if they lose 6-1, 6-1 it means they are injured or that they basically quit competing somewhere during the match. I'd much rather see them go down fighting then to completely tank the match.

I think this is an easy question. My fav is Sonya Jeyaseelan and if i see her lose a close match I get sad but then think 'well, it was close and hopefully she wins next time' but if she loses 6-1 6-1 I think 'holy f*ck she must have played shitty today, how embarrassing is that?'
who wouldn't want their favourite player to at least come close to winning?

Losing a close match is better - the player knows they could beat them next time.

it depends who they lose to. i'd hate to see justine and kim lose easy matches to serena. actually, i hate both. i'd rather they win.
