Could someone give me any details on what happened during that? I can't seem to find any videos on it sadly.
2007 Dubai? Pretty sure that was the match when she forgot the score.
I never saw the match either, but the score was 40-15 but Eva called it as 30-30 and the referee came out and had to fix it. It was a bit of a mess, and she said once in an interview (I forgot when) that it wasn't one of her finer moments.

This is a really abysmal Google translation but you get the point.

E. Asderaki: To race in Dubai and since there were several interruptions in the game between Jankovic vs. Mauresmo delivered this speech wrong score, when it was time for a mess that was resolved with the help of the umpire [referee]. It was a mistake that should not be done.
