Match points saved and lost

Seeing Maria save two match points against Panova in the second round this week got me racking my brains to remember when else she's saved MPs to then go on and win the match.

When have your faves saved match points to then win the match? When have they had match points themselves to then lose the match later on?

Maria obviously lost the match but held MPs against Serena in AO, Kim in Cincinnati and also Ana "check her blood pressure" in Cincy.

Maria was match point down against Washington in RG in 2006 to then win...
Maria saved a MP against Li in Rome.
Maria saved at least one MP against Schnyder in RG.
Maria saved a MP against Stosur in Stuttgart.

Re: Match points saved and lost

Aga, Madrid 2014 against Kuznetsova saved 3 MPs in tiebreak and won whole match 6:3, 4:6, 7:6 (8-6).
Aga, Singapore 2014 against Sharapova, saved 3 MPs in 2nd set (won 2nd set from 1-5 to 7-5) but lost whole match (5-7, 7-6(4), 2-6)

I can't remember more.

edit: Oh I know!

WTA Championships 2011: A. RADWAŃSKA def. V. ZVONAREVA 1:6, 6:2, 7:5
Vera lead *5-3 in 3rd set but Aga saved 3 MPs and won 4 games in a row to 7-5.

Maria is the best on WTA tour, only Senera with 100% inform can beat Maria.

The Sharapova match doesn't really count then

Maria saved 3 MPs (in a row) against Kim at US Open in the second set but still lost in the third...

I think in 2012 Jelena had 7 matches where she had at least 1 match point and lost.

We try not to think about 2012
