Re: Biggest choke in 2009 seasson?

As a Alona Fan you maybe can imagine which one I think But she would have lost in 2R so it doesn't bother me too much.

As for the others, Vera had some very bad chokes, especially the US Open one.

Re: Biggest choke in 2009 seasson?

Martinez Sanchez's choke against Radwanska was rather depressing And I think she also threw away match-points against Cetkovska in Acapulco and Kanepi in one of the US hardcourt events.

Vera vs. Flavia

But to be fair, that wasn't really a choke, Pennetta just played great on 6 match points.

Re: Biggest choke in 2009 seasson?

Vera vs. Bartoli, as Vera was playing like a goat, hitting every DTL, and getting everything back for the 1 1/2 sets, and then suddenly decided that she sucks at tennis.
