Re: Players More Remember For a Monumental Loss
I don’t know if my post fits here, but... here is a short story about a slightly forgotten Australian tennis player, Maureen Pratt. After she lost the final of the Victorian Hard Court Championships in 1972 – it was her seventh final and seventh loss in that event (though it seems at some point everyone had stopped counting her losses, as the press stated it was even the eighth or ninth time !), she was described as a player “destined never to succeed” there. Luckily for her, she won some other tournaments in her career, so people can remember also her victories, but whenever I see her name, that old article comes back to my memory.
