But if I had to pick, I'd rather lose 7-5, 6-0. Because that means that I was in it for at least one of the sets, and then for whatever reason just completely lost my mind in the second.
6-2, 6-2 means you never really were challenging in either set at all.
Take Hingis as an example, although she said she would've prefer to have lost the Aussie final 6-2, 6-2 initially, I think she was comforted by her mom Molitor saying that at least she had a CHANCE to win it this year.
I'd rather lose 7-5 6-0. Then I'd know I was playing close to the other players level, but had a problem I could work on.
At 6-2 6-2 I would assume that the result would never change.
I remember when Kim lost to Martina 0-6 4-6. Martina broke her to start the second set, and they stayed pretty much on serve for the rest of the set. Sure enough, Kim fixed her problems and beat Martina a year later almost to the day.
I'd HATE to be bagelled, and I'd be very annoyed that I dropped my level of play, but I think I could at least take some positive in that I was able to show that I can play to their level. 6-2, 6-2 Wouldn't really say much for my game because neither set was very competitive.
