Question What is the most hurtful early round upset you've ever experienced as a fan?

When your favorite player has been upset in the early rounds, which stands out for you?

Probably AO 08 and Murray's loss to Tsonga. By the end of the tournament it didn't look like a bad result, but at the time it was a real downer.

I would say Hingis losing to Dokic in 99 Wimbledon 1st Round.

Safin losing to Kuerten in the 2002 US Open was pathetic.

I am a fan of Gasquet and Nalbandian, and I never expect to much from them in Slams to begin with (except for Gasquet in Wimbledon), but after Nalby's 2007 indoor season I was really expecting something big from him in 2008 Australian Open, and then he played awfully and was destroyed by Ferrero.

Two really burn:

Hewitt losing to Karlovic defending Wimbledon.

Rsfter losing to Gaudio(?) defending US Open. Though I know Rafter had shoulder problems then.

How about Blake losing to one legged Agassi in 2005 when being up 2 sets to love?

2003 Wimbledon Karlovic d. Hewitt

Defending Champ, Opening Day, Centre Court.

Crash...and burn.

That's why, perhaps, Hewitt's win over Ivo at RG just the week...felt gooood.

I love my girls.
