What match result defines "tennis winning" for you?

i.e. what result was, in your opinion, the definition of the right thing happening or right person winning in tennis? Or pick multiple results if you wish.

Re: What match result defines "tennis winning" for you?

Noledal losing a doubles match. Both soldiers of antitennis losing in a single match; can't think of anything better for tennis.

Proud supporter of El Tio , the greatest genius alive!

Alchimists transform iron into gold. Boriiiiiing!
Movie-makers transform dreams into reality. Yeah, whatever...
El Tio transforms Dull into a multiple GS champion! Daaaaamn!

El Tio has the keys to weather, court speed, draw making, umpires' decisions and perception of time between points, top players' fatherhood, and my libido!

This signature is in no way ironic. Please don't ever let El Tio think that, for my sake!

Plenty of examples. Wawrinka def. Raonic in Cincy 2012 comes to mind.

Tennis is always winning for people who enjoy the game and are actually capable of giving credit where it's due. Tennis is winning when you are not blinded by hate.

An unknown territory for a vast majority of this forum.

Re: What match result defines "tennis winning" for you?

Rosol def. Nadal
Darcis def. Nadal
Stakhovsky def. Federer

Any matches of those nature are examples of tennis winning, in my opinion

Oh Sheesh Y'all, 'Twas A Dream

Number of Times I've Cried Over Sucking at FITD: All but seven

W Houston and Samarkand Singles W Charlottesville W Lermontov W ATP Bastad W Bol Fut W Orleans (w/MathMul) W Cordenons (w/dinkulpus) Tashkent S&D (w/ Mr Brightside)

Whenever a talented shotmaker with offensive skills beats a pushing vulture with no weapons but his stamina.

Stan Wawrinka
2014 Australian Open Champion | 2014 Monte Carlo Masters Champion | 2015 French Open Champion

There are no vultures with no weapons, in my opinion. I understand what you mean though.
