For me, Lendl losing to Mats Wilander at the 1988 U.S. Open...when he was going for his fourth Open in a row, and the record for most consecutive weeks at #1!...Tears were shed at the end...losing in five sets made it even more painful...One of the few times I actually couldn't sleep for days :sad: What about everyone else?

Never cried, but of course I get a bit emotional. Most euforic so far must have been after USO 88 when Wilander sealed a Swedish Grand Slam and overcame the hurdle that not even Borg managed to pass. Worst downer was easily when Edberg lost in RG 89.

Just to clarify...and yes, it is still pathetic to live vicariously through others...I was only 16 or 17 when I cried when Lendl lost...not bawling but tears...

But let's change it up at little, what about fits of rage after losses??

I remember after Lendl lost to Becker in the Wimbledon semis in 1989 after having a two set to one lead and a break in the fourth...and then the rains came, Becker recovered, and Lendl lost his best chance to win Wimbledon...I was so mad that I took the lawn chairs from my front porch and threw them down the street...Another time was when Lendl lost a two to love lead to Michael Chang for THE SECOND TIME at the Masters Cup...I remember Mary Carillo's words, "I'm sure Ivan is thinking, 'I can't believe I fell for the old lose the first two sets and then come back routine"...I threw a pillow and it hit a lamp...Maybe I just have anger issues ;)

federated
09-19-2006, 11:52 PM
I've never cried when a player lost--but the first time I *Really* watched federer play; I think it was his 2004 wimbledon win, I shed some tears because he was just so beautiful to watch--the same sort of tears I shed when I listen to paganini or other ridiculously beautiful music...

hmm. I have been depressed--numbed for like 2 days-- by favorite players' losses: federer to rafa at the french this year; and feliciano lopez losing to ljubicic in the first round of wimbledon. I guess it was more an emotional draining type thing though, than honest to goodness sadness.

Hell. I was out of it for a week when Federer crumbled at Roland Garros. :rolleyes:

BUT fits of rage? Yeah, frequent ones, when Feliciano Lopez loses to some nobody--which means I've been pissed off on most mondays or tuesdays this year.

LaTenista
09-20-2006, 12:00 AM
I cried after Rafa won Montreal and lost to Berdych in the 1st round of Cincy last year. This year just 2 tears after he lost in the Wimbledon final.

Fits of rage, anytime Ferrer loses to some guy I thought he should have beat - esp. the QF against Robredo at Hamburg. That still has me :fiery:

JW10S
09-20-2006, 12:02 AM
No, I have never cried when someone else (or I) lost a tennis match because that's all it is, a tennis match. I remember talking with someone the day after the Lendl/Wilander match who said they were feeling sorry for Lendl until it was flashed on the TV screen how many $millions he had won in prize money in his career--they stopped feeling sorry for him real fast.

~*BGT*~
09-20-2006, 12:03 AM
Fits of rage? Yeah, that Wimby lost to Murray pained me!! It meant Roddick would fall out of the top 10 for the first time in 3 years. The losses to Andreev and Ferrer this year in IW and Miami and Blake in Indy.

No, I would be in a perpetual state of depression if I let Dominik Hrbaty's losses bother me. :)

I only remember crying two times regarding sports. The first was when I was like 6 and the Atlanta Braves lost to the Minnesota Twins in game seven of the 1991 World Series.

The other was when I lost a really tough tennis match my junior year of high school for my school's team. I cried afterwards so much and part of it was because of the match, but it didn't really make sense to me at the time. Later that night I found out my grandfather had died that day and it was just a sad, horrible, eerie, bizarre feeling. It was like I somehow knew about my grandfather's passing after the match and that caused my crying....but I didn't. Very surreal. :sad:

Sweden vs Australia, 2001. I cried before, not after the tie. So excited to see Jonas.
Alex Popp df Wayne Arthurs, Wimbledon 2005 (?). Alex winning, is enough to make me cry. I get emotional when my guys win. If they lose I might say 'you f*cking idiot!' under my breath, but I'm over it in a few minutes.

i really went into the ugly cry when he won the US open (just like he did)

i used to feel so stupid crying & getting emotional over stuff like this until just before he retired i heard Agassi say that tennis was a way for him to make a difference in someone's day....i really felt & understood that because i allow players to make a difference in my day - good or bad (and when its bad its bad:fiery: ).

I'm not sure I've ever cried at a tennis match loss, though I have been known to walk around in a state of stunned confusion for the rest of the day after one. I tend to cry at big wins. Agassi's Wimbledon win was a big one.

In fact the only sports loss I can remember crying about was the UK/Duke southeast regional final game of the 1992 NCAA tournament. I'm pretty sure the entire state of Kentucky burst into tears over that one...at least the basketball fans did.

Never cried over a loss. I've gotten teary at some wins, but never actually cried.

There was a last second shot at a champion basketball game that kept me awake once. ;)

Never cried but I've broken many stuff: cds, pens, remote controls, diskettes. Whatever is at hand.

a sad one was sampras losing to bastl at his last wimbledon on that outside court.. he really did look a beaten, broken and finished man.

Henman losing to coria in that roland garros semi a few years ago was a real choker as well, especially as he had his chances but typically blew them.

When a match I really care about goes the way I was not hoping I don't get close to tears or get really angry. I Just feel a little empty but as soon as I start doing something I am fine. There is just a few seconds of emptiness after the GSM.

Yes, several times :sad:

One of them was when Magnus Norman lost the RG final in 2000 against Guga Kuerten. I was pretty already at that time that Magnus will never have the chance again to win the French Open

Oh sure! I've cried when Tim's lost matches, i think i cried when he lost to Dima in the French even though i liked Dima, i didn't want tim to lose :sad: I cried when Roger lost to Nadal in the FO final too even though he's not like my fave player, i have no idea why i did that :lol:

And answering the thread`s title... no, never. I got annoyed and/or "sad", but I got over it pretty soon. It`s just a sport :)

BUT fits of rage? Yeah, frequent ones, when Feliciano Lopez loses to some nobody--which means I've been pissed off on most mondays or tuesdays this year.

It's okay to admit that you are happy that Justin is done for the rest of this season (the surgery was a success and he's recovering well so far). :lol:

Well, I have to admit that I am so sentimental that I cry at every movie, episodes of West Wing, even some commercials, songs, Peanuts cartoon stirps, you name it. I have only cried once because someone lost a match, and it wasn't because of the match, it was because we had been having a pretty decent time during that tournament and I had to say goodbye. That was hard.

I have choked up over a lot of wins, even by players I don't really support, simply because they have teared up. If I see a player cry, almost any player, I will probably cry too. I am not ashamed to say I cried for a good five minutes when Pete won his last Wimbledon and when Goran won it too. I admit that I am a sentimental sap. :)

Nop, really I never cried later that any player was losing his match.
I think the only time I've cried was when Gaston Gaudio won the Roland Garros :D

I'm sure you don't even consider Gaudio before Roland Garros.

Going back to the loss Lendl had against Becker at the year-end championships, the reason I lost was because of the way the match ended: does anyone else remember? It was a tie-break in the final set after Lendl failed to serve out the match at 6-5. Lendl was down 5-6 in the tiebreak, and after a rally of about 30 strokes, Becker hit a netcord that died and fell over the net!!!!!!!!!!!! A net-cord match point winner!!!!!!!! :eek: :sad: Unbelievable! The pain still resonates...

Hola NyGeL !!!!
Como veo que sos de Argentina te contesto en castellano.
La verdad que te equivocaste en tu apreciacion, yo al gato lo sigo mucho antes de Roland Garros, siempre fue mi jugador favorito, cuando todos se subian al tren del exitismo de Coria, yo seguia bancando al gato y lo voy a seguir bancando hasta el dia que se retire, no me importa si baja al puesto 300 del ranking, mi admiracion por el va mucho mas alla.
Me encanta su juego, creo que tiene una tecnica exquisita, y personalmente creo que si tuviese una mentalidad mas ganadora hubiese llegado mucho mas lejos.

Besis, cuidate ;)

Once. When Roddick lost to I think Safin at the Australian Open in I think 04. See I don't even remember much now :lol: I have no idea why I did, I didn't even watch the match, I just checked the score in the morning and started crying. It was very weird.

Only sport that made me cry was football, and that was when I was 7 or 8 years old.

I've never cried after a tennis match, but I must say I almost did this year after a Davis Cup doubles match between Peru and Brazil (February '06) were my team lost in 5 sets (Luis Horna/Ivan Miranda) against Kuerten and Andre Sa. I was very disappointed after that match because If we would have won that point, we would have won the tie as well, as Horna easily defeated Saretta afterwards. However, I would have had no hope for the following ties I guess... it's very difficult when you only have 1 decent player on your Davis Cup team! You can't expect a lot.. :rolleyes:

Now thinking, I believe I was more frustated than anything!!1 :p
