Exact opposite of the other thread.......what losses hurt the most?

Agassi d Medvedev 1999 FO
Nalbandian d Federer 2003 USO
Kafelnikov losing to Kuerten in all those close RO QF
Johansson d Safin 2002 USO

many more.........these are just off the top of my head

Yes, I was there for that as well, then again I should have mentioned that. The funny thing was that Rosset wasn't the actual weak link, it was Federer who wasn't at this best in that match.

It's definitely worse when you are there, than on TV seeing all the changes and riding the ups and downs of the match, and then a major error or a bad call changes it even more.

Moya b Mantilla 98 FO I thought this was Felix's or Alex's best chance to win a Slam.

Ferrero d Gonzalez at 03 FO

Everyone of the 8 times Mantilla has lost to Ferrero.
He lost 3 of them in the 3rd set breakers that is just painful, another one he lost 7-5 in the 3rd.

The other four are painful but for different reasons.

This one is probably the worst 2002 Monte Carlo
Ferrero 6-1,3-6, 7-6

At the time it was really a heart break to see Pat Rafter lose to Pete in Wimbledon 2000. But during Pete's "drought" I was actually kind of happy that he at least won Wimbledon 2000 because I thought it was gonna be his last Slam.

To those who say it's worse to see heartbreak matches when you're actually there, I agree 100%. I was there when Canas beat Roddick in Toronto TMS and my disappointment continued when the Bryans beat Knowles/Nestor in the doubles final.

AWWWWWWWWWWWW Q biiiiiiiig :hug:

Anyway... who knew Andy had such power to make so many people sad :devil:

Ones I can think of right now...

Karlovic d. Fish (2004 AO 1st round, just grrrr)
Hewitt d. Roddick (2001 USO QF - Andy just needs to watch that over and over again to make sure he never acts like that again)
Safin d. Roddick (2004 AO QF)

hmm I can't really think of any more. Most of the time when my faves lose, there's a perfectly good reason. I think the only time losses make me really really upset is if my fave either could/should have won or if something else sort of 'extraordinary' happened (like Andy's meltdown in the Hewitt match :o ). Plus, unless it's in a big major tourney or whatever, it just doesn't seem all that terribly important enough to say I was "really sad"

Ok, y'all gonna think I'm insane. TMC Houston. Roddick vs Coria. Now, I did NOT see this match. I was stressed all day, had upset stomach and couldn't eat anything because of this match. I was light headed and the match didn't come on until 10 p.m. where I am. So I'm waiting and dying and the match had already been play BUT ESPN weren't gonna show it until 10 that night. So I decide to go online and see who won this fuckin match so I could go to sleep! Before I see who won, I ask my bro "What was the score?" He says "I dunno. Tiebreak in the 2nd though. Roddick wins." and I say "Last set 6-4 (or 6-3, I forget, thank God) Roddick wins". So I check the score and we happened to be right. So I go to bed and cry for like a frickin hour. I was depressed for the whole while till Feds beat Andy...and then beat Andre.

Two losses that made me really sad I didn't actually "see" but watched every point on a scoreboard.

1) Alex Bogomolov loss to Karol Kucera 6-0 6-7(3) 4-6
1st rnd, Miami '04
I don't really want to relive this match but I just keeping having thoughts of seeing those match points on the scoreboard and then reading consistent reports about what happened. I 'm sure these types of matches have happened before but in all the years I've followed Tennis I've never seen a player lead in most stat categories and still lose :sad:

2) Alex Bogomolov loss to Martin Verkerk **retired in the 5th set
This one broke my heart because I know that Alex could have gotten the upset here if it wasn't for the damn full body cramp. Verkerk's attitude in interviews afterward didn't help much.

3) David Nalbandian loss to Andy Roddick
SF US OPEN '03

4) Guillermo Coria loss to Martin Verkerk
SF Roland Garros '03

5) Tommy Robredo loss to Albert Costa
QF Roland Garros '03

6) David Nalbandian loss to Andre Agassi

7) Guillermo Coria loss to Andy Roddick

8) Nicolas Kiefer loss to Vince Spadea

So Tennis 724 you don't think Verkerk's attitude was understandable if Bogmolov said those things to him on court? I wouldn't go out of my way to be nice to someone if they said that crap.

Another bad loss is 2002 Toronto Roddick over N. Lapentti especially with the alleged cramp shenanigans Roddick was up to in that match.

From what I heard, it went both ways. And to hear Verkerk say that he thought Alex was faking it didn't exactly fill me with respect for the guy.

I'm not sure what to believe of what Alex exactly said because I know those comments are coming from people who didn't like him in the first place. Doesn't have much creditibility to me. I would need to hear it from more than one person. Honestly though? I know how Alex is on the court so it wouldn't bother me if he called him every name in the book because that just means he was pissed off at Verkerk.

I have seen them both play on the court and I wouldn't be surprised that if they were both sledging each other.

When it comes to cramps I am always cynical about players cramping, it's their own fault and no one elses if they cramp up during a match, and many have used it as a ploy to buy time.

Old Tarango was right when he gave it to Paul Goldstein about him cramping "Only girls, get cramps".

I don't think you would believe if it even if Alex said it, of course it probably would make sense concentrating on his own game and not bother with the other crap.

I would believe it if it came from someone who didn't already have a dislike for him. I know how Alex can be because he cussed out an umpire (who deserved it) at the Challenger in Torrance, Ca. last October. I know he has a mouth. Not denying that.

Leave it to you to make a mature comment :rolleyes: . Did Alex say something about Roger that you didn't like? Or do you just feel like being an instigator and talking about someone that you know nothing about?

The only people that I've come across that don't like him at all are those that have only see Alex on court. Most people that actually know him know that is just a small part of his personality. I don't know Alex as well as his friends and family obviously but I know him well enough to know that he's certainly not a "brat."

Dirk
03-28-2004, 09:20 AM
Making excuses for his behavior. I'm just calling like it is. He flipped off a fan who was cheering for Martin Verkerk last year and he has done other crap on court. He is a brat plain and simple. If you were truly a fan you would tell him to grow up on the court. You don't have to personally know anyone to tell them the difference between right and wrong.

Actually I have met Alex off court and he was alright nowhere near as painful as some others. Though the vast majority of people are going to see his on-court antics and that is where they are going to get any impressions from him favourable or negative.

The way he is on court is going to get some negative reactions for sure and btw, if I don't like someone I can talk objectively about them.

Dirk
03-28-2004, 09:39 AM
I agree with George, people will think badly of players based on their on court behavior. That is when a player's true character is present. I don't care if someone is an asshole off the court too much if I like their game and like to watch them. When I was in Miami and looking to meet Rios I expected a "No I won't sign your ball go fuck yourself" but that wouldn't change my mind about him. I would simply smile and say "ah that's Rios" Not that I entirely believe his jerk reputation that the press has pegged him with. The point is if you love Alex and want him to win then you should encourage him to behave like a proper sportsman out there because one its good for the sport especially the youngsters and two most importantly you have a better chance winning the match if you stay positive and professional through a match.

Though the vast majority of people are going to see his on-court antics and that is where they are going to get any impressions from him favourable or negative.

And I'm aware of that but (unfortunately you can say) I get very protective of him when I hear negative comments. I know that he's not all sweet and nice but he is who he is and I wouldn't ask him to change, as Dirk suggested, to conform to how one thinks things should be.


The way he is on court is going to get some negative reactions for sure and btw, if I don't like someone I can talk objectively about them.

And i've seen proof of your objectivity. It's Dirk that I was mostly referring to. He seems to like to fling around profanity and name calling as if that explains what you don't like in someone :rolleyes: . If I was more awake I probably wouldn't have let him piss me off :p .

I can't quite tell if you have an opinion one way or another about Alex but I do appreciate how you've stated your opinion. Hope that made sense. Need to head to bed to be up in time to watch the scoreboard of his doubles...lol.

As for negative comments concerning favourite players, well I don't care if they are my favourite players but if they have done something that justifies criticism then they are not immune from it.

I don't have much of an opinion of him, if I was bothered to watch more of his game and not hear more about his antics, then I would be able to construct a better opinion than I have.

OK, understandable that it's none of my business. But when you respond with "no comment" makes me question if you have really "met" Alex rather than just see him off-court and be in the same vicinity.

As for negative comments concerning favourite players, well I don't care if they are my favourite players but if they have done something that justifies criticism then they are not immune from it.

There's justifiable negative comments and then there's those that like to do name-calling for no reason. Personally, I haven't experienced a negative moment with Alex. That's not to say that I won't (it's only been almost two years since I found out about him) but I haven't yet. I have yet to see anything negative about him. What others seem to not like about his personality is one of my favorite things about him.

I don't have much of an opinion of him, if I was bothered to watch more of his game and not hear more about his antics, then I would be able to construct a better opinion than I have.

I'm not sure that I understand the phrasing of this comment :confused: . Do you mean that because you've heard about his "antics" that you have no interest in his game? That kind of confuses me too because if you have met him then the opinions of others shouldn't be influencing your own personal opinion of a person. I don't know. Maybe I have your statement all wrong :confused: .

I have met the guy I have only seen him train and never in a match, as either he has been knocked out too early, or there have been other matches that have been on the same time. I haven't seen him enough to make a valid opinion. Don't question me that I am not able to come up with an independent opinion.

Edberg was up two sets to one and a break in the fourth. Chang just ran, ran and ran. For miles. Reached everything and never got tired. Chang beat Edberg in five sets and is the youngest GS-champion ever (a little younger than Wilander and Becker - correct me if I'm wrong). Chang never won a GS after that.

Edberg was that close to complete a carrier Grand Slam. I cried after that match :sobbing: (to my defense I was only ten years old). :rolleyes:

So you saw Borgs matches live? Cool. :cool:

Speaking of Borg, the never ending question, can you really compare his effort to win 6 French Open along with 5 Wimbledon titles to anything else? I know I'm swedish and perhaps not very objective. B u t, very few people in the modern era has managed to win Grand Slams on both grass and clay and he did it so many times.

Too bad he didn't play AO, it was on clay back the wasn't it, then there would be no question who's the greatest of all times. ;)

Yeah, I agree. Its a shame what has happened to him. I have the US semi 2003 v Agassi and it was amazing the kind of tennis he played then, he's not even half as good now I would say :( He was hitting so many winners, and he had so much confidence.

I was lucky enough to attend that match and watch it live. I'll never forget it. Ferrero was absolutely electrifying that day. The first two sets were a masterclass and he did very well to fend off an Agassi fightback in the 4th set. In truth Agassi played very well himself despite losing. Some idiots were saying before that Ferrero could only play on clay. I bet this match shut them up :).
But now I hate the fact that he's struggling to reach the 2nd week of grand slams, and hasn't won a title for an absolute eternity :(

That was the beginning of the end for Ferrero, never was the same after that :(

In fact I believe the Masters Cup 2003 was perhaps where he lost something, I'm not sure. Then he had chicken pox and lost it :sad:

That match also marked the beginning of Fed's complete dominance of the pro game. He got to number one by winning that match and hasn't relinquished it since. But it is sad what's happened to JC the last three years or so. He's better than almost all of these hacks populating the top 10 right now, he just doesn't believe in himself anymore.

Interestingly, this thread was made shortly before RG 2004 where Coria lost. Many people didn't even like the guy then and were still sad to see him blow it the way he did. I was sad.

I'm a huge Borg fan, so I'm going to have to say Borg's US Open loss in '81 was heartbreaking. Wimbledon was tough, but US Open was a steak through the heart.

As for Coria at RG that was a wonderful day, that almost made up for what happened in 1999.

Muster's defeat to Dewulf at the Vienna final in 1995 was a shame. Muster clearly wanted to win the Vienna title badly, and a bit like Rios at Santiago/Vina Del Mar, he came so close but couldn't quite cross the finishing line, finishing as the runner-up there 3 times during his career.
The Roddick-Nalbandian 2003 US Open Semi-Final was bad. I saw the match live, and I was still jubilant after Ferrero's electrifying display against Agassi earlier in that session (and also Henin's courageous and epic victory over Capriati the night before), but this dampened my mood. Given that Nalbandian and Ferrero were my 2 favourite players on the ATP Tour at the time, I would have loved it if they had played each other in the final, but it wasn't to be.

Baghdatis' losses to Hewitt (Aussie Open 08) and Agassi (US Open 06) hurt, but the most devastated I was probably after the loss to Monfils in Melbourne two years ago. I knew it would be tough, but I was convinced he could succeed nonetheless. After the first two sets my hope was basically gone. When Baggy regrouped and took set 3, I was optimistic he could take it in 5. Well, and then he got bagelled in 4th set.:sad:

Federer's losses last year to Nadal at RG (because of how onesided it was) and Wimbledon (not necessary to say why) weren't easy either. But it was not that bad as it Rafa is ok for me.

Difficult to say. Many of Roddick's losses have been pretty tough to take. Gasquet @ Wimby 2007 was probably the worst.

USO '05 F: At the time, Fed was my #2 favorite, Agassi #1 as the childhood hero. I drove 4hrs back to my hometown on Saturday night. I watched our local football (American) team's season opener, which they lost, the following day around lunch. Then we watched the USO F and Agassi lost. Then I drove those 4hrs back to my place in order to attend work the next morning, getting home at midnight after 8 hrs on the road in the last 24.

Wimbledon '08 F: Watched it with a good friend who hates Fed and loves Nadal, yay! I was stuck in that paranoid state all day long after Rafa took the first set. I threw my TV remote against the wall and broke it after Fed missed his chance at a double break in the second and then was broken back to being on-serve (then broken again for a 2-0 sets Nadal lead). Then the rain-waiting began, and it just drew the entire affair out. Hope was finally pulled back up, and then Fed lost. Then that late Sunday afternoon, back-to-work tomorrow depression kicked in after it was over and I was in a serious funk. Then I re-watched USO '04 F and felt better. That last sentence is not true.

Oh, and when I was five, my dad and I picked american football teams to win the Super Bowl. His top team beat my top team in the Super Bowl, and I immediately went up to bed and cried by myself. He tried to come up and make me feel better, saying it was only a game, but I wouldn't talk to anyone for about 24 hours.

Henman losing to Goran at Wimbledon 2001 - I was happy for Goran, but that was Tim's year

I hate mtf, it is so cruel.
It's just trying to make you stronger.

As a Roddick fan, 2008 aside from Dubai was not a good year.

Nah, Tim had all the momentum before that last rain delay. He was on fire!
