At the 1997 U.S Open, the womens event saw 3 different women in the quarters or later fail to convert on match points. Monica Seles in her quarterfinal with Irina Spirlea failed to convert a match point in the 2nd set. Seles would have then played Venus Williams in the semis, and if she won Martina Hingis in the final, had she converted. Jana Novotna in her quarterfinal with Lindsay Davenport failed to convert a match point in the 3rd set. She would have gone on to play Martina Hingis in the semis, and if she won, Venus Williams in the final. Irina Spirlea in her semifinal with Venus Williams failed to convert 2 match points in the 3rd set tiebreak. How would each of these 3 women have gone on to do had they converted their match point. Would any of them gone on to be Champion you believe? Give 1 vote for each player.

Novotna-loses a 3 set semi to Hingis

Seles-wipes out the lucky Venus Williams, then loses in straight sets to Hingis in the final

Spirlea-loses in straight sets to Hingis in final

Was Spirlea the one gravy train Williams called a "big white turkey"?

Yeah she is the one. That was after the bumpty-bump in the middle of the match, Spirlea bumping Venus hard on a changeover.
