Obviously in quotes, as I didn't blow them as much as my opponent fought very hard and did what he need to do to win the point. Damn. Tough loss. I know a lot of times posters whinge, whine, complain, moan on these boards and then get taken to task by other posters. I'm not doing such--whining, that is. My opponent was the better player and deserved to win. I didn't close the deal when I had the chace. Serving for the match at 5-2 in the second after winning the first 6-4. Had five ad-ins and each time he won the point. That was it. My will to fight, which is usually above average, wained considerably. He coasted to the second set 7-5. We played a 10-point TB and I regrouped. We were at 9-9 and he won the next two points. Just decided to post to hear other people's stories: most match points you've ever failed to convert and then gone on to lose the match/toughest loss of your tennis "career"/etc. Not looking for advice. Perhaps just some people to commiserate with. I know there are a lot of tennis enthusiasts here, and I'd like to hear some of your thoughts on your matches that might have been similar to mine and what you've learned from them/taken from them. As Andy Roddick once said, "I've never in my tennis life learned one thing from a victory." The flipside being there's always a lot to learn from losses.
