Facing a Grand Slam great: Dream come true? Big loss? Both?

It can represent quite an opportunity when a lesser-known and less-accomplished tennis player faces Rafael Nadal or Serena Williams or another great of the game at a Grand Slam tournament. It can be a chance to meet an idol. A chance to measure up. A chance to soak up the spotlight. A chance for a career-altering upset. It also can end up resulting in a lopsided loss. But players still tend to treasure these matchups at majors against the biggest names in their sport. They say it can be a valuable learning experience and gets easier the more often it happens.
