One of the classic forms of embracing failure in sport is not only accepting defeat graciously, but even instigating defeat. When the honesty of the moment calls for it. One of the crowd favourite examples is Jack Sock’s alerting Lleyton Hewitt to a miscall in an ITF match. He might have lost the point, but he won the unmatched adoration of the crowd and thousands of YouTube viewers. (thanks Isley)
