Text of most memorable dream reports from participants in the Memorable Dreams Survey 2011 and other sources. Exact question used in the Memorable Dreams Survey 2011: We are interested in hearing the story of an especially memorable dream you had, from any time in your life. Please try to recall as many details as possible, including the setting, characters, colors, actions, and any feelings or thoughts you had in the dream. I was 16 years old and I had a dream where I started out playing in the finals at the US Open and I ended up losing so I was very upset. Well then Rafal Nadal and Roger Federer came and were encouraging me and saying that it was ok and that it was only one match and I will be able to play another match like it. At first I was extremely sad and upset but then I felt both surprised that the 2 best tennis players in the world were watching me play but then relaxed and relieved. The next part of my dream was that Roger and Rafal brought me to my old elementary school (Diamond Canyon) and I was all proud and excited to show off to all my friends that two most awesome players in the world. So they dropped me off at my old math room and we were out sitting and talking and I still had butterflies in my stomach for how totally awesome this whole situation was and then we all went into the room where my old math teacher was and he was super surprised about who I was with too but then he gave a huge smile and welcomed them to play. The next thing I know these two are playing a match of ping pong against each other and everyone is super excited and then Roger asked me if I would like to play. Suddenly I was all nervous and told everyone that I was not as good at ping pong as I was at tennis. Then my math teacher came up to me and told me that my dad was here so I rushed over to him and warned him who was there but before I could finish he came in and saw Roger and Rafa and started flipping out with excitement. I was really happy but also embarrassed. So yeah this is the dream I remember and chose.
