Rematch It is a concept that comes from the French term rematch. It is a revenge , a reprisal or a retaliation . For example: "This time I was eliminated in the first round of the tournament, but next year I will have revenge", "The Mexican boxer has already asked the champion for revenge", “Having arrived at this place is a rematch for me”.
Revenge is usually considered as a triumph that allows to repair or counteract a previous defeat . Take the case of two tennis players competing in the circuit of the ATP , as Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer . In a tournament played in March, Nadal manages to prevail over Federer . The next confrontation between the two takes place in June and, this time, Federer It is who wins. It can be said, therefore, that the Swiss had revenge against the Spanish.
The rematch can also mean an achievement that comes after a bad time, which can be of a very varied severity, depending on the context. On the one hand it can be a season of serious health problems that prevent a person from enjoying his life with freedom, after which his recovery finally comes as a revenge against the disease; but you can also describe the situation of an individual who wants to organize a party for his birthday but does not have money and the following year he finally gets the means to make the celebration he wants, so he has his revenge.
When revenge is understood as a revenge for a damage or a hurt that an individual suffered from another, this usually occurs in relationships and work relationships. In the first case, suppose that two people break a courtship after a long period of living together because one of them has been unfaithful; a rematch in the hands of the affected party could be to ventilate the secrets of the first with all its circle of friends and acquaintances, or even to reveal that it had also had a hidden relationship, whether or not it was true.
Needless to say, such a rematch is not exactly the most advisable for an individual who feels injured by the actions of another, since it is very likely to add suffering because of not cut with that painful story and move on . Also, since they don't get tired of repeating the old sayings, we must not do to others what we do not want them to do to us, no matter how much they damaged us.
Revenge in the face of an injustice in the workplace is also very frequent, especially after a dismissal that the employee considers inadmissible; if during his time at the company he had access to information Confidential about future plans, for example, you may decide to publish them anonymously, even if this puts your legal situation at risk. Just as in couple relationships, it is not advised to lower yourself and stain your own name to pursue revenge, but to look forward and look for new opportunities.
In many sports , the rematch is part of an already established formal mechanism. There are soccer competitions whose qualifiers They are defined through two matches: a first encounter and then the rematch. This means that, in the second game, the team that lost before has the possibility of taking revenge and achieving the classification. If the result of the first game is repeated, it will end up qualifying the same winner.
"Rematch" it is also the title of several films , television programs and plays, given that it is a very common term even in everyday speech, and that it presents a great versatility in its meaning, since, as stated above, it can refer to sports confrontations, times of good luck in personal or work life.
