I'm interested in whether the bold phrase in these examples is correct in terms of grammar from the native's point of view?
In tonight's competition I'm an underdog and have no chance for any of the reasons: I'm not confident in myself, I don't believe in myself, I haven't been preparing enough, I don't feel well or any else. My win is completely unexpected and looks impossible to me. And I say: If I won that award my life would change.
I've just lost the competition right now. And maybe even next year this competition will be again and I can fix everything but doesn't matter actually. I've just lost right now. And I lament: If I won that award my life would change.
I mean the Oscars, the Olympic Games, the Nobel Prize, whatever. I'm not a professional athlete/actor/writer and don't even intend to become one. It's just an imagination. I guess: If I won that award my life would change.
Does this phrase grammatically apply properly to all these described cases??
May I use the construct "If I won it would..." for situations I do not expect and do not believe in their feasibility in reality? For any unrealistic, hypothetical or impossible in my vision in present/future as the examples above?
