What is the biggest comeback you've made in a match?

I just wanted to know what was the biggest comeback you've ever made. I can't really remember any times when I have made an "amazing" comeback, so I'll just tell you about today.

So today I went to the courts and my friend and I decided to play a set first to 6. Well I played shitty as usual, and the sun was absolutely horribly bright, so my serve was sucky. So he got out to the quick lead at 3-1, and he continued to dominate. So he was up 5-2. I was serving to him, and I was down 0-30. So I just really tried to concentrate on what I do best, trying to make people tired. I fought off a match point in that game. And so at 3-5, I started to just slice and get the ball in and make him tired, because I knew he would eventually hit it into the net. So I got the match to 4-5, saving 3 more match points. So I was serving, and had 2 points to take the match to 5-5. But I choked and on match point, he got up to net and I missed an easy lob

I hate playing him. Have you ever gotten mad because you have the game to beat somebody but you can never pull off the win? That is how I feel with the dude

Yep, I did it once when I was down a set and 0-4. I lost in third set tiebreaker, however!

Well we played for fun, and we played a 5 set match

I came back from 2-6 4-6 2-5 to win 2-6 4-6 7-5 7-6(1) 6-2. That was 2 years before my game took a nose dive and I lost all power on my serve. I actually could hit a good forehand and backhand back then

I've comebac from 3-9 in a ten point tiebreak in a league match.

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw




"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

once i played a best of 3 tiebreak and i was trailing 3-7, 3-6. i started to keep the balls in play more. my opponent just went crazy. i saved 4 match points to win the 2nd tiebreak 9-7. my opponent crashed as he lost 7-0 in the last tiebreak. i was pretty satisfied with my matchpt saving that day!

We won the first set 6-2 and was up 4-0 in the second. They ran off 11 straight games and we found ourselves down 6-2, 4-6, 0-5. We crawed back and won it all in a tie-breaker. Felt gooooooooood
