Biggest Comeback in your match (any sports including tennis)

Basketball:
In the first half, it was 5 to 25 and we came back to beat 35 to 28 in 2001 i think!

Tell me about your biggest comeback

Rest In Peace, Elena Baltacha

one time i won a tournament where 3 of my 4 matches i lost the first set 1-6...

i'm pretty proud of that...

It will always be Arantxa, hall of famer! and martina hingis and kim clijsters - amazing legends
ana ivanovic and the italian girls, especially pennetta (forza azzurre! RG CHAMP FRANCESCA AND FINALIST SARA!)
aga, vika, sam, na in the next tier

I was playing an eight-game proset during my junior year in high school, and I was behind 7-1. I came back to 7-7, then lost 9-7 But I was really happy with myself because I didn't give up.

It was about 4 years ago....when i was "still" in high school...i was playing against Caitlin Buckley, one of the better females at the time. SHe was in the zone, hitting winners off every corner of the court, especially of gher backhand...i found myself down 1-5...i came back to level it, only to lose the set 5-7 .

Second set was pretty easy, she had a meltdown, after a triple double, and i starter nailing backhands. I took the set 6-2.

Third set was pretty even. I won 8-6 and i screamed and threw my raquet. She swore. Hahahaha. Im ruthless!

starr.

One time in a tournament, I lost the first set 6-7(4) and then won the second 6-4, but I lost in the supertiebreak. Still that was the first time I won the second set after losing the first.

I also came back from like 1-3 down to win 6-4 6-2, even though that's not really a comeback.

Cool stories everyone

Once, I lost the first set 1-6 to my opponent who was playing well and I was just making a lot of UFE. Then I rebounded and won the second set 6-4. I thought I would keep the momentum going, but I totally came out flat in the third and he started playing really well again. He got up 5-2, after we had a little fight over a line call. To make a long story short, he had 6 match points, I saved them all and ended up winning 7-5 in the third. Fun fun (although it probably wasn't much fun for him).

I have been dieing to tell people about this match!

I was playing my best mate Kieran K. Well I won 4-6 6-4 6-4.
In the first set I was down 1-5 and pulled it back with lots of aces. Then in the second I was down 1-4 but came back to win it 6-4 and in the third set I was down 1-4 but came back to win 4-6 6-4 6-4! It was so tense and our friendship was tested to thge limit! These was one rally at 4-4 in the third that went for 103 strokes. When I won the ralley I raised my arms and yelled "Fuck yes!". It was awesome!!!

The best match I have ever played in!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah, I've had like 20+, but definitely not even 50 I don't think

Anyway, I have two great matches in mind, both of which I either lost or didn't finish

One was against my friend a couple summers ago. I was down 1-6 1-5, and then I came all the way back and won 11 games in a row to lead 1-6 7-5 5-1, and then I choked and lost in the third set tiebreak 1-6 7-5 6-7

Another match was recently against my cousin, and I won the first set after playing really badly, and I won 7-6. Then the second set, I continued to play badly, but now my cousin could actually take advantage of my mistakes, and I lost 4-6, and in the third, I was leading 3-1 and it got too dark to play So the match ended at 7-6 4-6 3-1

But really, choking has been the story of my life Don't get me wrong, I've won matches, but none of them have been close by any means. It's either I blow someone out, I get blown out, or I choke a close one

Just last week while we were playing against another school, it was an 8-game pro-set, and I was leading throughout the whole set, up to 6-5, and I ended up losing the next 3 games (and consequently the match) after choking away a game point to go up 7-5 hitting an overhead long

Yes 103 strokes incl serve.
Well first of all there is no way I could count during that rally!!! I video all of my matches and we looked at the tape and counted. The first 15-20 shots were aggressive but then it turned into a moonball fest, until I hit the winner. I was such a big point that we just waited for each other to make the error. It seemed to take about 5 hours to complete.

Well... In soccer (over two different games)... we lost the first game to a team 9-1.. and we had to play them in a Cup Game later in the year.. and we beat them 1-0.. it was probably the biggest win ever and probably the best my team had ever played..and last year we beat a team we hadn't beaten in like 5 years.. that was huuge

all the stories are awesome here btw

I was playing my friend bout 3 years ago i was 18 he was 17. I hadn't beaten him in about a year our head to head was prob something like 50-20 to him i think that last time i beat him i'd won 7-5 6-3 but we were playing once more and leading up to this i don't think i;d won a set off him in a while i was loosing 6-0 6-1, 6-2 6-1, my best set being 6-3 i think.

Well anyway the match started the same as usual he was steady hitting good shots some winners and i was awful missing the most basic of shots by miles i was down 5-0 then i was serving and we had this really long game where i was playign better so i knew in the 2nd set i would be playing better. I lost that game but felt confident.

In the second set i started off by breaking him for my first game. i was now adopting a more defensive game to try and keep the points going on for longer after a few more breaks and holds he led 3-2 hwe then held and broke for 5-2. i was telling myself just one more game, just one more game and with this i clawed myway back to lead 6-5 and by now i was playing well not my best but i was consistant.

It ended up going to a breaker and i knew i could take it. I played some great shots and rallies to win it 7-3 i think and i was amazed that i made it to a third set.

The final set started badly as i went 3-0 down cos he started playign much better, it then went with serve till 5-2. at this point i felt like i was going to die i was so tired we'd been playing for over an hour and a half and i wasn't the fittest person by this point. I was telling myself just one more point, just one more point. After every point i was trying to get myself going ala Sharapova and it worked, by now i was so tired all i could do was rally and run and as my friend self destructed with sloppy errors i clawed my way back to 5-5.I broke to lead 6-5 then i had ther longest game of my life serving for the match,. After every point i had to gop to the back netting to rest otherwise i'd colapse. After about 3 match points missed on my 4th i rolled the serve in and my friend hit the return long and i'd won 0-6 7-6(3) 7-5 for my 1st win over him in a while. Even though i was so tired i was just so happy.
