and you created a new thread why? you could have easily asked this in the result thread.

anyway: no, of course it isn't. one example is likhovsteva being up 6:0 and then losing 8 straight points against mary pierce in moscow some years ago.

No. I would say Likhovtseva's 6-0 lead in the final set tiebreak over Mary Pierce in Moscow (2005?) is worse... Mary Pierce won the tiebreak 8-6.

0-7 would be more embarrassing.

Didn't Venus do that to Mirza at the AO in 2008?

I believe Bepa blew a 6-0 lead in a tiebreaker at the Pilot Pen a few years ago. Can someone confirm that?

7-0. Maria did that to Tati at the US Open in 2006.

Fairly sure you can't lose from 7-0 up. After winning that point at 6-0, you win the set.
