Most M.P. You Held And Still Lost?

I was 8 years old in Saddlebrook,Flordia (I got to train every summer) , and they were holding small tourney's , I had won all the 8 and under tournaments , all the 10 and under , all the 12 and under , and I won 4 of the 5 14 and under tourneys , and I was in the finals of a 16 and u. tourney and i held 9 Match Points and lost all! I lost 6-0,5-7,6-7
I was up 5-0 in the 2nd and 5-2 in the 3rd

But you cant really be mad when you are a finalist of a SADDLEBROOK , one of the worlds best traning camps, 16 and under tourney at 8!

fuck.

I've never lost a match where I've had a match point, surprisingly. That probably has to do with my inability to win any return points.

I once won a match saving 6 MP's though. One of my infamous 6-7 7-6 7-6 wins. I served 3 DF's to go down 0-40 at 5-6 in the 3rd set. Broke a racquet, and swore my ass off. Service winner, service winner, easy s&v, ace, service winner... 6-6... then saved 2 more MP's in the final TB which I won 9-7.

But I've also come back from that many down.

I've never lost having match points. Actually, I've only lost three times in three sets

I've won, saving match points.

I was losing 6-4 5-1; and I won 4-6 7-5 6-4. I saved 1 match point.

I once was able to save 3 match points(it was really tough), but I still lost...

Actually, in one tournament, I held a 40-0 lead in the 1st game of the match, but I ended up loing the game...it broke me mentally...

I once had set points, but lost. I lost 7-5 7-6(8-6). I was losing 5-0 in the first. And I was down 5-3 in the second. I got up 6-5 in the second--where I had 4 set points. I saved 3 match points in the breaker 6-3.

4...my serve is pretty bad, and especially back when this match was played. I led 6-4 3-6 5-4 40-15, and double faulted twice. Then after saving a break point, I gained the AD before spinning in a really weak second serve which was returned for a winner. Then again I had the advantage, but sent a backhand into the net. My opponent ended up breaking me, then went on to hold and break me once again to win 7-5 in the third.
