Re: Your biggest comeback in a tennis match???

I was down in the first set 1-4, got the score back to 4-4, then it started pouring and the match was postponed until the next day. We came back and I lost the opener 6-4. Then my opponent goes up a quick 4-0 lead in the second and then a 5-1. After this, I realized I had nothing to lose, so I let it rip and took the second set 7-6 in a tense tiebreak. I then took the third in a 10-point tiebreak. Great match!! I saved 6 match points.

I was playing a guy who is fast and redirects every ball back a real grinder probably a strong 4.5 level guy but I knew I could hit threw him so I built a strong lead going on and taking the set 6-2 in 40 minutes ... The second set I started to get sloppy I made a triple double by barely sailing my serve long ( I was hitting quite flat with no spin) which is normally a very affective serve for me... I got pissed and let him into it and he ran away with the second 6-3... at this point I'm like " how did I let this pushover into this?" I realized I needed to take my time hit varied serves hit a few slices out wide to the ad side And got some short balls which I put away with easy still he managed to grind his way with help from my own sloppy footwork to 6-5 with 2 matchpoints' first matchpoint I whipped a cross- court return bomb followed by charging the net and hitting a swinging volley nicking the outside of the sideline on the ad side. Second point he hit a weK second serve which I easily dealt with a bdtl winner. I followed it up with a strong final set tie break and beat him 7- he never beat me again

Re: Your biggest comeback in a tennis match???

My best come from behind win was in a league match against someone who usually beats me, came out on fire and won the first set 6-0, then the usual pattern came back and lost the 2nd 3-6, then got down 2-5 in the 3rd. My opponent had 6 match points in total at 5-3 and 5-4 up, and I took the match on my first match point, 7-5 in the 3rd.. he was a bit shocked and speechless afterward...RESULT!

Of even more significance, there's this little gap in Graf's resume the size of the hole in the ozone layer: It's called Monica Seles. Was Graf the best female player of all time? She wasn't even the best in the heart of her career.

Re: Your biggest comeback in a tennis match???

For me it was during an indoor tournament. I was down 0-6; 0-4 and my opponent hit a great passing shot to get to 0-40. I made my opponent a compliment about his amazing level of play - and meant it! - and then suddenly something happened. He made one error after the other, I won the game, got back to 4-4 and proceeded to win the set and the match.

You see, it doesn't hurt to show your opponent some respect every once and a while ...

Re: Your biggest comeback in a tennis match???

ITF (Clay event - about 5 years ago):

2-6, 0-5* (0-40) to 2/6 7/5 6/0 - saving 3 match points with 3 backhand winners. I still remember it because 2 of the winners called out and the umpire checked and they were in. All on a SF match

Re: Your biggest comeback in a tennis match???

Once I was playing someone and trying to be aggressive as usual but kept getting outrallied and I would always hit a shot into the net. I was losing 6-0 2-0 then I was like screw it and decided to just counterpunch (read: push) and hit slices, drop shots, moonballs, etc. which really threw my opponent off and I ended up winning 0-6 6-3 7-5 I guess changing up your tactics can really work after all. Though it felt weird to not play my usual game I guess sometimes you just have to adjust when nothing else is working.

Re: Your biggest comeback in a tennis match???

In a college doubles match, my team was down 67 35 and we won 67 75 63. I know it's not really a huge comeback just looking at the score, but our opponents were winning all of their games to love and we were barely eking out games after like 5 deuces. I guess it was less of a big comeback and more of a "how the hell did we win this match?" It certainly felt like the biggest comeback I've ever made because we were being totally outplayed.

Bitttchhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh You Better Pay It Honey! The Devil Is A Liar!!!!! Bitches Get Interviews And Shit? Where They Do That At Honey? Girls Are Late Honey!!!! The Queen Needs To Get Into It Honey Cause The Girls Is Late Out Here! Yes Honey Im Throwing Epic Shade!

Management!

Re: Your biggest comeback in a tennis match???

In a league championship match my partner and I lost the first set badly (6-1) and roared back to win 6-1 6-2 in the second and the third.

In terms of coming back from a big deficit in a match? said partner and I came back from down a set and 5-2 numerous times. In the state tournament we were down 6-0 5-0 before winning 0-6 7-5 6-0. They never had a match point.

The one match we should have come back in? we were down 6-1 3-0 before winning the second 7-6 and taking a 3-0 lead in the third before losing in a tight 3rd set breaker.(this match was against the eventual state doubles champions)

Re: Your biggest comeback in a tennis match???

My biggest comeback was much closer than the score had indicated. In the match, i lost the first set 6-0, and i was down 3-0 in the second with my opponent serving at duece before a rain delay. Although i had lost all nine games i new that i still had a chance because 7 of those nine games went to duece and had several break and game point chances.after the two hour rain delay, i managed to get back in the second set at 2-3 before my opponent stretched the lead again at 5-2. I won the next three games and ended up taking the set 10-8 in the tiebreak after saving match points at 4-6, 5-6, and 7-8, before winning the last three points to take the set. In the super tiebreak we again stretched beyond the given ending when i served at 14-14, both of us already having saved a couple match points, and on that point i hit my only ace of the entire 3 hr 45 minute match to set up my fourth match point on which my opponent missed a passing shot in the net. Despite my comeback efforts, i was beaten in the very next round 6-1, 6-4 in a much less contested match.
