Your biggest comeback in a tennis match???

Yesterday I won a tight match, but I was on the verge of defeat. It was such a topsy-turvy match.
I the first set my opponent led 3-0, then I won 6 games in a row to win that set. In the second set, it was me who led 5-2 before losing that set in the tie-breaker...
In the decider I was down 2-5 and 30-40 but managed to save a match point and that gave me such a confidence boost that I won 5 next games and the whole match! The craziest one in my amateur tennis career

How did your best escape from defeat look like?

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

My biggest was when I was down *1-3 0-40 in the first set, held that game and broke back at 3-4*, saved 2 BPs at 4-4, and 1 more at 5-5, then saved 4 SPs in the tiebreak at *4-6, 5-6*, *6-7, and 7-8* before winning it on my first SP for 10-8...then I ended up winning 7-6 6-2. Was a really fun match

I was down 2-6 1-4 .... and then he twisted his ankle during one of the very few rallies in the match. Best moment of my life

Thank you for everything Mercedes, now please be nice to Socrates for me, perhaps fetch him a bird or two. We love you, always.

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

I was 3-6 3-5 (0-40) down on my opponent's serve (he was serving for the match with 3 matchpoints) but I saved those (somehow!), broke back and took it to the tiebreak in which I won 7-5. I immediately got broken on my serve in the final set to go 0-1 down and was always playing catch-up. After that one break, we both held serve every time, so ultimately he was serving for the match at 5-4. However, I broke him and took it to a final set tiebreak... I won that 7-3.

Final score:

3-6 7-6(5) 7-6(3)

The. Best. Feeling. Ever.

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

I've had a lot TBH that's my specialty. But most have been in fun matches. The best in a tournament match was up 6-3 but down *5-2 then at *5-4 my opponent had set point but I won the game. Then he broke for *6-5 and had set point but I won that too. Then in the tiebreak I was down 5-1 and I won 7-5. He was crushed .

Another great one was 4-6, 6-1, 1-5 (0-30) for me, I won four points in a row there then saved a match point at 3-5 and won it 7-5. This was not an official match, but we had bet a large, large sum on who would win .

My number one: Victoria Azarenka

ATP: Novak Djoković

Crazy Frenchies! Gilles Simon Alizé Cornet

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

I was down 1-6, 1-4 (0-40) against a player who I had taught the basics of the game. This was my first time on a tennis court in 2 months while he had been training regularly. He sliced his backhand and his serve and forehand had improved tremendously - my game was falling apart. At that point, I decided to start rushing into net on every point, approaching his backhand with the occassional cold winner hit to the forehand to keep him honest.

I saved 7 matchpoints and won 1-6, 7-6 (7-1), 6-2. After the match the guy goes, you didn't teach me everything about tennis. I asked what I'd left out and he goes strategy.

FUCK YOU, SEWTA.

In singles: from 3-6 2*-5 15-40 down to 3-6 7-5 6-0 saving two MP
In doubles: from 1-6 1*-4 down to 1-6 7-6(2) 6-2 saving three MP

I have never choked a match away in singles, but many times in doubles.

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

Before in a practice set against a guy I hate he was *6-5 40-0 up, saved the 3 match points, saved a 4th at deuce, won that game, 6-6. He went 6-3 up in the tiebreak, I got it to 6-6, then he went 7-6, 8-7, 9-8, and 10-9 up and I saved them all. I won 12-10. I was so happy.
