Lindsay Davenport def. Kim Clijsters, 2005 Roland Garros round of 16.

Lindsay down a set and a break on clay against Kim whom she hadn't beat in forever.
It's the most recent comeback of hers and the most emotional for me. :worship:

Dementieva - IW semi against JHH down a set and 5-2 with a double break and won 7-5 in the 3rd :worship: or maybe being down 0-6 0-2 against Smashnova RG 04

Vee - Amelie Island final against JHH was down 6-2 4-0 and won 7-6 in the 3rd :D or maybe the Wimbledon 05 final down a set and a break, saved a MP in the 3rd and won 9-7

What was the best comeback in a match you fave player has done?

Her fall from the pinnacle of tennis in April 1993 was as perverse as it was unprecedented: She was stabbed in the back by a fanatical supporter of the very woman she had supplanted as the world's No. 1 player.

Though the physical injuries from the attack took a few months to heal, it was years before Monica Seles got over the emotional toll. But after not playing for two years, she won her first tournament back, the 1995 Canadian Open, and added her ninth grand slam title at the Australian Open the next year.
