Venus saved 7, then beat Capriati - can't remember the name of the tournament - it was in the first half of the year (may have been the Lipton)

Rubin saved 9 against Novotna at RG in 95.

There is a thread in GM somewhere called Match Points. I think it has all matches won that had MPs saved

Well, logically, 6 points in a row would is the MAX number of points in a row someone could save match points, right? That is, someone leading 6-0 in a tiebreak and then losing the match

There was some thread last year about some player who saved 15 MPs or something big and came back to win.

I'd say more 8 or 9... But as Mary said then, "After 2, that's too many!" :lol:

I remember that match. I think Jana was leading 5-0 but as soon as Rubin broke her serve the first time you just knew right away she was gonna lose the match. Noone could choke like Jana Novotna :help: .
