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?

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 :lol:

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.

I've had a lot :p 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 :angel:.

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 :hehehe::angel:.

I was down 2-5 15-40*. I broke my friend 2 times and was 5-5. Next I won my service, my friend too. In tie-break my friend was 4-0. I won 6 points a row and I was 6-4 in tie-break. Final score in this set was 7-6(7) for me :) I was so excited!

Yesterday I played a match against my friend. I was down 0-6 3-6 4-5. He served for the match and had 3 MPs. I saved them, won the set 7-6, the following set 6-1. In the 5th set he had another match point at 5-4 with me serving, before I won...

0-6 3-6 7-6 6-1 7-5. :)

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. :p

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. :o

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.
