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

I have some good comebacks through the years (hey, I'm nearing 50!), including from a set and 5-0 down, saving multiple match points along the way, and then rallying again in a third set. I've lost my share of those matches, too, not always because I choked -- sometimes, the guy just starts playing lights-out tennis. My best comeback was in a high school match in my junior year against a guy who had beaten me in straight sets the first time we played. This time, I played him even and got to a third-set tie-break. This was the mid 1970s, and we played the nine-point, sudden-death tie-breaker. I went down 4-0, facing five straight match points. I saved them all and won the match!
