Match points

Just curious to see some experiences here of people dealing with MPs! Im realy good with them, I've never lost a match having them, polar opposieto my friend, I've beaten him like 5 times after he had MPs. Once I was 7-6 5-4 up against him and had 3 MPs, los the set on a tiebreak, then went 5-1 up in the third and he brought i back to *5-5 40-A and I still won. Once I saved 10 MPs in a tournament against a pusher, which made it sweeter. He had 3 at 6-5 and then in the tiebeak he led 6-3, 7-6, 8-7, 9-8, 10-9, and I won it 12-10.

Re: Match points

I've won a few matches saving match points, but can't recall a match where I had match points and lost. Maybe in some pro 8 practice set or whatever.

Re: Match points

Lost my club championship final two years ago 6-7 7-5 7-6, after being 5-3 up in the decider and having a MP at 6-5 in the tiebreak. Ended up losing it 8-6. Shame it wasn't a long set instead

Last year got my revenge on him in the semis beating him 4-6 6-2 6-1 and played my coach in the final. Once again led 5-3 in the 3rd and lost 4 games in a row, but no MPs this time. Final score 5-7 6-2 7-5 to him

Hopefully 3rd year lucky haha!

Re: Match points

Yeah, I never lose a match once I get one.
It can take some time but I will close the match.

If I have a MP against me, depending on the score, it's either all-in or shameless pushing if it's close.

Re: Match points

The most i've ever saved was 8 match points and won!! Down 6-3 5-1 40-15, I won 3-6 7-6(2) 6-1.

Many other other times i've saved match points and won too, but not as many as that

Re: Match points

During a school tournament, I was playing mixed doubles. 8 game pro-set, no ad. It was terrible.

First we were up 5-2, I was hitting so many backhand down the line winners off my opponents serve. Then chokefest. Me and my partner start spraying balls everywhere. Now we're down 5-6, still on serve. We break, and are up 7-6. My serve. Doublefault fest. 7-7. 7 point tiebreak. We fall back 4-1, then we somehow fight back and it's 6-6. Somehow, my partner (who isn't very gifted with a tennis racket, unfortunately) comes up with an amazing rally to get us match point. Then she tightens up and misses a return of serve. Amazing point again, all from my partner. Then, she misses another easy ball. Two more errors, we're done. It was terrible. We lost 8-7(7). Worst match of my life.

Re: Match points

I remember saving 7 mps in a two tie breaks before, winning 4-6 7-6 7-6, man those were the days of junior pushy tennis

Re: Match points

the ones where I had mp and lost was at a tournament. I won the first 6-4, then lost the second set 6-0, it was a 10 pt third set and I was down like like 8-4 and went up 9-8 before losing 4-6,6-0,[11-9]. Earlier in the day I lost 7-6(11),6-4 ( I had 7 sp in first set and was up 4-1 in each set against my brother )

I have played a ton of matches where I saved mp's though

Re: Match points

I was down 3-6, 3-5 0-40, then 5-6 30-40 and 40-AD, and 6-6 2-6 and saved those match points, and then saved some at 4-5 15-40 in the third to win 3-6, 7-6(6), 7-5 against someone who never should have had the advantage. He was just a track star who could literally only hit slice anything....and it drove me, an Ivanovic type player, INSANE!!!!!

Re: Match points

Once i came back from *0-5 30-40 in the decider

Being a pusher, i generally play alot tighter on important points, i save match points very commonly when i play matches. I very very rarely lead against any player. It's either i come back or i don't

Re: Match points

I've saved plenty of match points, but that doesn't necessarily mean I win the match. I've saved tons, but still end up losing the match a couple of games after. I've saved a couple of set points and came back to win the set though.

I don't think I've wasted match points before. If I get to match point then I usually win. I've only wasted set points.

When I had a MP I always won. When I was facing a MP I always lost a match. Where is that option ?
