Re: Match points

I always waste tons of MPs, I need like 5 to close out a match..!
At the same time, I'm one of the best match point savers... My opponents need at least 5 MPs on their own as well

Re: Match points

I always think to myself there is no pressure anywhere in the match until match point. Once you have one, you know you have played well enough to get there and can win the match

Re: Match points

I dont think i've ever lost a match after having matchpoints....neither have i won one after saving them! I do tend to waste a lot of matchpoints though, and need about 30 of them.

Re: Match points

6-2 5-3 40/0, to 2-6 7-6 6-3 I had three match points and hit three double faults, and two backhand errors over the baseline to lose the game and then I mentally just fell apart. I was crying and all sorts.

Re: Match points

I think I never wasted a MP in Singles, only in Doubles once in a 3rd set TB! I am very hesitant to do anything on my MP though, even when being up 6-0 5-0
I have saved a MP in the most "important" match I ever played, was nothing big though!

Re: Match points

Once, i led 6-4, 5-1 40-00 (i had 2 more MPs later in my next Servise game) and i won the match 6-4, 5-7, 6-4 .

Another time, i was 3-6, 5-6 30-40 and i won 3-6, 7-6 (3), 6-4. That was really good!

Re: Match points

I was playing amazing tennis and it was just a one set match.
I was up 5-1 40-0 with 3 match points
then all of a sudden all my shots were just not going in
and he came back and it went to a tie-break and he had match points
then i finally regrouped and won.
like 10-8 in the tiebreak.

So terrible. I had like 10 match points.

Re: Match points

I lost just one match from MP´s, and I never won a match when I saved a MP...once I won from 5:7, 3:5...5:7, 7:6(4?), 6:4...that´s all

Re: Match points

I tend to save match points and win the match. I don't know why. This happened yesterday funnily enough. I was down 4-5 and saved four match points and won. It included a comeback from 0-40 on my crappy serve. I don't really lose match points as set points are generally where I slip up.

Re: Match points

Well, once I fought back from 0-5 facing 3 match points(at 3-5) and once from 0-4. But once I lost 4-0 and 40-15 in third set. In most cases I use match points and few times I saved few to win match after that. But more ofen I lose set after wasting set points or opportunitis like 3-1 and 40-15.

Re: Match points

I shouldn't have posted in this thread saying I have never wasted (or saved) match points. Totally jinxed myself. Today during my secondary school competition I wasted two match points. Just awesome.

Yes, yes, yes. I have been up and even taken the first set and then lost. It's as if the tought of winning cause me to choke and lose. I just don't understand it.

Re: Match points

For me, I get very tight when facing these match point. I usually play very safe and just try to keep everything into the court and I end up saving sometimes the point but losing couple later, very frustrating. What should I do to resolve this? I very much dislike being passive and tense.
