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

I was down 4-6, 0-5 and he was serving for the match; but I broke the serve and come back on that set, then won the match. It was the most amazing match I have ever played and probably I will never ever play anything like that again

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!

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

In my 4.0 league final, I lost the first set 3-6 and it wasn't even close. I could only return 1 of his serve the entire set and barely held on to mine for three games. It wasn't even that I was playing badly. His serve has just on a whole different level. It has so much spin and more pace than any serves I've face before. I swear he was serving pro level because 95 percent of his second serves were right on the line.

I just hanged in there got some serves back, and won the second and third set 6-2 6-1

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

I didn't win the match, but I was down 6-2 4-1 playing my usual hit and miss, ball-bashing game. I thought I would change it up and play some pathetic pushing tennis (not like me at all, and even more unusual as I move maybe a step quicker then Maria, on clay, when it's damp.) It worked and I won the second set by 6-4 and had multiple match points in the MTB where my pushing got me in trouble as I didn't have the balls to go for my shots on my MP's and ended up losing 12-10.

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

I rarely choke and rarely come back

My biggest comeback would be winning 06 75 76 in April. The boy is a bit stronger than me, and he had beaten me 3 times so I was delighted to win tis one. First set I got crushed but in the other two sets I just made sure I fed him no forehand and ran everything down. That was a good match

In practices though, I have come back from 1-5 several times. When I don't really feel like playing, that's the score I usually wake up at.

Biggest choke - Losing a match from 3-0 40-0 first set, 4-2, *5-4, *6-5 second set => 36 67

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

Back when I used to play club tennis as a kid, we were playing a doubles match and found ourselves down 0-5*. As nothing was working and we wanted to keep the match going, we started moonballing, and I really mean moonballing. We hit so many lobs that they became increasingly frustrated and started missing most overheads. We eventually took it in a tie-break (played at 5 all).

Afterwards we encountered one of our opponents sitting on the ground crying.
