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

I was down in the first set 1-4, got the score back to 4-4, then it started pouring and the match was postponed until the next day. We came back and I lost the opener 6-4. Then my opponent goes up a quick 4-0 lead in the second and then a 5-1. After this, I realized I had nothing to lose, so I let it rip and took the second set 7-6 in a tense tiebreak. I then took the third in a 10-point tiebreak. Great match!! I saved 6 match points.

I was playing a guy who is fast and redirects every ball back a real grinder probably a strong 4.5 level guy but I knew I could hit threw him so I built a strong lead going on and taking the set 6-2 in 40 minutes ... The second set I started to get sloppy I made a triple double by barely sailing my serve long ( I was hitting quite flat with no spin) which is normally a very affective serve for me... I got pissed and let him into it and he ran away with the second 6-3... at this point I'm like " how did I let this pushover into this?" I realized I needed to take my time hit varied serves hit a few slices out wide to the ad side And got some short balls which I put away with easy still he managed to grind his way with help from my own sloppy footwork to 6-5 with 2 matchpoints' first matchpoint I whipped a cross- court return bomb followed by charging the net and hitting a swinging volley nicking the outside of the sideline on the ad side. Second point he hit a weK second serve which I easily dealt with a bdtl winner. I followed it up with a strong final set tie break and beat him 7-0 he never beat me again

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

My best come from behind win was in a league match against someone who usually beats me, came out on fire and won the first set 6-0, then the usual pattern came back and lost the 2nd 3-6, then got down 2-5 in the 3rd. My opponent had 6 match points in total at 5-3 and 5-4 up, and I took the match on my first match point, 7-5 in the 3rd.. he was a bit shocked and speechless afterward...RESULT!

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

For me it was during an indoor tournament. I was down 0-6; 0-4 and my opponent hit a great passing shot to get to 0-40. I made my opponent a compliment about his amazing level of play - and meant it! - and then suddenly something happened. He made one error after the other, I won the game, got back to 4-4 and proceeded to win the set and the match.

You see, it doesn't hurt to show your opponent some respect every once and a while ...

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

ITF (Clay event - about 5 years ago):

2-6, 0-5* (0-40) to 2/6 7/5 6/0 - saving 3 match points with 3 backhand winners. I still remember it because 2 of the winners called out and the umpire checked and they were in. All on a SF match

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

Once I was playing someone and trying to be aggressive as usual but kept getting outrallied and I would always hit a shot into the net. I was losing 6-0 2-0 then I was like screw it and decided to just counterpunch (read: push) and hit slices, drop shots, moonballs, etc. which really threw my opponent off and I ended up winning 0-6 6-3 7-5 I guess changing up your tactics can really work after all. Though it felt weird to not play my usual game I guess sometimes you just have to adjust when nothing else is working.

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

In a college doubles match, my team was down 67 35 and we won 67 75 63. I know it's not really a huge comeback just looking at the score, but our opponents were winning all of their games to love and we were barely eking out games after like 5 deuces. I guess it was less of a big comeback and more of a "how the hell did we win this match?" It certainly felt like the biggest comeback I've ever made because we were being totally outplayed.

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

In a league championship match my partner and I lost the first set badly (6-1) and roared back to win 6-1 6-2 in the second and the third.

In terms of coming back from a big deficit in a match? said partner and I came back from down a set and 5-2 numerous times. In the state tournament we were down 6-0 5-0 before winning 0-6 7-5 6-0. They never had a match point.

The one match we should have come back in? we were down 6-1 3-0 before winning the second 7-6 and taking a 3-0 lead in the third before losing in a tight 3rd set breaker.(this match was against the eventual state doubles champions)

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

My biggest comeback was much closer than the score had indicated. In the match, i lost the first set 6-0, and i was down 3-0 in the second with my opponent serving at duece before a rain delay. Although i had lost all nine games i new that i still had a chance because 7 of those nine games went to duece and had several break and game point chances.after the two hour rain delay, i managed to get back in the second set at 2-3 before my opponent stretched the lead again at 5-2. I won the next three games and ended up taking the set 10-8 in the tiebreak after saving match points at 4-6, 5-6, and 7-8, before winning the last three points to take the set. In the super tiebreak we again stretched beyond the given ending when i served at 14-14, both of us already having saved a couple match points, and on that point i hit my only ace of the entire 3 hr 45 minute match to set up my fourth match point on which my opponent missed a passing shot in the net. Despite my comeback efforts, i was beaten in the very next round 6-1, 6-4 in a much less contested match.
