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

I've saved match-points quite a few times, especially in the last year or so. Most of the time it comes when down a set and the second-set gets quite tight and the opponent obviously gets the chance to close out the match. However I would say my greatest ever comeback would be a 7-6, 6-7, 7-6 win I had in the summer last year on grass in the local box league. The surface wasn't offering much of a bounce and the ball was coming through the court so quickly that day. It will come as no surprise that there were no breaks, and I would estimate nearly an ace per service game for both my opponent and I.

The comeback part of it was in the final set tie-breaker where I was 6-1* down and he had five match points with two to come on his serve. I had to work very hard to save the first couple of match points on my own serve. Two second-serves that weren't especially good, but I managed to get into the rallies early and come through the court with powerful forehands and force an error from him in the first match point and put away a straight-forward chance at the net in the second match point. At this moment, I was playing without pressure because I knew my opponent would likely bang down an unreturnable serve in one of the next two points, so I thought my chances were limited. At *6-3, he only rolled in the first serve, which surprised me, but I was able to hit a commanding slice back and get into the net to execute a good enough stop volley from the response. He double-faulted in the next point, so it was back on serve in the breaker. I was pumped and hit two excellent first serves to force a match point of my own. One was an ace out-wide and the other yielded an easy fore-court backhand put away. Poor fella double-faulted again to give me the match, but I had to play some great points to get back in it, but also get a lot if luck with him double-faulting twice at the death.

It's a sequence of points I remember really vividly and pretty sure I always will.

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

I think my best one was saving seven match points as a kid, but that wasn't really a comeback, just a really tight match. And for some reason I'm better at remembering my own chokes than those of my opponents!

This season I started a match going down 0-6 0-3 15-40 because I was seriously hung over and ended up winning 0-6 6-3 6-2

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

In a final a month ago, I started out a bit passive and lost the first set against a guy in singles who was hitting lines and getting netcords in his favor. First set 3-6. Then I finally got a break point at 1-1 in the second and after that I started getting pumped and nailing winners left and right. Won the set 6-1. In the third, he took a long break and got a new can of balls (which is not a rule for the tournament, he did it because fresher balls benefit him). I lost my flow and came out flat again making silly errors. Went down 0-3 before firing back to finally win the title 6-4 in the third Not a big comeback, but it was tough considering it was a final, I wanted to win, and was annoyed that I was practically let it slip away at 0-3 in the third. But it was a great fight.

In Mixed, me and my partner were down 6-7 2-5 and then we started to play back and I practically played singles. We won 6-7 7-5 [10-5] They were clueless how to react to me doing that.

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

In a doubles match, I was paired with a 13 year old boy and I've never played with him before 3 of us on the court were over 25 We were down 0-5 but we somehow fought back to win the set That was so hilarious.

'm referring to a comeback within a game or match...not a player coming back after an injury, etc.
