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

Biggest one was probably last year. I was down 60 42 and came back to win 06 76(4) 60. I had beaten him the year before though and I was losing then as well so I knew I could still defeat him and that's what probably helped me a lot.

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

This is a good one. So it was a USTA tournament on green clay, I won first round easily and won a huge match in round of 16, 6-4, 6-3. In the quarters, I was playing a kid from Florida... Good player, but I was playing my best tennis last year from March -> August (this tournament was in July ) and I knew I was capable of winning. First set I went down 0-5 (I must've underestimated him ) And I ended up coming back saving set points on 3-5 and 4-5 to win the set in a tiebreak. I ended up winning the match 7-6, 6-3 to make the semis.

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

How can you guys remember all the details? Once I competed in a badminton tournament in my school and I couldn't keep my eyes off the scoreboard. I don't even remember the final scores of my matches.

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

Once I fought back from 5-0 in the third set saving 4 match points at 5-3! In third set tie break I was down 4-1! Final score was 6-2 4-6 7-6(6)!
My biggest choke is when I was up 4-0 and 40-30 in the third set! Didn't have any match point! Lost that time 7-5 1-6 7-6(4)!

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

I was down 3-6, 2-5, 3 MP, saved those, got to a tiebreak, down 4 more match points, saved those. In the third set, I was down 4-5, down 2 MP and saved those and came back to win 3-6, 7-6(6), 7-5

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

in my local clubs tournament final i was down 4-6, 4-5, 15-40, saved the 2 mp's and won the 2nd set 7-5 to then go 0-4 down in the 3rd set. my opponent got tired and i ground out 6 straight games for a 2.30+ hour final win.

Yeah...on a normal day, I would have crushed this guy, but I was just so nervous playing my first match at first singles, that I was kind of distracted. He had literally....no weapons....apart from foot speed and he was taught to slice everything.

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

My best comeback in a tournament was:
It was the first round of my tourny last year, I was down 5-3 in first, came back to 6-5 then lost 7-6, in the tiebreak I led 4-1 and then was down 6-4, I had no set points.
I won the second, and then went down 2 breaks in the third at 4-1 and then was down 5-3, rolled off the next 4 games for the win. My forehand and serve were non-existent, so my backhand saved me

Against ITZ, I am sure I had better ones, but I can't remember.

Another fun one from a match was I won the first set in a tiebreak 7-6, lost the second 6-0, and took the third in a match tiebreak. I was exhausted in the second after that long first set, so I tanked.

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

Me and my brother (tennisbuddy12) played a doubles match against a top 8 High school tennis team and were down 3-6,2-5 (or 3-5)...we somehow managed to get to 5-5 before going down 5-6 and then won the set 7-6(4). In hot conditions we went down 3-5 and came back to a tiebreak in which i served 2 aces in a row to tie it at 6-6 before we won 3-6,7-6(4),7-6(6).

I think we saved like 4 match points in that match..

Also I was down in the SF of a tournament 6-2,2-1 and i was serving 0-40 2nd serve..i was nervous and hot and i took a breather and won the second 6-3 and the 10-point tiebreaker i saved 4 mp and won 2-6,6-3,[15-13] against a very good rival..i played him the following week and was down 1-6,0-2,0-40 and down 4-2 in third and won 1-6,6-2,6-4

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

In recent memory I would say last month I came back after thinking I was done for in the second set.
I was trailing an opponent who I rarely win sets against (let alone matches) 4-6, 2-4 but managed to win the match 4-6, 7-5, 6-0. The final set (bagel) was a pretty big confidence booster for me.

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

I think my biggest comeback took place about 3 years ago. 1 was down 2/6 1/5 and came back to win 2/6 7/6 6/1. Thats been by far my biggest comeback.
