What do U think who did best in come back from a high lay down maybe some matchpoints?
Let's say in the last 20 years: Was it Sanchez who usually had to fight hard in every slam...
or Serena (Just see what she did to justine)

Maybe Graf, Rubin or Justine?

Dementieva's comeback against Henin was pretty impressive at Indian Wells 2006. Granted, the wind conditions were affecting Justine, but, nonetheless, Elena came back against one of the most mentally tough players on the tour.

She was down 2-6, 2-5 and came back to win 2-6, 7-5, 7-5.

Monica Seles. She was so mentally tough, not unlike Chris Evert and definitely mentally stronger than any player from her generation. Ofcourse since most posters in GM have been fans since post-2000, they'll pick the more recent players.
