Ok, here's my story. A tennis buddy of mine thinks that he can beat me and have beaten once and taking another set from me. We played a lot, over 20 times and I usually get the better of him. The one time he did beat me, I was getting over a flu, but he played really well. Then he took another set from me. Anyway, this one time we played, I got bored and decide to challenge myself. I let him go up 5-0 and 40-0, with him serving. I then started playing and won 12 points in row. I beat him 7-5. He couldn't sleep for the next 2 weeks. He hated me for the longest time too...now we're buddies again. He's the kind that can't except the fact that anyone is better than him. He's only a 4.5, but I think this is my best comeback ever.
I've been a tennis bum for half my life.
I'll just be a bum for the other half.

Wow, what a comeback.  One time I came back from being down a break at 4-3 deuce!  If I would've lost that game I would've faked an injury and retired. :;:-|

That is a nice comeback.

Jeffro who posts here sometimes had the best comeback I have ever seen.

We play together on a 4.5 league and we were at the State Championships.  We had won the Ohio Valley Districts 2 weekends previous.

We were in the finals.  If we win, we go to Sectionals, if we lose we go home.  We had lost 2 matches and won 2 matches.  It all came down to the last doubles court.  Jeffro and Dave were playing.  There is no thrid set, they make you play a super tie-breaker instead, first one to 10 points by 2.

Jeffro and Dave were down 3-9.  

4-9
5-9
6-9
7-9
8-9

At this point in time I had to hide behind one of my team mates because I couldn't watch.

9-9  WHOOOOOO HOOOOOOO!!!

9-10 The horror!!!

10-10 Whoooo hooo

11-10

12-10

I couldn't believe it!  7 match points saved!  We went to Sectionals and then ended up going to Nationals.  What a match!
Good Luck on the Court!!!

How did we do at nationals?  We never made it out of our bracket, but it was a great time.  Both me and Scott (our top singles players) had injuries at the time and the competition was pretty good, so we got kicked around a little.

I had injuries but they didn't affect my play.  What did effect my play the first match was the 4000 degree heat, I think I should of won that match.  My next match I was outplayed, but it was at 6:00 in the evening and mucho cooler.   He crushed the ball and I was basically trying to run it all down.  Lot 6-7, 6-3 or something like that.  Tough guy, he was really nice too.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

Jeffro and Scott

That has got to be one of the wildest comeback stories at such a critical stage that I've ever heard.  And if I recall, didn't the other team serve an ace at like 10-9 only to be called for a foot fault (or some wild event like that?).  That's just like you guys to claim a cheap victory like that  :lol-sign: ..just kidding.

At sectionals (after states) Darly and Vaughn came back from 2-5 in the 2nd set (after losing the first set) and then 5-9 in the third set tie-breaker.  It wasn't an ace, but the guy double faulted on the second serve.

We were destined to go to Nationals yo!
Good Luck on the Court!!!
