Re: What's the strangest set you've ever played?

yesterday i was up 5:0 in the first set only to be back 5:6 a half an hour later. i saved myself in the TB where i got up to 6:0 only to loose the set 6:8. epic chocking and really bad serving did the job.

It's more like a display of an awful match up, brainless tactics and chokefests.

Re: What's the strangest set you've ever played?

Yesterday I played a match with a friend..I served at *3-5 in the first set, then I won 4 games in a row to keep it 7-5, saving from 0-40 at 5-5!
In the second set he was 4-0 up and then served at 5-2. I broke him but on *3-5 I had to save 3-4 set points, then I also won the second set 7-5.

Juan Martin Del Potro: Simply the best!

Re: What's the strangest set you've ever played?

Not really one set... but I lost a set 0-6 then won the next one the other day

In sets, I was down 5-1, came back to 5-5, got broken for 5-6, made it to 30-30 on their serve, brought them in, then hit a clean winner into the open court with a huge margin. He waited about 4 seconds, then the bastard called it out! (It was about 3 feet in) I totally lost it at that point, won like 3 of the next 20 points to go down a set, 0-3 and break point before engaging in racquet abuse to come back and win 5-7 6-4 6-3
