Weird matches?

Has anyone ever had really weird matches where they have played really badly but still won?

I had one on Saturday where I could hardly hit the ball properly, I had alot of pain in my shoulder and it even went numb for a while!!!

Somehow I still managed to win 6-1 6-2!

When I was a junior, I was playing a tournament and my first match was on saturday morning. Having a relatively bad hangover, I was totally out of timing and rhythm, and lost the first set 6-2. Somehow I pulled myself together and won the next two 6-3, 6-2, I think. Not a weird match, but funny, anyway! Oh, and I lost the second match...Guess I deserved that.

Re: Weird matches?

Playing with a hangover is rough...usually I'll just try to hit around or play doubles...

Probably my strangest score in a match I won 0-6 6-1 6-4, also I once won the first set in a tiebreak, held serve in the first game of the second then dropped 12 straight games to lose the match, that was an awful day, out of nowhere I couldnt keep a ball in the court.

Re: Weird matches?

I remember a match. Had a big hangover and hadn't slept at night and had to play the final of a local tournament. The guy was highly ranked for me but still I played a big match. I ran totally out of gas up two breaks in the third and eventually lost it. I knew the guy, who was a wanker and he couldn't accept it was that tight and told me in the end he couldn't play properly having done the party till...midnight ! It was a matter of jokes with friends after that...

Re: Weird matches?

Probably one of the matches that I played in a tournament final, where I was 6-0, 5-1 40*-0 down, and promptly came back to win that set 7-5, and then the thrid 6-1. Even stranger was the fact that the only game I lost was when I served for the match at 5-0 in the third. One of the most bizarre matches I have ever been involved in!

Re: Weird matches?

my weird match: i felt really shitty that day, and managed to beat my friend, who defeated my one day earlier, i won 6-2, 6-2! That was my best score. And then other friend came, who defeated me that summer 6-0, 6-1 and i defeated him 6-1, 5-1 40-0 ret. And another one, i played against third friend on clay outside and lost 6-1, 6-3, then came on hard court indoors and defeated him 7-5, 6-3

Re: Weird matches?

I was playing at a national G3 about two years ago.
I had lost first set 7-6, and was down 6-3 in the second set tiebreak. I won that set by 8-6, and the last by 6-0. Happiest day in tennis . Passed to Qf coming from qualies with that match.


Final of U-21 at my club (i was only 15), was 5-1 40-0 down, and came back to win 7-5 6-1.

Was down 6-2 5-0 at a national G3, won second by 7-6, and constructed a lead of 4-0 in third. I lost 7-5 in the third

Re: Weird matches?

I played teh worst match of my life against this guy who kep stealing calls, I dont mean on the line calls I mean 2-1ft in calls, those who where watching the match couldnt believe it, I was so mad at how bad I was playing that I didnt care that match for the bad calls, I was just to upset with myself. I lost the first set 6-1, was up 5-1 40-15 in the second, then missed a smash on Sp, then double faulted, and lost 7-6(0), pathetic pathetic... worst match I have ever played I was missing shots 1 meter long... its embarassing to remember, lol

Federer did that against Nadal when he was serving for the match @ Wimbledon. I guess it's just nerves.

Re: Weird matches?

For me, it's a sequence of matches. In the U-16 age bracket I beat this kid in the first round of a tournament 6-0, 6-0 in quick fashion. The very next week we played against each other again in the final of a tournament and I won 6-1, 2-6, 7-6(14). I was very lucky to win in because in the third set tie-break, he came into to the net against me on his match point, and I hit a passing shot that was going long, but he nicked it.

Tim Henman--Gael Monfils--James Blake--Donald Young--Rafael Nadal--Jo-Wilfried Tsonga--John Isner--Janko Tipsarevic--Richard Gasquet.

Past experience. He knew how to play you this next time. A win is a win..is a win.

Re: Weird matches?

The weirdest match (actually tournament) I ever played was a doubles match. It was at a southern (Southern United States)level tournament. My friend and I had never played doubles together ever, and we were the strangest duo. He is about six inches shorter than I am and probably 40 or 50lbs lighter than me. Before our last match started, my friend rode onto the court on a little circus bicycle. Strangely enough, we made it to the semifinals of the tournament losing to the number one seed. What is so strange is that two people who have never played together before made it really far in a big tournament.
