Who really deserves the figther "tag" winning after being down 0-2 sets?
Who are the biggest "chockers" blowing the match after leading 2-0 sets?



Data includes best-of-five matches played in Grand Slams, Davis Cup, Masters Cup, Olympic Games, Masters Series and other ATP tournaments (e.g. Vienna, Stuttgart) since 1983 up to US Open QFs 2014

BTW, I've done this for a database computer course at university last week together with 3 other people in a group. So I wouldn't claim this is from an official source and thus could be considered as 100% accurate. But at the same time I have some high trust that it won't be too far away from the truth either.

That may be also right, if you use different parameters and don't count the retirements in the fifth sets his opponents had as win. Krickstein's listing is:

Australian Open 1995, R128, Krickstein def. (6) Edberg 6-7(6) 5-7 6-4 7-6(5) 6-4
Roland Garros 1992, R64, (13) Krickstein def. Malivei Washington 4-6 5-7 6-4 7-6(7) 6-3
Wimbledon 1995, R128, Krickstein def. (Q) Bergstrom 4-6 0-6 7-6(4) 6-2 6-2
US Open 1983, R32, Krickstein def. (15) Gerulaitis 3-6 3-6 6-4 6-2 6-4

Canas made a 0-2 comeback once, and this only time was against Henman at the Australian Open 2004, R32, beating Henman 6-7(5) 5-7 7-6(3) 7-5 9-7.

His losses after a 2-0 set lead are listed as the following:

Roland Garros 2001, R16, (6) Hewitt def. Canas 3-6 6-7(3) 6-2 6-3 6-3
(one of Hewitt's two 0-2 deficit comebacks, the other one was against Federer in the Davis Cup 2003)
Wimbledon 1998, R64, Clavet def. Canas 6-7(2) 2-6 7-6(4) 6-1 6-4
Wimbledon 2002, R64, F. Lopez def. (10) Canas 4-6 2-6 7-6(7) 7-5 10-8
Davis Cup 1999, ARG vs VEN, Ruah def. Canas 3-6 3-6 7-6(3) 6-3 6-3

I was never expected Martin and Escude so high! :eek: Escude has win 5 matches of the 22 back 0:2 sets? That's strong and he is still active and almost every times injury.

Canas blowing the lead and not coming back from of it? A wrong "fighter" here.
Hewitt also overrated from 0:2 comebacks, only two. Unbelivalbe.

makro120
04-18-2005, 10:56 AM
The right way to count who is a fighter is to see how many times he has been 2-0 down and not only how many times he has comeback. LIke if someone has been 20 times down 2-0 down and come back 5 (25%) times it is more impressive than someone who has been 50 times 2-0 down aqnd come back 10 times.

Neely
04-18-2005, 11:00 AM
Jogy, I think stats are not everything when talking about somebody's ambition or fighting spirit and normally I think Canas still puts considerably lots of effort into his matches even though the numbers at these specific situations (coming back from 0-2 and blowing after 2-0) don't seem to favour him here.

But actually the funny thing for me here is that the "poor and pathetic backhand" Feliciano "I'm such a pretty girl, let me admire myself in a mirror" Lopez runs a 6-2 five set record since 2002, and two of these six wins within the last 3 years have been grinding 5 setters that went the distance and that have come against "the big fighter" Guillermo "I never give up" Canas.

Exactly, I agree with you that this would be also a good sort of ranking doing the ranking not by absolute values, but by "comeback percentage" as you mentioned.

However, with a little bit maths of your own you can easily get the percentage because I've included the total times somebody was down 0-2 sets in brackets.

That's true. Australian Open 2005 included, Hewitt was down 0-2 sets just 15 times in his career so far, most recently against Gaudio and Federer 2004 (Roland Garros and US Open).

I am surprised to see so many big servers like Becker, Todd MArtin, Sampras, Rafter, Goran Ivanisevic....

I guess if you have a big serve you simply need to serve to stay in the match and not really fight your way back like baseliners need to. It is easier for baseliners to give up I think, because it takes alot of stamina and you need to fight for every point.

I loved Becker but you are right about his arrogance. He could've been a much greater player if he had put in more work off the court. Yes, other than indoors and grass, always, always the slow start.

I will always remember his comback against Derrick Rostagno in the U.S. Open as I was on the grounds that day but not at his match. He also had great comebacks against Andre Agassi in Davis Cup down 6-5 in the third and against Courier in an indoor tourny in Brussels I believe winning 7-6, 7-6, and 7-5 int he final sets.

In a lot of other matches, Becker didn't have much of a fighting spirit. Against McEnroe (both of them) in Australia, against Haarhuis at the USO and some others.

US Open 2000, R16, Martin def. Moya 6-7(3) 6-7(7) 6-1 7-6(6) 6-2


Overall, Todd Martin was quite a hard worker and a marathon guy who didn't mind going the distance. Not only that he managed to win these 9 matches, but also his overall 5 set record is quite impressive and not too shabby. Through his career, "The Senator" has 39 five set matches under his belt and he managed to win 23 (59%) of them.

Yes, his comebacks against Moya and Rusedski were the two biggest because it was not only a first round, but these happened in the round of last 16.

Thanks a lot. I wish I could find a way to get some of these matches. I remember watching his 03 US Open match against Ferrero where he was down 2 sets, won the next 2, but then was down a break in the 5th and b/c of his good record I thought he'd come back, but he had some bad luck trying to break at 5-3. I still can't figure out why he played so many 5 set matches.

No real reason for me to bump this thread, except to point out a top player from the past with a rather bad habit of losing from two sets to love up:

Davis Cup 70
Vilas lost to Cornejo, P. (CHI)
6-3, 6-0, 2-6, 2-6, 2-6

RG 72, R16
Vilas lost to Solomon, H. (USA)
6-3, 10-8, 2-6, 4-6, 4-6

Buenos Aires 72, F
Vilas lost to Meiler, K. (GER)
7-6, 6-2, 4-6, 4-6, 4-6

Rome 74, S
Vilas lost to Borg, B. (SWE)
6-2, 6-3, 3-6, 4-6, 5-7

Roland Garros 74, R32
Vilas lost to Orantes, M. (ESP)
6-3, 6-3, 6-7, 3-6, 2-6

US Open 75, S
Vilas lost to Orantes, M. (ESP)
6-4, 6-1, 2-6, 5-7, 4-6

Wimbledon 83, R128
Vilas lost to Odizor, N. (NGR)
6-3, 7-5, 6-7, 5-7, 2-6


Seven times in all, and the first one there was his very first professional match, if the ITF database is to be believed. Likewise, the match he lost against Meiler was the final of his home tournament, where he was to completely dominate in later years...

Inaccurate.
Not true, there are only very few matches during the last 25 years in which a player leading 2-0 sets retired in the third or fourth set.

Applying this rule would not change a lot, Costa and Mansdorff would have one more comeback, Ramesh Krishnan and Brett Stevens would be new in the list with 4 comebacks.

No wonder Boris is a significant name despite having only won six slams. He was always a fighter, though a hot head but he was an amazing competitor I did not know he was that great a fighter.

Unfortunately on the other hand Edberg was never mentally that much of a fighter, nevertheless his silky serve and volley game was a pretty thing. A great athlete he was indeed.

fed served for the match in the third set at *5-4 but got broken and lost the TB.

Also Nalbandian's comeback against Murray in 2005 wimbledon is classic one as well.(Murray was leading 4-2* in the fourth but couln't hold on to the serve and nalbadian made him run all over the place and beat him.

Unfortunately on the other hand Edberg was never mentally that much of a fighter, nevertheless his silky serve and volley game was a pretty thing. A great athlete he was indeed.

Edberg won several Grand Slam matches after being down a break of service in the fifth and deciding set. Notable examples include the 1988 Wimbledon semifinal against Miloslav Mečíř, the 1989 French Open semifinal against Boris Becker, and the 1990 Wimbledon final against Becker.

In the 1992 U.S. Open, Edberg did it in three consecutive matches, against Richard Krajicek in the fourth round, Ivan Lendl in the quarterfinals, and Chang in the semifinals.

Just wanted to remind of Albert Costa 3 times comeback from 0-2 RG 2003:

R128 Roitman, Sergio (ARG ) 181 6-7(3) 2-6 7-5 6-2 6-2
R32 Lapentti, Nicolas (ECU ) 66 4-6 4-6 6-3 6-4 6-4
Q Robredo, Tommy (ESP ) 20 2-6 3-6 6-4 7-5 6-2
Correct. Three comebacks from 0-2 sets and an overall of four five setters on his way to the semifinal. Not too shabby...
One of only two men in the Open Era to do it 3 times in the same tournament (Escude, AO 1998), and the real funny thing is that these are the only occasions he came back from a 0-2 set deficit in his entire career :lol: Maybe it was the desire to hold on to his surprising (and only) slam title from the year before.
The #1 all-time spot here belongs to French legend Henri Cochet, who in Wimbledon 1927 came back from two sets down in each of his last three matches to take the title.

The ultimate chock...Ljubo at AO...up 2 sets to 0 and 5-1 in 3rd...serving it out...and lost in 5
R32 Ferreira, Wayne (RSA ) 43 6-4 6-4 6-7(3) 3-6 5-7
At least Ljubicic squandered against someone known for this type of matches... I was actually surprised to see Mansdorf so high on the comeback winner list, anyway in RG 1992 he had perhaps the worst loss of his career: leading 2-0 and 4-0 in the 3rd(!) against a journeyman named Markus Zillner (#161 at the time, #143 career high), he lost the 3rd 8-10 on a TB, was bageled(!) in the 4th, was given an escape lane when play was then stopped due to darkness, but lost the decider too, 3-6 :o

Troicki is the king of the chokers. It just goes to show how important the mental side of the game is. Being strong mentally is like having an extra shot in your armoury.

Soderling's done it twice before, hasn't done it for 6 years which is presumably why he forgot in his interview.

He had 10 comebacks from down 2 sets in best of 5 matches on all different surfaces:

1983 – Vitas Gerulaitis U.S. Open
1984 – Bruce Manson U.S. Open
1986 – Karel Novacek U.S. Open
1986 – Paul Annacone U.S. Open
1988 – Andre Agassi Key Biscayne
1989 – Luiz Mattar Key Biscayne
1989 – Alexander Volkov – U.S. Open
1992 – MaliVai Washington – French Open
1995 – Stefan Edberg – Australian Open
1995 – Christian Bergstrom – Wimbledon

Out of these players, Edberg and Agassi were all time greats, Gerulaitis was very good, and Novacek, Annacone, Volkov and Washington were solid. Only Manson, Mattar, and Bergstrom weren't that great.

Does anyone know who has the 2nd most comebacks from 2 sets down or if there are compiled stats on such comebacks?

Yes, he is at 7. There will be a complete update after RG, there are some numbers that need more checking.

He is 7-4 in this regard. Murray, Nalbandian and Hewitt are on 6.
