Default Describe your best choking moment

For me, it was when I played in the first round, I was playing against a guy with no experience but yet I let him win the game. I had the lead on a dozen occasions but for some reason I just let him win the game. The guy saved 8 sets points on my serve! and my serve is usually the best part of my game.

Just recently I can think of a match where I won the first set 7-5 but only after blowing a 4-0 lead. Next set I lost 6-7 (5-7) after being up in the tiebreak 5-4. Not a terrible choke I suppose but disappointing.

Playing doubles last year with a ambidextrous partner we stormed back from 5-1 down in the first set to win that 7-5 and then lost the second and third to love and 2 ! What's worse was virtually every game went to deuce ! Singles wise I seem to enjoy clawing back deficits . A couple Saturdays ago I went 3-0 up on a teenager at one of the clubs I play at . He is young and I felt a little bad as he seemed a bit shell shocked that I was 3-0 up . Did,t matter thought as he won the next 5 . I Then held nervously then he held out 6-4 . Being 6 foot one getting lobbed by a lad who's about five foot three is not fun .

I used to have a lot of chokes, but not anymore since I stopped training and caring

Worst one in recent memory was 5 years or something ago. I was down 2-5 in the first set, saved a SP, won the set 7-6 and led 5-2 in the second. But then it happened, I missed 2 MP, lost the set 5-7 and the third set 0-6
