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

I had a absolute bloody shocker yesterday . I played a guy at singles at my club. I had been coaching in the morning and stayed up quite late the night before ( smoking at the minute as well). Anyway . This guy has not taken a set off me since January when he won a disjointed set on a tiebreak ( wet court and a rain delay), anyway yesterday , we played the first set ( easy 6-1) then I raced into a 5-1 lead in the second set . Breathing a little heavy but a solid lead. Then out of nowhere he started pushing and slicing the ball and throwing in some net approaches and BOOM . 5-1 lead get turned into losing a set 7-5 absolutely stunned. Did'nt have the toughness to close out a 5-1 lead. I did play 4 physical sets the day before but still that's terrible.

The biggest choke by my opponent or my biggest win was during a Table Tennis match.

It was a game for 21 points, and my opponent was leading me by 20-13 ,1 point to win the game with 5 big serves left of his, and miraculously I won the next 7 points and brought the game to deuce and then he went advantage and again I won 3 points in a row to seal the deal 23-21.

My biggest choke was playing the college champ on a Table Tennis match again, it was a College Championship Quarter Finals match and I am facing the defending champ, the I was leading him 14-1 for a game of 21 points and he came back from that to make it 20-20 and the match went 11 deuces and I had 7 Match points yet I failed to convert any of them to lose the match in the end, he won the championship again and defended it the next year as well, very few people in my college has beaten him [to my knowledge only 2] and that includes all friendlies , yet when I had a chance I failed to seize the opportunity.
