Second Serve


(December 13, 2011) The year is coming to a close and as tennis fans we’ve been blessed with unbelievable matches. Whether your favorite player is Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, or Novak Djokovic, you can only appreciate the efforts of every player on tour when they dig deeper than they ever have before to shock their opponent. Let's take a look at the Top 5 Comeback Wins of 2011.

1. Novak Djokovic trailed two sets to none, but fought his way to a fifth set where he was down a break and two match points. No one could have predicted what followed.

2. Again, Roger Federer finds his way on the wrong end of an epic comeback. The Swiss had been 179-0 when leading an opponent two sets to none. That all changed at the quarterfinals of Wimbledon when Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga shocked the world to take down Federer in a 5-set thriller.

3. Andy Murray was down a set in the Finals of Tokyo to Rafael Nadal and everything was going the Spaniards way. So it seemed.

4. Robin Soderling trailed Lleyton Hewitt in the 2nd round of Wimbledon two sets to none, while the Aussie showed flashes of greatness. The tides would turn as the match began to slip away from Hewitt.

5. Andy Murray makes the list again as he was in serious trouble during 2nd round play at the US Open against Robin Haase. The Scot calmed commotion as he fought back from a two set to none deficit.

It's been a wild year in 2011 and all we can hope is 2012 brings some of the same. Do you agree with these comebacks that made the list?
