Choke and comeback in the same match...

I was playing my 1st round of a local league playoff. Went way up in the 1st set, 5-1. I was winning so easily I lost my focus, started wondering what was on tv, thinking about everything except finishing the match. Well, I lose the set 7-5 and "woke up" down 5-2, double match point on my opponent's serve. All he has to do is win one of the next two points. He doubles to make it 40-30, babied a serve in to my forehand that I crushed for a return winner. I rolled of the next 5 games and won the 3rd set 6-1.

I never should have let myself get into that spot.

Two funny things about: my opponent threw two of his racquets into a retention pond. I ended winning the whole league playoff/tournament.
