In the first round of the W25 ITF event in Sunderland, Great Britain, Moore was down 0-6, 0-5, 30-40 before ultimately taking the final two sets 7-6(7), 6-3.
Reminds me of Elena Dementieva vs Henin at Indian Wells (06?)

Funny enough, Moore is scheduled to play the same opponent, Jessika Ponchet, in the first round of doubles.
ouch... reminds me of mari jo fernandez vs gabriela sabatini... but this is worse! :oops:

How did the letcord turn the match?
Don't you just play the point again if the net is touched?
No advantage to either player?
Unless he meant netcord winner.

Either way, I was only joking around with my comment about the match being fixed. I don't follow ITF events whatsoever. I guess the comedy is just lost on some people.

It was a winner.

Ponchet got miffed when what should have been a matchpoint ball rather proceeded to clip the net and bounce on the line

Only Jesus can "fix" that.

I actually saved a setpoint against my friend in a similar situation. We were playing a superbreaker and I want to say he was serving to me at 9-8. I just kind of bunted a return back that clipped the tape and bounced over for a netcord winner. Ended up winning the breaker 12-10, but I felt kind of bad because that ball had no business going over the net. :-D

I love the way tennis is scored on many levels.
On the set level for example, it matters little if you lost 0-6 or 6-7 (24-26), you still lose the set either way.
And the part I love best is that you can even the match by winning the next set no matter what your winning score is.

Andreescu staged a similar comeback a few weeks ago when she lost the first set and was down 1-5 in the second.
She ended up winning the match. :)

Us Brits only hear about her when she plays Wimbledon and loses in the 1st or 2nd round and of course this match.:)
I don't follow British scrubs but just happen to know Tara Moore because she got New York Times attention for being the lesbian wife of the Swiss WTA pro Conny Perrin (the couple are both scrubs but managed to get the attention of NYT for supposedly being the first two active WTA players to be engaged and married.
