Is Tara Moore’s fightback from 0-6, 0-5 (30-40) down the greatest tennis comeback?
You are 0-6, 0-5 (30-40) down in your tennis match so you might as well throw in the towel, right? Not if you are Tara Moore.
World No 471 Moore was up against during an ITF World Tour event in Sunderland against third seed Jessika Ponchet.
And by up against it, we mean in deep s*** as she was facing a match point at 0-6, 0-5 (30-40), but she somehow managed to turn things around to claim an extraordinary 0-6, 7-6, 6-3 victory.
After the match the 26-year-old tweeted that the result was “never in doubt”.
Lololol 🙂🙃🙂🙃 never in doubt #dontcallitacomeback
