Greatest comeback of all time? Can't Post or Reply Privately

British tennis player Tara Moore, the world No 479, was on the verge of a humiliating thrashing by the French third seed Jessika Ponchet at the ITF World Tour event in Sunderland, losing 6-0, 5-0 and facing a match point at 30-40, yet managed to turn it around and won 0-6, 7-6(7), 6-3.

That certainly ranks up there with the 3rd Test between England and Australia in 1981

Think we've just had another one!

Terrific scenes at Augusta, and a real treat to see an all-time great doing it once again after so many years and so much adversity. Well played Tiger Woods.

How about this one for a comeback -

Phil Healey running the final leg of a womens 4 x 400 meters relay race in a ulster college track and field meeting.

Didnt look as if she had a prayer and comes from way back to win and gets the commentators a bit excited

Basketball isn't really my thing but this comeback in a US college game ain't bad. Winning from 5 points down with 2.8 seconds to go.

Just because you're paranoid, it doesn't mean they're not out to get you.

I think Liverpool beating Barcelona 4-0 to reach the CL final can be added to the list.

Not 'other sports' as such but the comeback at Anfield tonight, topped off with a moment of genius to outfox the best in the world, surely transcends football. Even by Liverpool's standards this was St Etienne and AC Milan rolled into one, with a big cherry on top!

Add Tottenham Hotspur to the list now. 3 down away from home with 45 minutes to play.

Ah, the joys of the internet. I was listening to Radio 5's online commentary which appeared to be a good 2-3 minutes behind FWP. When that put up the final score as 3-2 I wandered off to the kitchen, only to hear the commentators screeching at the Spurs goal. "It'll be offside", I thought...

It's getting silly now!
After this, and the drama at City in the QF and only squeaking through the group stage by the finest of margins, you wonder if their name's on the trophy.

I can add another sport to the list, gaelic football.

A schools match admittedly (albeit in a provincial semi final so a big deal), but coming from 26 points down at half time to win by four is pretty special none the less.

On the day the great Niki Lauda died, worth adding his comeback in 1976 to the list, racing again just six weeks after suffering severe burns following a near fatal crash at the German Grand Prix in Nurburgring, being so close to death he was read his last rites two days later, and then going on to win the drivers championship again the following year.
