Best matches you've seen in the 2000+ era?

Mine would have to be:
Sampras vs Federer 2001 Wimbledon,
Gaudio vs Coria 2004 French Open,
Safin vs Federer 2004 Masters Cup(the one where Federer wasted 7 MP's, it ended 20-18 on a tie break),
Nadal vs Federer 2006 Rome
Roddick vs El Aynaouni 2003 Australian Open
Safin vs Federer 2005 Australian Open (what a match)
Nadal vs Coria 2005 Rome
Agassi vs Blake 2005 US Open (lots of winners)
Federer vs Nadal 2007 Wimbledon (awesome match, Nadal finally played better on grass against Federer)
Federer vs Nadal 2007 Masters Cup (never have I seen such a big difference between the 2, utter humilation)
There is one more that I thought was amazing but I'm not sure who it was, Hewit was playing in 2002 Masters Cup final against someone and I remember him winning the first two sets like 7-6 7-6 and then he was slaughtered in the next two then he won the last, anyone know who he played against?
What about your favourite matches in 2000+?

It isn't one of the best threads in MTF history.

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career
My favorite stats
Longest matches
Match points
Tie-breaks
Aces

Re: Best matches you've seen in the 2000+ era?

Favorite matches:

Kuerten vs. Federer FO 2004

Djokovic vs. Stepanek USO 2007

Djokovic vs. Federer AO 2008

Djokovic vs. Tsonga AO 2008

Murray vs Federer Dubai 2008

Fish vs. Federer IW 2008

Nole fan: "...most Fedtards seem to be very rabid and rude." (I agree 100%)

You can bet Djokovic's mom just screamed "Another king is dead" right about now - in the remotest corner - of her bathroom - followed by "The other one is buried." (from tennisplanet.me, following Madrid 2011 Djokovic d. Nadal 7-5 6-4)
