Federer's greatest grass court match

Which match on grass do you think Federer played his best tennis (i.e. what was his most dominating performance?)?

Roddick semis, and his Ancic quarter final in 2006.

Re: Federer's greatest grass court match

When he drilled Gasquet and Henman in 06

Tim Henman--Gael Monfils--James Blake--Donald Young--Rafael Nadal--Jo-Wilfried Tsonga--John Isner--Janko Tipsarevic--Richard Gasquet.

Re: Federer's greatest grass court match

Probably the day he beat Sampras at Wimbledon, unless Pete had an off day. The last two Wimbldon finals certainly were great matches. Oops! I thought we were talking about great matches, not one sided ones. A great match though is one where a player has to play their best to beat another great player, playing their best tennis.

Re: Federer's greatest grass court match

I'd echo what others say.

v. Roddick, Wimbledon Final 2005
v. Henman, Wimbledon 2006
v. Gasquet, Wimbledon 2006

I haven't seen that 2003 Roddick/Federer semifinal, though.

Judging matches you haven't seen eh? Interesting.

Anyway, I say either the Ancic quarter in 06 or against Nadal last year.

Best Matches of All Time
Agassi def. Blake, U.S. Open 2005 | Agassi def. Baghdatis, U.S. Open 2006
Federer def. Sampras, Wimbledon 2001 | Davydenko def. Haas, U.S. Open 2006
Schalken def. Gonzalez, U.S. Open 2002 | Agassi def. Roddick, Cincinnati 2004
Kohlschreiber def. Roddick, Australian Open 2008 | Federer def. Nadal, Wimbledon 2007
Melzer def. Djokovic, Roland Garros 2010 | Sargsian def. Mathieu, U.S. Open 2004
Nalbandian def. Safin, Madrid 2006 | Soderling def. Nadal, Roland Garros 2009
Federer def. Tipsarevic, Australian Open 2008 | Gaudio def. Coria, Roland Garros 2004
Djokovic def. Stepanek, U.S. Open 2007 | Murray def. Gasquet, Wimbledon 2008
