Best tournaments of Federer's reign

Since the reign is now officially over, i wonder how everyone here thinks about the title's subject:

Which was the best tournament for Federer between TMC 2003 and Wimbledon 2008 ?

The best GS and the best AMS and his best TMC, if possible...

Me, i watched him very closely live (almost every match showed on TV) since AO 2005 (Safin SF)...and i've seen his before 2005 best matches recorded, thanks to file-sharing communities...

IMHO, best GS was AO '07, best TMC was 2006, as for the best AMS, I'd say Madrid 2006....


Opinnions, pls...

2008 RG final.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Best tournaments of Federer's reign

The Australian Open back in 2007. Although Roddick was a good matchup for Federer in the SF and played right into his hands, it was still probably one of the single greatest performances I've seen from an individual at that stage of a tournament imo

Re: Best tournaments of Federer's reign

I think you have to go with the 2004 or the 2005 U.S Open. Honorable mention 2006 Wimbledon. Which slam he won without losing a set? 2007 AO? Then that's on the list too.

Re: Best tournaments of Federer's reign

AMS

Too many to remember lol I'll choose Hamburg 2002 because it was his first big title, it was on clay and he played an amazing match against Safin in the final.


GS

Wimbledon 2003: A dream. Especially the victory against Roddick in semi-final, one of the best match of his career, plus at that time Roddick was the favorite, he just won the Queens. It was also like a dream because almost nobody was giving him a chance to win the tournament or a GS one day. He was still a headcase and just did lose against Horna in the first round of RG.


AUS Open 2004: When I saw the draw, I was like "ok he CAN'T win this tournament, just impossible". He had Hewitt (1/8), Nalbandian(1/4) and Ferrero (1/2) in his draw... in that time Hewitt was still his biggest Nemesis and so was Nalbandian. I'll remember the victory against Hewitt forever because it was just few months after the Davis Cup heartbreaking loss on the same court. It was the Australian Day, the night session and during the match you could hear some fireworks. Federer won in fourth sets, it was only his third win in five years against Hewitt and the first in a GS. The final was against Safin, he won and became number one for the first time right after the tournament.


US Open 2004: I choose this Slam because I'll always remember the five sets victory IN A TERRIBLE WIND against Agassi in quarters. Agassi at home, the worst conditions possible for Fed (he hated playing in the wind), in the other hand Agassi was known for being the best for playing in windy conditions. During that match Federer showed an AMAZING mental strenght and he won. He was definitely NOT a mug and a pussy at that time (wonder what happened since...). The final against Hewitt was an Hard Court tennis demonstration. Remember the beating Fed took at RG this year ? It was nearly the same but on HC. Hewitt won just 6 games. Fed clinched his first title in New York and became the first player since Sampras to have won at Wimbledon and the US Open the same year.


TMC

I'll choose the TMC 2003 in Houston. His first victory in this competition and the confirmation that he would become a great player. He played against Agassi, Nalbandian whom he's never beaten. He did beat Nalbandian in the Round Robin and Agassi twice. The first time against Agassi was for his opening RR match. Night session, great ambiance, two tie-break, very tight match, he won 7-6 in the third. He played Agassi in the final too. This time it was a demonstration. 6-3 6-0 6-4. Agassi had absolutely no answer. During the tounament he has beaten also Ferrero in RR and Roddick in the semi. All of his match were absolutely fantastic.

Because he knows more in his little finger about tennis than fanboys/fangirls do in their bodies.
