Most impressive Masters Series victory?

There's one for slams, so how about AMS's. George brought up Willy Canas' Toronto victory in 2002, and it's certainly a candidate.

R64 Roger Federer (SUI) 10 7-6(10), 7-5
R32 Paradorn Srichaphan (THA) 60 6-2, 6-1
R16 Yevgeny Kafelnikov (RUS) 5 6-2, 6-2
Q Marat Safin (RUS) 2 7-5, 6-3
S Tommy Haas (GER) 3 6-4, 3-6, 7-6(5)
W Andy Roddick (USA) 12 6-4, 7-5

Can also think of the run Henman went on beating Davydenko, Grosjean, Kuerten, Federer, Roddick and Pavel, all TMS champions of their own right.

Re: Most impressive Masters Series victory?

Some suggestions were made by people in this thread of mine: Thomas Enqvist - both the strongest and weakest winning run in a Masters Series?

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Re: Most impressive Masters Series victory?

What about Djokovic at the Roger's cup 2007

Kiefer
Nalbandian
Roddick
Nadal
Federer

Re: Most impressive Masters Series victory?

I'll go for Henman in Paris 2003. Beat a former world #1 in Kuerten, Wimbledon champion Federer and US Open champion and world #1 Roddick back to back before taking care of Pavel in the final. Good achievement for a man with a game like Henman's.

Re: Most impressive Masters Series victory?

Any top player winning a TMS nowadays isn't going to feature with no 5 set final and a first round bye- it's like playing Dubai.

Re: Most impressive Masters Series victory?

It's a differen to beat Federer and Nadal or Roddick and Haas.

No doubts, Djokovic is more impressive.
But there may be others.
