Most dominant individual match performances ever seen
So what are your favorite matches in which a player X totally dominated the match with (almost) flawless play. I'm not talking about where the other player Y played like crap, but one in which player Y was simply outclassed by X?
For me, it has to be Federer-Roddick Wimbledon Semi finals 2003. I know there is so much Federer glorification out there on these threads (with good reason), but I was recently perusing video recording of that match and could not help but to be amazed at how perfect the play of Federer even though Roddick played a good match. Roddick wasn't able to get anything past Federer (either serve, baseline attacks, or even volleys). I mean Fed had about 4 times the number of Ace counts as Roddick. His court coverage that day was exceptional even for him, and he was able to produce some crazy winners. His approach to the net was flawless too. And to think that Roddick had a dominant year in 2003 going on to dominate the hard court season and the US Open ...
Another match that I think of off the top of my head, Srichaphan-Agassi at Wimbledon 2002. Unfortunately, I didn't get to see this, only read reports (and salivated cause Pdorn is evidently a favorite player of mine. Don't know if it qualified though because apparently Agassi was totally off his game, though Pdorn played without fear there (sidenote: wish he could get back on track before it's too late in his career. He seems to be sliding .. )
P.S. Anyone interested in downloading a video of Fed-Roddick 2003 match let me know. It's like 3 videos total of about 350MB (some games missing). There is a (korean?) website that has a bunch of tennis matches. I just need to find it in my favorite links.
