If I go by the poll question than I believe that Rogis most significant match was his 2003 Wimbledon SF win against Roddick. That was his biggest win and most probably shut most people who doubted that he could play and win the big matches. His H2H was better but people didnt believe he could step up in the big moment and Roddick was the overwhelming favourite to win Wimby that year. I believe that win was what really propagated his career
I Love Roger play Andy!!!!

Hopefully a RG final could be apart of these polls some day.

Re: The best big match of Roger's career (so far)

How do you interpret the meaning of big match? Is it about the significance in Rogers career or about the quality of his performance?
There are three matches mentioned in the poll I won't consider as a big match at all: Last years Wimbledon match against Björkman, this years Wimbledon match against Gasquet and the US Open match against Roddick. Therefore two matches are missing which I would rate as far more important: Both Wimbledon finals against Nadal which were so completely different. Although they were played on Rogers prefered surface we shouldn't forget the match-up issue between them and the fact that Roger suffered in each case a loss against him in Roland Garros only a few weeks ago.

I couldn't just name one or two matches which stand out as the most important ones. The victory against Sampras was a hint, the Wimbledon SF 2003 against Roddick was a door-opener, the final against Phillippoussis the breakthrough, the match against Agassi at the TMC the coronation and the US Open performance against Hewitt a magic moment.

Re: The best big match of Roger's career (so far)

Okay what I meant in this poll was which big match (in a Grand Slam or TMC) Roger played his very best tennis, his highest level of play He played awesome in 2006 Wimbledon semifinal (I admitt Bjorkman wasn't a top player, but still Roger's tennis was ON), and his level of play against Roddick in 2007 USO was fantastic as well... I don't think Roger played his very best tennis in the last 2 Wimbledon finals, but in terms of importance in his career, yes they were definitely among the most important ones... But this poll is about Roger's BEST tennis in a big match.

Re: The best big match of Roger's career (so far)

Wimbledon final 2003 against Philippoussis. His highest level considering the pressure in his first grand slam final. Underrated match.

Re: The best big match of Roger's career (so far)

2003 Wimbledon Semi final against Roddick. I was stunned, shocked and awed during it, and so thankful after it. Will never forget that. 2004 USO final against Hewitt comes a very close second.

Personally I will always prefer his matches in earlier stages when he played with more visible passion and energy and improvisation, though I always love watching him play.

His match against Nadal will never be one of his best matches tennis-wise, no matter how tough and thrilling it is...But of course if he can seal a win in RG, it will be the sweetest and probably the biggest match in his career.

well if that's the case I would say the AO 2007 SF against Roddick.
