He will save 6 MP.

Oh, and on his MP, he'll manage that between the legs shot he missed against Safin.

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

federer's mental toughness and 5-set grittiness will become more apparent as the years go by.

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

Quality wise. US OPEN 2004. I haven't seen Federer play any better than this or close to this level since Masters cup '06 SF'S and Final as well as Aussie '07 semis. So it could well be a two way tie with US OPEN '04 Final and Masterscup final of '06 or perhaps a three way tie with these two and the aussie open '07 semis.

Now in terms of significance I could say it's certainly a two way tie, Wimbledon '03 semis and the Wimbledon '01 round of 16 without these two matches along with winning the masters cup that year getting rid of his demons Agassi, Nalbandian, Ferrero et al, he would not be the champion he is today.

Do not accuse a man for no reason—
when he has done you no harm, Proverbs3:30"


So long Marat Safin, C'mon Lleyton Hewitt,Viel gluck Tommy Haas, Bring it on Marcos Baghdatis, Gut Spielen Nicolas Kiefer, Dale Fernando Gonzalez, Dale David Nalbandian, Davai Nikolay Davydenko and Allez Jo-Wilfried Tsonga

Roger continue marvelling us the tennis mortals

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

I can never forget the way he demolished Roddick in that first Wimbledon Semi Final in 2003...

what made it better was at the time, even though fed was 3-0 v Andy, everyone was making Andy the fave to win Wimbledon.....

but that day, Roger showed them and the rest of the world no one can play like him.

remember that swinging half volley winner at SP in the 2nd set?

Big Pete Lundgren was laughing his ass off.


also cant forget that 01 match v Sampras when he serve volleyed alot more and beat the great man.

An incredible shot, maybe about a couple of feet from the net, he took it right off of the bounce. Someone should put it up on YouTube.

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

AO '07 vs Roddick. Just Awesome, whether or not Roddick made it easy for him, Rogers tennis was to die for. Sadly have never seen USO '04 against Hewitt. Was actually on a plane on way to Australia. When I got there I asked a few people who had won, nobody knew! and Hewitts an Aussie!

Federer has one problem: he mostly plays 5-setters against great players. 5 of the 7 5-setters he played since he became no.1 were against Nadal (3 times), Safin and Agassi. He's won 3 and lost 2. Not bad. His only bad loss the last 4 years was Nalbandian and he was simply not physically ready for that match. I expect his 5-set record to improve when he starts playing 5-setters against mediocre players.
