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

My vote is the 2007 Australian Open semifinal: he was simply magical that night But very close behind come the 2004 US Open final, the 2005 Wimbledon final and the 2006 Shanghai final

Fed-Hewitt USO 2004

it was fun seeing Hewitt getting his ass kicked hard and Federer that looked in total control even in the close 2nd set

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

Looking at the polls people seem to vote for Rogi's best performance rather than most important match in his career.

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

My great tennis loves-Roger Federer, Paul Henry Mathieu and Marat Safin

Grigor Dimitrov & David Goffin - The future of tennis

Allez - Jerzy Janowicz, Jose Acasuso , Lleyton, Djokovic, Nalbandian, Clement, Nicolas Almagro, Stanislas Wawrinka

Ai Se Eu Te Pego - Michel Telo

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

I think his biggest match was the one versus Sampras in Wimbledon. It was sort of his breakthrough. 'Changing of the Guards' as the BBC said very poeticly...

I agree with you. The AO 2007 was (and remains) certainly my favorite to watch because "dancing Roger" was on full display. On the Charlie Rose interview, Roger states the 2007 Wimbledon final was the biggest win of his career. (I think I have that right).

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

I think AO 07 SF is somewhat overrated. Roddick was absolutely awful, all Roger had to do is punish his mediocre approach shots.

Rodick was awful. Prior to the match, there was all this build up in the US about how the gap between them was closing and Roddick was going to give Roger all this trouble. Watching that match as a Federer fan was oh so satisfying.

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

i read this poll as :Most significant, or most important?

i would go with federer roddick wimbledon 2004, and federer nadal wimbledon 2007

in terms of best match...no doubt. federer - hewitt 04

fed was just ON FIRE.

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

best performance in big match-Federer vs Hewitt(to wim 3 out of 4 slams for the first time), but Wimby 05 and AO 07 vs Roddick were also very special

Agree with both.

I voted for the final against Hewitt at USO.

I think the QF in USO 2004 against Agassi amd Wimbledon 2007 final are also two of his best big matches...due to what I think they represent.

Wimbledon 2004 final against Andy R was also an excellent match, which was also the real turning point in their 'rivalry' which never was.
