which matches do you think federer has played at his absolute best?

the 2 bagels vs. hewitt at the us open 04 probably. that was out of this world and better than the roddick-match at this year's aussie open.

First one that came to mind was also US Open 2004. Hewitt went into the finals without dropping a set and was served 2 bagels.

I also first thought about US Open 2004 finals against Hewitt. No one could dream that ex WImbledon and US Open champion could get such a beating in the finals. Almost unexplicable

btw. Hewitt himself once commented that he thinks Wimbledon 2003 finals is the best Federer is ever going to play (I think it was before their's AO 2004 4th round match)

Ditto, Fed was still in revenge-mood from the DC loss and he had nothing to lose at the time. He was going for broke more often.
Tee Agassi final in USO 05 was also great, he had a legend and a crowd against him and switched gear to play awesome tennis.
