The official tennis season for Roger is over now and therefore I thought to start a poll to ask which in your opinion has been Rogers best match in 2007. As I know that it will be hard to name just one you have multiple choices.

Interesting poll, and very fitting now the season's over! (And how wonderful did it end for Rogi :hug:)

I voted for the Wimbly final.
NOT because of Roger's tennis, as it obviously wasn't his best match - but because of its relevance, him having to play Rafa while he got a severe beating at RG just a few weeks before, the fact that for both there was one of Borg's records on stake, the intensity of the match, the way both players had to struggle by the hand(s) of the other, etc.
Probably I have many reasons more, but these are the first that come to mind.

I might make a second choice on the match where he actually played his best tennis. Have to think about that one, though.

I vote for US Open against Djokovic, just because it had specific atmosphere for me, I watched it on my holidays in Bulgaria, it was night, very hot :rolleyes: and I watched it with my friend who is in love with Djokovic :cool:
So very interesting moments with fight of players I really love...:devil:

It would be Djokovic's match in AO......Roger kicked him around the court after all the talk he made and next comes roodick's match mainly for the hype it had in the media and the way roddick got thrashed after all the "gap closing" talk

I voted for the Wimbly final.


No surprise :p :hug: You are in good company by the way as Roger shares your opinion. He was asked today in the Swiss media about his best match this year and said it would be difficult to name. He would include the TMC SF against Nadal and the Wimbledonfinal against him. This would have been a match which had lived up to the expectations.

Definitely the AO semifinal against Roddick, his game was absolutely out of this world:worship: Close behind come the AO 4th round against Djoko, the TMC RR against Roddick and the TMC semifinal against Nadal, which were absolutely perfect as well:yeah: In terms of importance it is definitely the 2007 Wimbledon final, the famous thriller, and I would add the Hamburg final as well, we all know why;) But his game has never been at a higher level than the 2007 AO semifinal to me;)

The problem withthe AO SF vs ROddick, is that RoboRod makes it so easy for Fed to be at his best. So I'm more inclined towards Fed's great matches vs Nadal who he has a bad matchup problem with.

I also think that Roger beat Andy in AO was very very good,~

But I think beat Nadal is more Sharp!!!

Technically speaking, he played his best match against Djoko at the AO. Djoko actually played well in that match and got rolled. BH/FH were on, serve had pop when he got it in, movement was great, volleys were very good, returning was excellent...great match he played in that one.

Though I haven't watched this match in full I have to say I totally agree with you from the highlights of the match that I have seen. He seemed very pumped up and ready to send a message to this haughty kid.

I guess there was a buzz about Novak being the next big thing behind him and Nadal and he had improved and did not fear Roger. In response Federer played a very determined match, eagerly punishing any opportunity on the opposite end.

However I give my vote to the TMC semifinal versus Nadal, just when I thought his serve couldn't be more immaculate he almost went on an impersonation of the man who's record he has be gunning after since wimbledon 2001 round of 16. Yeah as some one pointed out it is easy for Roger to find his great form against Roddick there's just a bad match up on Andy's side.

I don't think his level of play in the AO semi against Roddick was matched this year. Simply out of this world stuff and he sustained it for three sets, which is difficult to do. The TMC matches against Roddick and Nadal are close, though.
The match of the year was, no doubt, the Wimbledon finals. Tremendous poise and grace under pressure and his serve was downright Samprasian in that match. :)

I think it's fair to say both 2007 AO semifinal and 2007 Wimbledon final are his 2 best matches of 2007:) The results of the poll prove it;)

Certainly NOT the Wibledon final. It was a fantastic match, but Roger was basically outplayed until the middle of the fifth set. He was playing way too defensively.

My pick is between the AO SF against Roddick and the Hamburg final against Nadal.

I have not seen all of the matches offered in the poll, but I do wonder that the Wimbledon final ranks so high. Yes, Roger won it in the end, but for large parts Nadal was the dominating man on court and forced his game upon Roger. But we had this discussion before, I never ranked this match very high tennis-wise, though it was a special occasion for me, as I had gotten final tickets in the Wimby lottery at my first attempt. :D

My favorites were any of his night matches at the USO, the AO SF against Roddick and any of his last three matches in Shanghai.

Wimbledon final - I think it was the most exciting match in this year and Roger again showed us that he can won match even when seems that situation is hopeless. I've never forgotten this moment when was 40-0 for Nadal.

1/2 AO, TMS or 1/4 USO with Andy- Roger when play with Roddick always plays his the best tennis and always exopses how much Andy is worst than Rog. This matches was next great lesson for A-rod.

And for me the best match - Wimbledon - Rafa vs Roger and 5th title !! Simply the best ;]

Probably the AO SF vs Roddick, USO vs Lopez, Roddick. All those had good Winners/UFE ratios. Problem with the TMC final, W-30, UFE-29

Lucky you who could watch the Wimbledon final live ;) Although I'm sure a lot of us would have probably got a heart attack during the match.

(I put the Roger-Richard match in the poll just for you by the way ;) )

I think the amount of answers for the Wimbledon match depend a lot on the fact that Roger won the match in the end, that he equaled Borgs record there and last, but not least that he was able, like last year, to beat Rafa straight away after a hurting loss just a few weeks earlier in Paris. Quality wise it was surely not his best performance during a whole match, but due to the circumstances I find it understandable that the match got a lot of votes :)

Without a doubt the AO SF against Robo Rod. I also loved how he kicked the shit out of Fakervic at the AO after he made those comments before the 4th round match.

I don't know why the Wimbledon final ranks so high here. Fed played like shit in that match, he played too defensively. Nadal dominated him from the baseline for most of the match. Hopefully his serve saved him and in the last part of the 5th set he woke up and played aggressive tennis.

AO vs Djoko
AO vs Roddick
USO vs Lopez
TMC vs Ferrer

These are a few of my top picks as well, though I can still find only the highlights of the Djokovic match. A lot of people say his AO SF win over Roddick was more Roddick's fault, but Federer missed almost nothing, even the ridiculous fh cc passing shots that dropped like stones in the back corner.

So it's either that one or TMC vs. Ferrer for me. Against Ferrer, he really pounded the ball from the ground. Ferrer gave a lot of points away, but Federer was cruising, especially in that second set. When he is driving the backhand and forehand down the line, consecutively, you know he's feeling it more than usual.

1. AO against Roddick for the sheer domination.

2. Wimbledon final for the excitement and drama.
