Which match in 2007 have you seen Roger being the most hopeless:help: There hasn't been many, but for sure you can pick one;)

Either Canas in IW or Volandri in Rome. Probably Volandri because he'd never lost to him before and Volandri is a total mug. At least Canas had beaten Fed before in 2003 and is known as a human backboard.

I didn't put the TMC loss to Gonzo as it wasn't among Fed's worst matches of the year, he didn't play that badly I think;) His Cincy match against Baghdatis, however, no comment:o

I see many people voted for the match against Volandri, but I wouldn't want to count that one as a serious loss - IMHO, he was completely ABSENT that day, his mind was absolutely somewhere else (he was just about to split/or just had split with Roche, wasn't it?), so I consider that loss as an incidental hiccup.

The RG-final, though... that really was an UGH! match. His body language telling throughout the match that he felt beaten right from the start, lackluster performance all over...

It's between the Baghdatis 3rd round victory at cincy and his victory over Davydenko during round robin. Both guys were playing quite atrociously, errors left and right and by no means by a small margin. They were missing by yards not even feet. :o :o

In terms of quality of play, I'd have to say that his win over Davydenko in the TMC is right near the top. I don't think I've seen him play worse, yet win so comfortably.

No kidding!!!!!!!! His tennis teachers must have been dying of a heart attack if they watched this match. He was missing shots that not even an amateur would miss. His form was absolutely pathetic, they do say that pathetic form from an opponent may actually drag you with it, Davydenko may have contributed too.

Yet it was all in Federer's hand. So for sure this was his poorest match quality wise.

Rome 3rd Rnd Volandri def. Federer 6-2, 6-4 is over 70%!!!!!!

I voted for his match against Volandri, just because he was totally absent that day, he wasn't even in Rome, never mind on court.

Afterwards it's MC vs Nadal, you blinked and it was over.

I don't count the Volandri match either ... an abberation due to circumstances off court. Perhaps my vote was personal more than anything else ... the FO final and those 10 1st set b/p that went begging just about broke my heart that day.

I pick my own match.
Fed-Bagy in Cincy this year. Although Fed was the winner 7-6 7-5, it was kind of the match makes you want to throw up. Lack of motivation and both of the players made so many UEs.

Miami 4th Rnd Canas def. Federer 7-6, 2-6, 7-6
Monte Carlo Final Nadal def. Federer 6-4, 6-4
Roland Garros Final Nadal def. Federer 6-3, 4-6, 6-4, 6-3
Montreal Final Djokovic def. Federer 7-6, 2-6, 7-6
Madrid Final Nalbandian def. Federer 1-6, 6-3, 6-3
Paris 3rd Rnd Nalbandian def. Federer 6-4, 7-6

I'm not here to judge but it's my opinion that anyone picking these matches either hasn't seen all the matches or has made a silly choice.

Canas in Miami was a top 15 player playing at a VERY good level and Federer played okay. No he wasn't at his best but I'd say that match was average at worst and not even comprable with his bad performances.

Nadal at MC and RG, both times beaten by a better player. Nadal played great at MC. At RG I thought Federer was pretty good, not good enough of course but an above average performance.

Djoko's win over Federer was Djoko, a top 5 player for sure, at his very best squeaking out 7-6 in the third. That was not terrible from Roger, it wasn't good but seriously a decent performance.

Neither Nalbandian matches saw Federer playing amazing but Paris he was okay and Madrid I thought he played a good match.

None of those options are really legitimate for me.

Actually I did see the FO final and while it may not have been Roger's worst match (clearly it wasn't if you compare it to the Volandri one), my verdict was purely personal on how I felt about it on the day. It was seeing those 17 b/ps go begging - no matter how well Nadal fought them off. My personal opinion and I'm sticking to it!

In my opinion the 2007 Monte Carlo final was quite abysmal from Fed, his tactics were terrible, his fight wasn't there and his forehand was totally absent... Nadal played well, true, but it was among (maybe the one) Roger's worst matches ever against Nadal..

the Miami loss was NOT the worst but again...I was there to watch it live & it was heartbreaking to witness :eek: But Canas had just beat him in IW & to see him do it again in Miami was tough to take.

Thank goodness for cosmo's & good friends to help me recover. :)

For me no question it has to be IW because I had tickets for the SF and F and ended up seeing two of my least favorite players - Nadal and Roddick. :rolleyes: But in terms of just really crappy tennis, the match against Baghdatis in Cincy tops everything.

In terms of the quality of Roger's tennis in those matches, you are absolutely right - but you know, sometimes people voted on those matches for 'other' reasons I think - let's say 'less rational, more emotional' reasons. At least I did... :cool:

I agree with these three. In Miami, I actually think he was playing absolutely great from end of 2nd to mid 3rd, don't know how he lost it. In Montreal, he didn't play badly at all. Just was careless on crucial points. In Madrid he played a good match I totally agree, just Nalbandian was playing better. Paris a bit similar story. Another loss not included in the list which he played actually well is the loss to Gonzalez in TMC.

I didn't even remember how he played in MC and RG. I guess I have a bad memory for clay matches :scratch: but not Hamburg final:D

For me his perfonmance in the final of the French Open was quite low for tennis level. His lost against Cañas in hard courts was also quite sorprising, not his second lost against him in MonteCarlo because Cañas played pretty well that match.

Absolutely RG final. At each chance to break Rafa he asleeped. Everything will be Ok if nadal played so good but Rafa didn't show nothing special and Rog couldn't take advance. Shame? A little bit
but he equalize Pete record on RG '08 .

The Cincy match was bad but it was played in simply brutal heat and humidity. It was more an endurance test than a tennis match.
