Which match on grass do you think Federer played his best tennis (i.e. what was his most dominating performance?)?

vs. Roddick in the semis 03, or in the finals 05'...

Roddick semis, and his Ancic quarter final in 2006.

When he drilled Gasquet and Henman in 06

Probably the day he beat Sampras at Wimbledon, unless Pete had an off day. The last two Wimbldon finals certainly were great matches. Oops! I thought we were talking about great matches, not one sided ones. A great match though is one where a player has to play their best to beat another great player, playing their best tennis.

I'd echo what others say.

v. Roddick, Wimbledon Final 2005
v. Henman, Wimbledon 2006
v. Gasquet, Wimbledon 2006

I haven't seen that 2003 Roddick/Federer semifinal, though.

Judging matches you haven't seen eh? Interesting.

Anyway, I say either the Ancic quarter in 06 or against Nadal last year.
