Mine would have to be the 2001 U.S Open Final, in which Lleyton beat Sampras 7-6, 6-1, 6-1. A great match from Lleyton, who thumped Sampras, with exceellent returning, passing shots and lobs. Such a lopsided match.

Roddick vs. Dent 6-2 6-0 6-2 at AO a few years back.

Haas in the Memphis final 6-3 6-2 against Roddick. He just had to do it against the one player who I like better than him. :rolleyes:

Womens: Dokic thrashing Hingis 6-2 6-0 in the Wimbledon first round 1999. Dokic was a 16 year old qualifier and Hingis was a 5 time Grand Slam Champion World Number 1.

Rosewall over Laver in the 1972 Dallas final. Five sets of fabulous all-court tennis by two Masters of the game! Also loved Goran^s Wimbledon win against Rafter, who is one of may all time favorits. Poor Goran deserved at least one Wimbledon title. Also, Edberg^s second Wimbldon final win over Becker. Smapras, anytime he beat Agassi in a Slam!

Hewitt beating Roddick at AO 2005...Wow...How Hewitt was jumping around the court in the 4th set because he was playing so well :D

And I also go with the topic starter of course, that match vs Sampras by Hewitt was sublime :)

Marat beating Sampras at the 2000 USO is the best i have even seen him play

As for Guga, hmmm beating Sampras in 2000 in Lisbon is probably the best i've seen althought i'm sure there is a better match

Federer defeats Roddick. AO semi final 07

I think Federer played better in Wimbledon final v Roddick 2005. AO 2007 semi was just Roddick playing like a piece of shit. Actually probably worse.

Around 2000/1 was the best time for tennis, with Kuerton Rafter Hewitt Sampras Safin kicking ass.

Anyhoo, in accordance with OP:

Nalbandian kicking Fed out of 2003 US Open in 4.

Nalby was kicking Roddick's ass in US Open SF 2003 before someone fucked him on MP and he mentally imploded >,> . I might be saying that match in a parallel universe.

I'd say Robredo def. Massu in RG 2004... A tennis lesson from Tommy :p

Federer vs Everyone at the TMC '03

Seriously, what is Fed's best perfomance ever?

I'm probably completely off, but his performance vs Roddick AO07 and US Open Final vs Hewitt might be up there.

Yeah it was something but it was style of Lleyton he weathered the Roddick game in first set and in second where Roddick was clearly better and then started to raise his level, fourt set was demolishon
but Still the best Lleyton performance was
DC
coming from 0-2 3-5 to win in 5 sets with Federer it was something

I should say that Nalbandian's play in the first 2 and a half sets against Roddick at USO 2003 was mindblowing..I was instany Nalby fan :)
