Default Best match of Roger in 2008?

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 2008.
We haven't been spoiled as much as in the past with outstanding performances, but I hope I have choosen some matches which you would also name as Roger's best ones of this season
You can vote for more than one match if you want to and it would be great to hear some opinions for your choices.

AO vs Santoro he was playing flawless and it was great to watch him playing that match everything was working in a great way almost in a perfect way
also i liked his performance in Wimby regardless of the result but it was a great match to watch and his fight spirit
and his MC match against Nalbandian he played very very good on clay i rememberd when i was watching the match i had a lot of hopes that he would have a very big chances to win RG and to beat Nadal

Either vs Djokovic or Murray during the USO. Because of the caliber of the opponent and the importance of the tournament.

Default Re: Best match of Roger in 2008?

I'm afraid I have to go with two matches that he eventually lost, the Wimbly final and the TMC-match against Muzza.

Why? Because despite both of those matches ending up as heartbreakers, it showed very clearly a side of Roger that is often being unrecognized - his will to FIGHT, whatever happens.

He's going to need that will power more than ever in 2009, with all the young guns coming up - and I was just glad to see that it's still there...

Karin, I have to agree and disagree. Those 2 losses truly showed Roger's "will to win" is 2nd to none. However I really loved the Monte Carlo QF and US Open semi for how great his topspin backhand was working. It was like 2006 Roger on display for those 2 matches.

I remember some of the comments on GM after Roger won his first two matches in Melbourne. People wondered who would be able to stop him this season.

Here are highlights from the match against Fabrice:

I like Roger's match-up against Nalbandian, even though David is able to really trouble him. But they often provide high quality tennis. I know how much we all were worried about Roger having to play against Nalby, who crushed Robredo in the previous round.

You are right here, Karin. We have seen this side already in the past (like in the SF of the AO against Safin, in the TMC final of the same year against Nalbandian, the Rome final 2006, the Wimbledon final 2007...) and this year in the AO match against Tipsarevic and in the USO encounter against Andreev.

Yes I voted the Basel final because he simply was returning so crisply, however he served a lot better at the OPEN, definitely those two. However what Karin points out is very worth mentioning, those matches do show the true character of Roger the champion.

Can not understand why people are voting for the USO final. Yep, some good quality pieces, but not the match in general.
Basel F - there where we've seen almost the best Fed.

So you don't follow Roger's career that long? It's always special to witness him winning a Grand Slam title Have you been able to get to see some previous victories of him in the main tournaments meanwhile?

no unfortunately...only from wimbledon this year....but i been you tubing quite a lot since then
i think the last time i saw him play properly was wimbledon 2001 against sampras and tim henman....both times i wanted him to lose. how things change...
but in a way i think this is the most exciting part of his career...will he break the record?...can he get number 1 back? 2009....VERY excited.
