    federer def roddick 6-4 6-0 6-2

    we're talking about roddick, a great hard court player and federer just completely killed him, it was disgusting to watch.

    im talking about a roddick who just won Cincinnati and got to the finals of the us open, i'd take that over 4 consective small titles. He also held a match point over federer in shangai. Roddick is obviously a much better player than del potro

    I'd say 2007 AO SF as well. I think Roddick said something the prvious week about him catching up to Fed and then he got beat pretty bad the following week.

    Most humiliating match ever is easy that would be Federer Gaudio 6-0 6-0 at the masters 2005. At a slam however I would think these are the main contenders for the worst beatings ever by Federer.
    Federer Hewitt USopen 2004 final 6-0 7-6 6-0
    Federer Del Potro AO 2009 QF 6-3 6-0 6-0
    Federer Roddick AO 2007 SF 6-4 6-0 6-2
    I would say Hewitt is the worst because he always keeps trying to turn a match around and the scoreline doesn't seem to affect his game as much, and it was in the final of the US open that gives him exta credit. Second Del Potro what was it 13, 14 or 15 games in a row? Sorry Roddick you don't win this on either you are only on number 3.

    The Roddick thrashing was definitely the worst. Look at the backround. Roddick had slowly been catching up to Fed. At the 06 USO, Roddick forced Federer to play his best tennis to beat him. In Shanghai in 06, Roddick was 1 point away from topping him. And then in Kooyong, Roddick beat Federer, 1 week before the AO. An AO win looked very possible, especially after Roddicks 6-2 6-2 6-2 thrashing of Fish in the QF.

    Roger's form

    In general, Roger's form from 2004-2006 makes you wonder 'How in the world does he do that' Like his shots seemed as simple as jus swinging ur arm. He's still very good but maybe not as much awe as before. abt 85% now compared to 110% before?

    The level of play is slightly overrated imo.
    It's got to be the AO 07 SF. Reasons have already been mentioned before. His court coverage was amazing.

    ^^^Federer vs Safin AO 2005 semis isn't overrated.

    It's underrated in fact. You could fill over a half-hours worth of highlights from this match and most of it would be amazing rallies and excellent shotmaking from both.

    Federer played through some discomfort during the match, but he still performed great. And Safin had to play out-of-this-world tennis to defeat him.

    Actually, every match Fed played in AO 05 (vs Santoro, Suzuki, Baggy, Andre, Safin) he played great.

    2007 Australian Open Semifinals, every passing shot hit immaculately, 7/7 breakpoints converted, 7/7 on challenges, won pretty much every rally, lol. Firing on all cylinders, and under the circumstances (Roddick improving, supposedly catching up with Fed, and in general being one of the better hardcourt players of his generation) it was just that much more sick.

    2009 AO vs. Del Potro was a different animal IMO. You could see even early in the second set that Delpo wanted to get the hell out of there. A Masterclass by Fed, but Del Potro was playing like a brick (plus he matches up poorly against Fed.)

    Because he knows he can get Roddick's serve back enough to get him in rallies, while he knows that Roddick can't break his serve.

    I'm glad that Roddick has changed this year -- he has a chance now, b/c he moves better, serves more intelligently and returns better than he ever has (i.e. 2009 Wimbledon final) and is playing with a tactical game plan regularly for the first time since Gilbert was his coach.

    Yeah.That one, though it's really difficult to put that over a few other total decimations.
