It would be good to define some of these performances from the likes of Lendl, Segura, Sampras etc and to maybe even show highlights of the matches. Unfortunately, I can't help so much here so it would be cool if folks who have heaps of videos and such would perhaps provide highlights.
We have some stats in chart form: http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=194913
Andreev defeating Roddick hit an average of 1 forehand winner per game, can't recall if we ever found a higher rate.
One that I've learned of since then is Lendl in the 1987 Masters final over Wilander: 18 forehand winners over 25 games, per the New York Times (I haven't found a copy of that match anywhere to confirm the number).
