I hope you guys who write Federer and Forehand are refering to Fed from 2003-2009, because his forehand is probably not even his 2nd biggest weapon in later years lol

Gasquet is a top 10 all time player?
Who Rios? Did he win a lot of futures?
My list is the highest level I have seen played albeit some in short stretches of time with all due respect to the autonomous machines that are and have been at the top for the a long while now. Also, I feel earlier eras than these deserve their own list.

What were Gasquet and Tomic's highest level matches?

The first three that come to mind are when Gasquet defeated Federer in Monte Carlo when he was just a kid, his five set victory over Wawrinka in the Wimby quarters(11-9 in the 5th) and a fantastic match against Tommy Haas in Davis Cup(2006). There are many more.

Tomic - those times he didn't tank
