Most boring and/or disappointing grand slam in recent years for you?

For me Wimbledon 2010 was the most boring in GS tournies lately. Except Kvitova's drubbing of Caro it was totally unremarkable.

USO 2011 was pretty boring and disappointing, barring the final of course.


Faves: Sharapova, Hantuchova, Safarova, Goerges

Re: Most boring and/or disappointing grand slam in recent years for you?

lol serena fans in quick to take a sly shot at kim :neverindoubt:

i seem to remember the 2007 french open was the most boring and dissapointing i can recall. henin cruised through as expected and any potential later match up that looked juicey (henin vs serena, henin vs jankovic, sharapova vs ivanovic ect) ended up being a straight sets bore. the final was cringe too, with ivanovic crumbling and her ball toss going off.

Anna Chakvetadze Rules

Kim Clijsters - Supporting the comeback!

I have no other faves, I just hate

Yes, RG 2007 was so anti-climatic, but then again it usually always is.

AO 2004 was a total snore too. And RG 2004 had some of the worst latter round matches between genuine elite players EVER.
