Australian. I did enjoy the USO very much too.

Wimbledon & RG were forgettable for me.

US Open.

Exciting final and fantastic matches between Azarenka/Sharapova/Serena/Stosur/Petrova/Robson/Kim/Na. Great stories as well with Kim's retirement, Robson and Sloane's break through, the 'top 3' establishing themselves even further. Only downside was the rain delay.

Re: Best Grand slam of 2012???

Oh man I accidentally voted for RG, can a mod switch my vote for Wimbledon? The slam Aga proved she is worthy of being at the top!

RG was by far the worst most boring slam of the year, I couldn't even tell you who went out what round or who even won. It was such a non-event this year.

MARIA SHARAPOVA

She managed her career slam... Its when Aga lost to Kuznetsova and proved herself as a non entity on the grand slam front when pitted against a big hitter.

Its not really a career grand slam unless she can win 3 of them more than once. One of each is a tad flukish if you think about it.

Re: Best Grand slam of 2012???

Australian Open > US Open >>> Wimbledon >>>>>>>>>>>>> French Open (Rena losing her first Slam 1R match ever , Kim not present, Vika almost out in 1R and then losing to Pome in 4R , Vee losing to Aga , NaNa destroyed in 4R, Roby and Bine immediately out , Svetlana teaching Aga how to play tennis and then getting bagelled by Sara I mean, for the most of the time I was
The only good things were Petra Martic reaching 4R , NuriaJo making doubles SF, Roby winning doubles title and Petra reaching SF, even if with a nice cakewalk)

Victoria Azarenka

Konjuh - Kvitova - Lisicki - Martínez Sánchez - Muguruza - Serena - Venus - Vinci

Cirstea - Date-Krumm - Kanepi - Krunic - Mattek-Sands - Mladenovic - Puig - Safarova - Schiavone - Shvedova - Suarez Navarro - Vogele

It was not a fluke, she beat Petra and sara and deserved to win it has improved so much on clay...

She's proved that she can only win a slam once on each surface...that to me is a fluke, she's never been able to repeat her success at a slam more than once. The fact that 4 slams were on in 8 years suggests a vulture to me.

Until she has won 3 of those slams again I'll remain unconvinced.
