Most embarrassing big final for the WTA 2012?

Now that the 4th slam is finished, we can evaluate the up and down year that was 2012, unfortunately finals were more one sided than they were competitive and didn't really show the WTA in the best light.

So which final was more embarrassing for women's tennis?

Miami. Aga winning the final of a big tournament is beyond embarrassing. (Maria )

Maria Sharapova

Career Grand Slam + Silver Medalist.

And if you are negligible brains were looking at the one-sided aspect, then how is Aga-Maria one sided compared to the others on the list?!

Aga won 2-0...looks pretty one sided to me. Especially as pova fans seem to think she owns Aga on court.

Sharapova fans setting her up for people to go in on her. This is too much.

Then what about The French Open?

The games ratio was 13:9 in case your negligible brains can't do the Math.

Of course I get your point, multiple slam champion Masha losing to irrelevant players like Aga is beyond embarrassing.

Olympics obviously. RG deserves a mention as well, because Errani was in it.

This. Any final Errani is participating has "embarrassing" written all over it.

From the poll, Olympics, obviously... Sharapova in 4 of the 5 options

Miami was funny as hell

Is there any creature on earth as unfortunate as an ugly woman?
