Was Maria's Olympic final performance the worst final performance of the year?

In looking back over the year and all the WTA finals, who had the worst performance in a final?

Correct me if I am wrong, but the 6-0/6-1 Maria's lost to Serena in the Olympic Final Gold Medal Match was the worst. Only 1 game won by Maria!
Again, correct me if I am wrong?

Does Sharapova have the most embarrassing big match losses of any top player?
Most embarrassing big final for the WTA 2012?

been there, done that

Not really. Sharapova had very little say in that final There's a difference between not playing well and not being allowed to play well.

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

it's funny b/c I don't even think it was about Maria not playing playing well....she was just basically not allowed to play and just had to take whatever Serena was giving her

Not only that, and correct me if I am wrong, it was the biggest audience ever too. That stadium was filled, a zillion TVs were tuned in, it was the Olympics. This tennis tournament only comes around EVERY 4 YEARS!! IMO, it is higher than a slam. And to muster up only 1 game, come on now!! This might rate as the worst final performance of the decade, or century!! What ya think?

You know, you two have a very valid point there. I didn't take that into consideration when I started this topic.

Yep. She played at around one tenth of her full level. Still a massive achievement though.

No. That scoreline is a result of how SERENA played.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

Re: Was Maria's Olympic final performance the worst final performance of the year?

The worst performance in a final this year was her loss to Agatha in Miami.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Re: Was Maria's Olympic final performance the worst final performance of the year?

She didnt play poorly in the final. She didnt play great either, but she wasnt allowed to play tennis in that final so it is impossible to say much about her performance good or bad. It was definitely far from her worst though. The Australian Open and Miami finals this year alone were way worse. So was the Rome final where she played like 11% and beat a 10% Na in a royal shitfest.

Exactly. Serena took the match completely out of her hands. She was the only player on court today, and it would have been that way regardless who was on the other side.
