Re: Most embarrassing big final for the WTA 2012?

Any final with such lopsided scores is bad for Women's tennis. No one enjoys watching someone get smashed, it's boring. Everyone expects to see a real "battle" with high quality play between 2 top players. When that doesn't happen, it gives fuel to the detractors of the sport. Even hardcore fans probably groan when they see a Williams/Sharapova final.

Sofia. Scrubzniacki can't even vulture MM events against the likes of Grandma Petrova anymore

You might not think she "cheated" but Pova clearly took advantage of Engzell's incompetence. I've never seen an umpire ask a player where the mark is/listen to them anyway.

Also, I never answered this question. The Olympics, duh.
Sue them.

Which has absolutely nothing to do with Maria.

Plus Maria said she wasn't sure. And didn't the ump pick a different mark to the one Maria pointed to?

The Olympic final, but Maria had nothing to do with it. Same thing would have happened if it had been someone else on the other side of the net from Serena that day.

I was going to say the Olympic final but, looking back, it was more glorious than embarrassing.

1. It wasn't "clear" otherwise the chair umpire would have just made the call without leaving the chair.
2. Maria circled a mark but clearly shrugged her shoulders and said "I don't know" to the chair, and she didn't argue when...
3. The point was given to Petra.

Olympics. But there wasn't a damned thing Maria could do out there.

Miami final... Because I can't see how a defensive player could dominate over Sharapova in the final. If it was quarterfinals it would be ok, but in the final?!

Otherwise, it would be back to deuce and that was a pivotal point in the match. Basically, she circled a spot that wasn't even there and cheated Petra willfully out of the point. Not the first time this happened, as she pulled this crap on Shahar Peer, not to mention when she laughed at her coach's vile cracks on Serena that they showed on video because Maria was getting beat. Still, the FO she pulled was most annoying.

The first match that came to my mind when I saw the thread was Rome. For some reason it refuses to leave my memory.
But it was less embarrassing than the Olympic final.
