Therefore, Wimbledon final was a fluke. Miami title was a fluke. Beijing and Tokyo titles in 2011 was a fluke. (only done each once) #logic

Re: Most embarrassing big final for the WTA 2012?

Had to go with AO.

It's hard to vote for Olympics for me, seeing as she had zero chance against Serena there anyway. AO was a winnable match and she won the first couple of games even, and then only one afterwards .

Serena was struggling to win points, let along games like Sharapova was in those matches? I think not. Any multiple slam winner (lets forget about the big 4 from the golden generation) struggling to win points in such a big final is just outright embarrassing, shameful and pathetic.

Actually, Maria wasn't struggling to win points in the Olympics final It was only on the KEY points that she was failing epically (e.g. she had 40-0 leads in two service games in the first set, only to waste both of them, plus a 0-30 lead in one of Serena's service games and breakpoints in another of Serena's service games).

I believe the first set of the Olympics final lasted (a couple of minutes) longer than the one-sided first set in last year's US Open final (and of course, the only reason the USO final lasted longer than the Olympics final overall is because of Serena's gamesmanship early in the 2nd set).

As embarrassing/shameful/pathetic as a player not only struggling to win points in a big final, but also being so embarrassed that they attempt to cheat / get the crowd to turn on her opponent * instead of taking her beatdown gracefully?


* even though that only ended up working for about 10 minutes

Exactly, Maria missed plenty of opportunities on her service games, it wasn't as bad as you said it was. She had chances to win more games.
Beside if you wanna go there, just remember that Maria is losing finals to very good players and not novice like Stosur. Really the US OPEN last year was probably the biggest upset in a major final EVER.

Exactly. I mean, Justine went down in retirement instead of facing a beatdown like that at the AO.
