Re: Most embarrassing big final for the WTA 2012?

Wimbledon was the most embarrassing for the WTA for sure. NEVER has there been a major final where BOTH players were playing so appallingly. A friend who hardly ever watches women's tennis was watching with me, I actually felt embarrassed.

Re: Most embarrassing big final for the WTA 2012?

Whilst the Olympics were embarrasing for the WTA in terms of the spectactle, I personally thought the most embarrasing one was the RG final. Errani had absolutely no business being in a slam final and was completely overpowered by Sharapova, as she should have been by either Ivanovic, Kuznetsova or Stosur. It felt more like a 3rd Round slam match where elite big-hitter beats plucky but weaponless no-hoper than a slam final.

Olympics. If it wasn't for some stupid errors from Serena, it would have been 6-0,6-0.

Couldn't agree more with this. Mike Tyson fights were huge, event TV and if you arrived at your friends house to watch it late - like, I mean 30 seconds into the first round late - you were likely out of luck.

However, if we except the OP's premise then, the '07 AO final HAD to be it. Embarrassing finals beat Downs were unprecedented for Maria at that time. that result was shocking, devastating and embarrassing for her. that tournament was supposed to be a confirmation for Maria as the next great, dominant thing. It was supposed to be an anointing for her - confirmation of her ascendancy and justification for her being the WTA "It-Girl."

Perfect post.

I think RG final was one of the most embarrassing of all time, maybe even worse than the 6-0 6-0 Graf handled in 88

At least in the Olympics Final 2 superstars were battling(one getting humiliated) each other, unlike in Paris, where a scrub from nowhere reached the final
