Most one-sided GS final ?

I know it's a little late, but anybody knows which was the most one-sided Grand Slam final ever (in the light of the recent 6-1, 6-3, 6-0 between Rafa and Roger) ?

Re: Most one-sided GS final ?

From ATP:

Federer-Nadal was the second most one-sided Roland Garros final in the Open Era after the 1977 final, where Guillermo Vilas defeated Brian Gottfried 6-0, 6-3, 6-0.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

It was bolelli , not fish.

Hernandez retired in the semifinal because he had enough of grass.

I like Borg's FO '78 stat;

SF def Barazzutti, Corrado (ITA), 6-0 6-1 6-0

F def Vilas, Guillermo (ARG), 6-1 6-1 6-3



And that is one year after Vilas destroyed Gottfried in the FO final!

There have been others. McEnroe '84...Connors '74. Their opponents were really old...I think Rosewall was around 40.

But even recetnly, agassi against schuttler was similar.



Edit: but in the open era, the least games one was the vilas FO in '77.
