Poll: Who is the biggest 1 slam wonder of the noughties?

Which player who either won 1 grand slam title in their career, or 1 grand slam in the noughties is the luckiest player?

Yan Carlos Fererro

Yan Martini Del Potro

Borat Ivansovic

Novacum Djokovic

Gastric Bypass Goredayo

Andy Roddick

Gustavo Curtains

Albert Costa

Thomas Yohanassen

In my opinion the most opportunistic was Rodddick. He was lucky to make the final.

"I did not play my best tennis, no? And..that is what enable him to win..to win this match no? "

- Rafael Nadal, ever so "humble", - press conference after shock 4 set loss to Robeen Soderling @ 2009 French Open 4th round.

Re: Poll: Who is the biggest 1 slam wonder of the noughties?

My God, I remember making a Kuerten/curtain joke with my brother back in 2002, when I was a teenager, for heaven's sake (obviously this was a year before your birth, OP).

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

If he really is 7 years old he is excused and actually quite smart for his age, but I fear that is not the case...

Re: Poll: Who is the biggest 1 slam wonder of the noughties?

At first I wanted to go with Nolewonder, but did those other mugs win slams too? Oh I can't believe how bad this sport was before Federer came and saved it.

I choose Nolito and Martini. Shame on them. Duck did well. Others are just the history you never want to remember.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Re: Poll: Who is the biggest 1 slam wonder of the noughties?

people voting for roddick or djokovic are insane. it's probably gaudio. he has won jackshit except his FO title and he did poorly in all the other slams.

It's more like a display of an awful match up, brainless tactics and chokefests.
