Talking Worst Grand Slam Matches of the Year?

Well Nim covered the best, so being the pessimist that I am I felt it just wasn't right to cover the opposite end of the spectrum

By worst, I mean matches that on paper could have been, or were hyped up to be great, and just weren't. Or matches that an overwhelming favourite lost in rather pathetic fashion

Matches that you watched and gave a " *blink* wtf was that!!!??" reaction too.

Two off the top of my head would include:

Roddick-Sampras USO
Costa-Ferrrero RG

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

And how dare I forget Kafel vs Alex Kim at Oz.

All due respect to Alex, but wtf was that

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Oh yes TBE I forgot about that one

Though personally I had picked Greg to win that one, and didn't consider Roddick the fave. Just based on serve, Greg still trumps him. So it wasn't the worst for me in that way.

But to each his own

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

RG Final. Must you bring that up I'm still in denial Okay, time to come to term with reality. It was pretty bad.

I haven't really seen this one, but based on the score, I'll say it's pretty ugly. Gambill over Gaudio 0-2-0 in USO.

Ferrero-Costa RG final How many times can a person cry over that one?

Corretja-Costa RG at least the first two sets

Hewitt-Nalbandian Wimby final

Roddick-Sampras USO

What's so funny 'bout peace, love and understanding?

@myself. Not enough apparently! He did managed to squeeze one set out while playing horribly though, mind you.

Federer & Ancic is much worse than Federer & Arazi. Arazi was on.

That Moya and Gambill in USO, I watched it and wished that I didn't.
