2004 US Open.

I know it's not on the list but it really belongs there.

"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."

You're a Nole fan you'd probably agree the Wimbledon he won was pretty low quality (with a DIRE final for grass tennis) but he still got the W no one will change that.
Certainly, I have no issue with Murray fans celebrating it. It doesn't particularly matter after all. He adapted to the conditions better than Nole did for the first two sets, that's for sure.

Also, it had the worst 1st round of a Slam I can remember with plenty of crap televised matches. All in all, very few memorable matches and most for bad reasons (ie Cilic's choke).
Very much this. Apart from anything else, slams should be much better organised.

Cilic has lost a Slam QF or SF three times. In all of the said occasions, he was up at least a set and a break (two breaks this year vs Murray) and then went on to lose in 4 - Delpo USO 2009 QF, Murray AO 2010 SF, Murray USO QF.

He's remarkably consistent in the way he implodes deep in Slams

USO 2012. Bad matches in terms of quality. Joke of an organisation. Joke of a final due to the bad weather

Well he lost to the winner twice. In 2009 he'd just beaten Murray, in 2010 he was tired after a trio of long matches and in 2012, well 2012 was a classic moment, I laughed for a few minutes after the result. Cilic probably did too after reciving a £200,000 cheque from the czech after.

He's a average player with the mental ability of a 2 year old. The only wins he has are after the opposition assults the line judge.

USO 12, and its not even debatable. Most disgusting tournament with also a disgusting winner. A so-so fit Nole would be enough to destroyed the pusher.

Re: What was the worst Grand Slam since 2005 ?

Also perhaps I would say US Open 2012 too in terms of quality and lack of good organization, I'm not bias, it was poor, but the winner deserved it whether Murray haters like it or not.

I guess any FedTard would vote for any slam Fed didn't make the Semi Final of.

Mark Lenders banged your girlfriend, I'm sorry to tell you that mate.

Re: What was the worst Grand Slam since 2005 ?

USO 2012 was awful although I didn't mind Andy winning

USO 2010 was all around horrific, that Nadal-Verdasco match should be banned from tennis history

Re: What was the worst Grand Slam since 2005 ?

US Open 2012 was bad for the reasons posted by ML but another bad event was wimbledon 2010 . It had a great first week with a lot of great matches but the second week was downright bad . To top it off we had that final where Nadal played his C game and still won in straights . In the second week , I cant remember a single 5 setter from that event which was of great quality .

2010 was really not such a good year in retrospect , Fed was bad for the year after Australia , Djokovic did not have a serve and Murray just went AWOL after that final in AO . DP got hurt and missed the whole year . Even Nadal did not play close to his best tennis but just better than the rest which is why he dominated

Re: What was the worst Grand Slam since 2005 ?

2012 USO no contest. The final was diabolical stuff. Saying Murray had immense luck to win the tournament isn't sulking - it's just fact. He won and that's all that matters for him and his fans. It was a shit tournament all round no matter how you spin it.

Rg08

N.I.d winner
Sub par Federer
Boring final imo

God is Love. To know Love is to know God. So ask yourself if you hold any hate for another in your heart how can you have room for Love, room for God
