What was the worst Grand Slam since 2005 ?

In my opinion, it was by far Wimbledon 2010, followed by the USO 2012 and FO 2010. These three tournaments was ridiculous, especially Wimbledon 2010 final (Nadal/Berdych), it was the worst final of Grand Slam I've ever seen !

What do you think ?

French Open 2005 when a disgusting cheat made his way to the final. At least he didn't win.

On Murray

Re: What was the worst Grand Slam since 2005 ?

2010 was a weak year overall in terms of Slams. Del Potro out all year after winning USO 2009, Federer having his worst year since 2003 and slumping big time, Djokovic having service yips and not beating a top 10 player until September, Murray underwhelming too... Berdych and Soderling reaching Slam finals playing great tennis but then folding like cheap tents in the final.

Among the top players, only Nadal was at his best, which made for quite NID proceedings.

USO 2012 where the winner played average the whole tournament and got away with it thanks to chokes, climate and scheduling.

good call with Wimbledon 2010, but 2011 was even worse. Finals specially, one of the worst in past 10 years or so

USO 2012 wasn't a great slam in terms of quality but definitely a great and deserved winner.
