2011 RG Brands.

Probably one of the most accurate since he was the weakest player on the draw

Congratulations to Gilles Muller for winning the wooden spoon at this year's AO! :P

Fun idea! So many great things posted here before I registered.

Marat Safin must be unique. A wooden spoon in USO 2004 and then a win in the very next slam. He is also the only one on the list to have achieved both in the same tournament. Though I believe I read somewhere McEnroe once got a wooden spoon in Wimbledon.

This US Open it will be either Karlovic:( (if Djokovic wins) or Kukushkin (if Murray wins).

Exactly :lol: I thought it was funny that I just randomly remembered to check today, and it happened to be one of Kudla's best weeks! Maybe some players should start going for this award more often :p
