That's certainly special. We can probably find a one from one to get the percentage record, or at least one from two, but three from seven sounds more impressive, if we can use such a word.

If he does manage to do that he'd be an AO away from the first ever CWS!

And I see Chris Kachel managed to defend a wooden spoon before Greg Rusedski did.

Re: Grand Slam Wooden Spoon Winners

Why am I not surprised to see Troicki on that coveted list?

Even when he's not on the court his mediocrity affects his vanquished future opponents


The guy is one big chain letter.Avoid!

Here is a really possible path that could revert this:

Djokovic/Federer - Murray - Wawrinka/Raonic - Monfils - Kuznetsov - Sela - Verdasco - Nadal

Indeed according to seeding the most likely outcome is Nadal will get wooden spoon here
