It's called the wooden spoon on the WTA forum.

2011 RG Brands.

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

Bernard Tomic or Daniel Brands

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).
