Worst match you've ever seen

G.O.A.T.
Fed vs Gaudio ATP Finals 2005
6-0, 6-0 and Fed wasn't even playing that well. Gaudio was just playing like a 4.0.
That’s what put me off tennis in the TMF days. Fedr was just turning up and winning without even trying, a lot of the time. It was too boring.

I've watched so many, hard to choose. I guess by worst you mean most boring, because even if it's an UE fest the match can still have a lot of drama and be interesting.

For a Slam (final) - definitely 2014 USO Cilic vs Nishikori. Jesus Christ what a snoozefest, wasn't even bothered to watch the highlights of this since the match happened.

Monfils vs Djokovic USO 2016. Though I'm sure one of the matches where Coria or Davydenko had the service yips should be mentioned, but I don't remember them that well.
 
Has there actually ever been a match that literally had no service holds? Imagine 7-6 7-6 with zero holds, anti-bot record lol.
Too bad wta doesn’t have match stats on their site.

check this out, 14 breaks in a 19 game match from 2002 RG(capriati frazier)
There were 11 straight breaks.
And women were probably holding serve at a higher rate In 2002 compared to the 80s.
