Re: Rank Slams since 2011 on the ASTERISK scale from 1-10

A better way to do this is to see how many asterisks each got, not on a scale of 1-10. For example, 2013 Wimbledon can have an asterisk for Nadal's early loss, Fed's early loss, and one asterisk for all the retirements/withdrawals to give it 3 asterisks (could have more, but didn't want to look into it).

That is a good idea. You should create a separate thread on that for this year’s AO. I can already count 4 *s already. One for Nadal’s back, one for the heat, one for Djokovic’s clownish volley on MP vs. Wawrinka, one for blisters…

No need for a separate thread, it can be done here. Also maybe another * for Del Po's oddball loss to RBA. Ooh, also one for Fognini's obvious tank to Nole, for Tomic's retirement, and for Warlocq's graciousness

Agreed, except for the RBA one because pushing vulture Delpo wasn't a threat.

That puts it up at a tally of 7 asterisks Do you think ITF officials should rescind Stan's trophy now?

Re: Rank Slams since 2011 on the ASTERISK scale from 1-10

2011

AO (Djokovic) - 3 (Nadal getting injured against Ferrer, beating Nadal in a possible final would've been a tougher ask than beating Murray due to experience)
FO (Nadal) - 4 (if Djokovic beat Federer given how their matches went that year there was a good chance he would've beaten Nadal too)
W (Djokovic) - 4 (if Federer got past Tsonga he probably would've beat Djokovic in the semis)
USO (Djokovic) - 1 (had to beat both Federer and Nadal back to back. One of the least asterisked Slams)

2012

AO (Djokovic) - 1 (again, had to beat Nadal and Murray back to back over 5 Slams, hardly asterisked)
FO (Nadal) - 2 (some Djokertards will say that the delay saved him, but I don't think that's fair as Nadal was dominating before the conditions changed)
W (Federer) - 3 (got lucky with Rosol taking out Nadal, but still need to take out Djokray back to back and also dealt with back problems during the tournament, so not really asterisked)
USO (Murray) - 5 (not as asterisked as everyone says IMO. Yes his level of play was poor by the standards of most Slam winners, but everyone else had to deal with the conditions too. Not having to face Fedal though is a major plus)

2013

AO (Djokovic) - 5 (semi-asterisked, this one. Not playing a member of the Big 4 in the semis and Murray being hobbled by blisters is an advantage though Djokovic did play well)
FO (Nadal) - 4 (both players had chokes at times in that semi, so I'm not sure whether Djokovic missing a routine smash makes that Slam asterisked)
W (Murray) - 3 (easy draw, and did get an advantage from Fedal being taken out, but still he needed to beat Djokovic in the final so it's not really that asterisked)
USO (Nadal) - 3 (ditto)

2014

AO (Wawrinka) - 6 (obviously the choke in the third set would've cost him more if Nadal was actually fit, but he was up a set and a break before Nadal started complaining about his back problem, and he still he needed to take the Top 2 players out, and would a lesser player be in that position before Badbackdal?)

RIP Henry Chinaski. A true MTF legend

First of all, love the new avi.

And I guess Del Po was a non factor, but he still could have won and it wouldn't have been that much of a surprise.

Oh come on...

The only asterisk Slam in the Open Era was the 1973 Wimbledon.

There is NO other.
