Is there a stat for this?
Seeing the many five set matches we've had in Australia, I was wondering what were the slams with the most five setters in the past.

It's not as much as you think it is. There have been 18 5-setters in AO2011 through these first 2 rounds. If we compare that to last year through 2 rounds, AO2010-18, FO2010-17, WIM2010-23, USO2010-19. I do agree that it has been an exciting tournament, but maybe because there have been many comebacks from 2 sets down. And if interested the final five set numbers for last year were: AO2010-25, FO2010-22, WIM2010-30, USO2010-24. I can probably find other years, with the website I use, it only takes a few seconds.

AO2009:22 FO2009:22 WIM2009:28 USO2009:19
AO2008:21 FO2008:20 WIM2008:22 USO2008:22
AO2007:24 FO2007:19 WIM2007:22 USO2007:21
AO2006:27 FO2006:24 WIM2006:24 USO2006:25
Don't feel like doing more, you get the idea, usually between 20-30 a tournament. Going just by the 5-set numbers, 2010 was actually a pretty exciting year, but many people would argue that.
