Re: MTF: How is the Australian Open viewed as a "grand slam"?
As for the quality of the tournament itself recently, 2009 and 2012 editions were by far the best slams of their respective years. 2010, 2011 and 2013 editions were terrible though, seems to be all or nothing with this one.
It's still equal to the others though
