His capabilities certainly weren't weak, but I understand what you mean. He had been incredibly injury prone before and after Roland Garros 2003 along with motivational issues. He managed to bag a couple of ATP titles during his short spell on tour.

Regarding the Australian Open, Kuerten was the prime example of a big name player that preferred to relax and enjoy the brief off-season, rather than training hard and preparing himself for the Australian summer, unlike someone like Agassi who would run up and down hills. He was usually so sluggish at the start of the season.

The rebound ace surface really should have suited his game pretty well. However his Australian Open record was absolutely terrible for player of his ability, with a 3rd appearance in 2004 his best result in Melbourne, and with him losing more matches than he won there (8 defeats from 15 matches).
