In an alternate reality where Stan won the whole thing, I give it 10/10.

4/10 the way this one went.

AO and RG are least interesting slams.

7/10 but the mediocrity was to be expected once rafa announced that he will skip it.

I gave it a 5 but I may have been generous. The AO has become one of the lamest slams as of late.

Below average, probably 4.
All of 2012's slams were much more interesting.

6/10. So decent matches but for the most part predictable results and mediocre tennis

Only judging on the men's side...if i take the women's result the grade goes down to like 2 or 3

A 6. It was an OK first week, with some nice tense matches, but surprisingly few. The second week was nothing special.

Djokovic writing tennis history and giving us an epic match with Wawrinka.

10/10.

no Rafa, predictable as never before and if there wasn't the Djokovic - Wawrinka match it could easily be a 0

Default Re: Rate the 2013 Australian Open

I rated it 3/10

Djokovic was expected to win and won. He only played one epic match.
Murray was expected to make the final and he made it, he wasn't challenged the whole tournament unless you count the NID win over Fed.
Federer and Ferrer made the semi's as expected. Tsonga and Berdych both fell away in the big moments as expected.

The only real upset the entire tournament was Del Potro losing early, and that early loss made Murray's quarter so much more boring than it already was. Raonic couldn't challenge, Jerzy could have made the tournament more exciting but he was unable to create the upset, Tomic was floored in straights...

The whole tournament was just a replay of the status quo of the tour from last year, minus Rafa.
