This has been the most surprising slam since 2017 AO by far, with Federer losing a 2-0 lead to Anderson, Djokovic winning an epic battle against Nadal and taking the title to end his two-year drought. It has been a slam of memorable matches, with Nadal-Del Potro, Djokovic-Nadal, Anderson-Federer and Anderson-Isner going the distance. The pair of semifinals lasting 12 hours is one for the record books and probably will be unparalleled for decades. After 5 straight slams with disappointing second weeks, this one certainly delivered in epic fashion, which will be more appreciated after this era ends. In addition, Wawrinka upsetting Dimitrov and Gulbis’s run to the 4th round are also notable surprises of the tournament. The anticlimactic final and relatively dull first week take a bit off this tournament, but I still give it a 9 for the element of surprise and epic matches.
