Just like last year, this AO is full of drama. Heck compared to this year, last year's quarantine drama looks lukewarm. Either they should have allowed or banned Novak from the get go. Now Novak is in limbo. He wins the case against his detention but now gets arrested. It won't be a grand slam if the most successful champion (9 times) at AO, 3 time defending champion misses out on his favorite court trying to achieve history by winning the most slams (21). Djokovic and TA have some faults but the Assie govt has acted in ways that leaves a lot to be desired. I hope Novak gets to play if not the tournament loses its shine. The only other star is Rafa. Med and Zed can provide some spark. I guess AO will return to its 90s value of being the least favored slam. In the 00s, they tried to market it as a "happy slam" but asstralia is not a happy place methinks.
I totally forgot about it so must be the case with other tennis enthusiasts. Medvedev and Thiem to play the finals defeating Nadal and Djokovic in the SF respectively. Medvedev also beat Djokovic in the RR and so did Thiem against Nadal. What was interesting is both of them came from behind to win against the players of the caliber of djokodal. Nadal was serving for the match at 5-4 when Medvedev broke him and won the tiebreaker and won the third with a break. Thiem had multiple opportunities in the second set and was trailing in the third set tiebreaker 0-4 but won it 7-5. I have put a poll up for what the reason could be. @Gollum@I6MTW@velu@Cricketics@coffee_rules@SK_IH You can tag in others as well
