no, they weren't...

the roddick-el ayanoui match in the QF was one of the best matches of all time ..

fed-nalby had a good , but up and down match ....

you had hewitt and ferreria in the mix as well ...

not a very strong AO, but not a depleted one either ...

yes, rosewall had relatively bad years in 67 and 69 ... coincidence that laver had his best years then , I think not ...

and agassi at 33 years of age was playing much much better than gonzales at 40-41 years of age ... federer won all matches vs agassi since 2003 and laver lost a few vs gonzales after gonzales turned 37+ and was worse off than agassi at 33-35 ... go figure ..
