What was wrong with the 2006 AO? Baghdatis played well and reached the final. Even years past his best he's capable of pushing today's top players. He gave Murray a hell of a fight at Wimbledon last year for example. He David Nalbandian on the way to final who was coming off his YEC win over Federer as well. A player gets hot for a tournament and does some damage, that what happens when there's depth...

Federer beat Tommy Haas and Davydenko on the way to the final, both of those are good players. His form at the AO 06 wasn't too great either. An Open era major >>> Amateur major.
