6/10 it was like breath of fresh air but still tennis wise there was so much potential it started fine then picked up midway but climax was really what let it down

But finals were disappointing on both sides. But something tells me this will be the final year before the new generation begins winning more convincingly.

Semi-Pro
The semis and the finals were one sided but i think it had plenty of good and dramatic matches, especially early on so i would say it was entertaining and i thought it was more interesting than the uso and the french open last year.
 
I enjoyed it, other than being distressed and surprised at the beatdown in the final. And I missed several good matches I couldn’t bring myself to get up in the middle of the night for. Glad to see crowds for part of it, too (although some were on the obnoxious side!) Can’t wait for more tennis.

6/10

One point subtracted for disappointing final

Another two subtracted for missing more than half of the important matches due to different time zones

One more subtracted for lack of Fedr
So it's 8/10. Second part is just your lack of commitment lol...

But yeah I get it. 2020 AO was one of my most favorite ever tournaments, and one of the reasons for that is because I got to watch more tennis there than ever.

Bad finals
Bad semi finals
Bad Quarter Finals, except for Nadal vs Tsitsipas. Djokovic vs Zverev was never in doubt.


Djokovic's quality of tennis in the finals was the highlight, alongside the injury talk

Other than Rafa's collapse against Tsitsipas, and expecting a closer final, I loved it. Too much complaining going on as usual.

The final was supposed to "save" the tournament for us. Super performance by Novak, but still not what we hope for in a slam final.

Overall a weak tournament, with lots of big players missing and few matches of high level.

Actually, the most hated player on TT - NK - was involved in two of the best matches, as bizarre as it may sound.

The Tsitsipas comeback against Nadal was also entertaining. The Tear was the biggest drama.

Unremarkable matches with maybe one or two exceptions, lackluster final and boring straight setter SFs, even a 6/10 is probably a generous score.

Well that was mostly trolling on my part. I did miss way too many matches which definitely hampered my enjoyment of the tournament, but the matches I did watch weren’t that interesting anyway so I think it’d probably still be a 6/10
 
5/10. Not to take away from Djokovic's performance, there were moments when it was better than average (5/10), but this 7/5, 6/2, 6/2 match IMO was a 5. It also begs the question should the men's draw at the major's be the best of 3 sets. TC will replay the men's final, I wonder what viewer rating it will receive and in today's world how much longer 5 set matches will hold viewer attention? Best of 3 may be inevitable.

I'm still not sure why it was so important to put on an event that cost so much because of the pandemic.

The tournament would be a 10 for me just because of the circumstances surrounding it and Djokovic winning but I chose 9 because I was being a little cheeky.

7/10. The finals weren't special, but there were some very entertaining matches: Hsieh reaching her first quarterfinal by beating her beast noir Errani along the way, Osaka saving 2 match points to beat Muguruza, Osaka giving a clinic to Serena of all people, Thiem coming back from 2 sets down to beat Kyrgios, Tsitsipas coming back from 2 sets down to beat Nadal.

Seriously ?? for me if the tournament gives me a Fun time and entertains me then i give it 10 but if they bored me then i give it 0.1. Their JOB is to entertain me... They didn't do that......... They MUST do that.

Fair enough, and I get it. If Novak hadn't won it wouldn't be a 10 for me. Lol. I'm just very happy with the result.

why do you like Nole so much ?? he's such a boring player. Roger is so much more fun player with his variety and rafa too with his amazing topspin no other player can make

It was great to watch some tennis again, so that’s the positive. Now, half of the men’s draw succumbing to abdominal and back injuries, I give it 2/10.

Well tbh, if everyone in the world all liked the same things that would make us pretty boring people right?
