          After Oz: Ten predictions for the year’s majors

A familiar male captured the title after some unpredictable and unfamiliar situations — see five-hour match with Stan. Azarenka took a beating, so we’ll back off here, provided the mysterious injury timeout doesn’t happen again. And here are 10 other things from the hippest major to date:

Five things we will see again in 2013:

  • Novak Djokovic winning a major. Where? Anywhere. He’s that good, as we know, and his game is that versatile, as we know.
  • Novak Djokovic ripping off his T-shirt. The guy likes to rip off his T-shirt. That’s OK with us. He’s probably very sweaty after five-hour matches. We won’t blame him.
  • No American man advancing to the second week of a major.
  • A final four without Rafael Nadal.
  • Sloane Stephens smiling and winning.

Five things we won’t see again in 2013:

  • Victoria Azarenka taking an injury timeout. Ever.
  • The semifinals of a major without Serena.
  • David Ferrer getting cleaned in 90 minutes, no matter the opponent or the round.
  • Stan Wawrinka losing a five-hour match to any of the Big Four.
  • Li Na being adored by all. (Just kidding.)
