For you, what would be more impressive?

Nadal winning the 3 Clay Master Series or winning his 3rd Roland Garros only (no master series)?

I'd say both Options would be about equal in value....

Damn people, no offense intended.

No one has ever won all 3 clay master in a year. I think winning them would be quite an accomplishment.....

The Masters are obviously important, but its all about Paris.

Re: For you, what would be more impressive?

I don't get why this is such a joke to some people? I think winning all three masters is a MUCH more impressive achievement. That's 18 matches to 7. A good RG draw and you can turn up in the QFs without really being tested. The three masters is three different weeks with three different forms of clay where you have to be completely at the top of your game. I suppose it's more 'prestigious' to win a third RG crown, but that was not the question...

Re: For you, what would be more impressive?

Winning the French Open for sure. As great as masters series events are, I honestly don't think that they carry that much of a historical significance.

Pete definately. I don't even think that Agassi could give a damn about the fact that he has won more masters series events than anyone else. Would he have traded them all in for a 9th grand slam title? Most probably.

hold on here, your saying he would trade 17 prestigious titles in for a grand slam, sure a grand slam is more prestigious than a few masters series but 17? your talking so much crap your arse must be jealous. thats 8500 ranking points, to 1000. and so much more prize money.
