US Open hands down, although I think the best single match of the year was the Wimbledon final.

Wimbledon had the best final, USO had great matches in many of the earlier rounds (of course I also remember it better since it just happened).

Re: Which Grand Slam event saw the best quality tennis??

I think it depends on how people look at it. Alot of people seem to be saying Australian Open solely due to Roger Federer's superb performance there. But in terms of overall for performance of players I think the best has got to be Wimbledon.

The BIGGEST (borderline delusional) fan of players on General Message Board according to Forehander:

Re: Which Grand Slam event saw the best quality tennis??

No way it was the AO or RG. Either Wimby or the USO, I'll probably go with Wimby though because of the Henman-Moya match.

Tim Henman--Gael Monfils--James Blake--Donald Young--Rafael Nadal--Jo-Wilfried Tsonga--John Isner--Janko Tipsarevic--Richard Gasquet.

Re: Which Grand Slam event saw the best quality tennis??

I don't think it is good if it is true that some people are basing their opinions on one or two matches. Deciding on the overall quality throughout all the rounds in the events with more weighting towards the later rounds would be a sensible way to come to a decision.

I'd say overall, all of them were let downs (for me).

Not great quality at the slams this year. Wimby was the best, mostly because of the final, but also the QFs. Also that Nadal-Soderling match which seemed to last for almost half the tournament was good entertainment.

Usually the semis provide more entertainment than the finals but this year every single grand slam SF was over in three sets.

Re: Which Grand Slam event saw the best quality tennis??

Depends on how one interprets 'best quality tennis', I guess.

Apart from the obvious differences between HC/Clay/Grass, there's also the psychological element, in terms of 'dramatics' etc.

As for the past year, no question for me - the Wimbly 2007 final. Great match, and yes, the dramatic elements were there as well - in abundance I might say.

Re: Which Grand Slam event saw the best quality tennis??

AO had the best quality of blowouts with Federer and Gonzo putting in superb performances and totally dismantling their opponents. Particularly Gonzo with his stunning annihilations of Hewitt, Blake, Nadal, and Haas in succession. Didn't have any great matches though.

RG seemed pretty dull this year with no memorable matches.

Wimbledon had too much rain as always.

US had some great matches early but from the QFs on everything was a rout.

So none of the slams were very memorable thus it is hard to pick a best. I'd go with AO because of how great Fed played against Roddick and Gonzo from the 3rd round on.
