Re: Which slam was better.....

For me French Open was better because:
1) I was there
2) I am argentinian
3) The final was really amazing... (even I was cheering for el Mago)

AO was good but I think that it lacked from the final surprise..

Re: Which slam was better.....

If you are just talking about the matches, then probably French Open. But the topics on MTF about FO is driving me and a lot of others crazy... soon enough, the whining about the whining will be tiring people as well...

Re: Which slam was better.....

* AO better for me as I didn't have the 'mixed emotions' for the winner as I did at FO

-->> Safin's 5-set wins over Martin/Roddick/Agassi made it a great comeback...
@@ Federer's demolition over Hewitt/Nalbandian/Ferrero/Safin was awesome!!

However FO was certainly more memorable; a miracle for Gaudio vs tragedy for Coria..

Re: Which slam was better.....

I really enjoyed both GS! The Australian Open was great because Federer won it after going through a very tough draw (and got the #1 position), and it was also the great comeback of Marat! I also liked FO because Guga had a very good run, and Gaston's victory was awesome!

Re: Which slam was better.....

imo the FO really had one awesome match, the finals. the AO had a lot more great matches, so I enjoyed the AO better

Andy Roddick.Fernando Verdasco.Richard Gasquet.Tommy Haas

Re: Which slam was better.....

by and large, the australian... the roger demolition of the firld had a lot to do with it, but we had some awesome matchups with safin, roddick, agassi, federer, nalbandian, ferrero, hewitt.....
french open was cool too, i really liked the final. some of the other matchups suvked though, but there were many interesting things happening throughout the tournament.

Maybe Roger can win Roland Garros.......

Re: Which slam was better.....

australian open for me
the final of the FO had some horrible tennis and the hyped up matches were dull (Coria v Moya) plus to many injures - Safin, Ferrero, Nalbandian, Kuerten, Nadal

Re: Which slam was better.....

Both had some great moments especially the winners, unfortunately I couldn't go to the French this year, cause I would have been able to see most of the close matches.

The FO final was a great result, though far from the best match and I liked them both for different reasons the AO had great matches, unfortunately the best FO matches weren't readily accessible on TV unfortunately.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Which slam was better.....

I chose this year's RG because:

(1) I wasn't home as much as I would've liked for the AO because my Mom was in the hospital in a coma (all is better now though )

(2) This year's Roland Garros went my way in every way possible. And that was an improvement over '03 where Guille was my last favorite in the SFs and went out because of his nerves.

(3) THE FINAL!!!! Although my first choice was David vs. Guille and David winning. To see someone win his first Slam that who I 've rooted for and followed his results for five years. It was an awesome thing.

PAW 2013:
Munich - 2nd place
Halle - 4th place
's-Hertogenbosch - 4th place
GSTAAD - WINNER

The Roland Garros. I just love the red clay.
