What is more amazing: French Open win or Queen's win ?

What do you think ?

Rafa not losing a set en route to his fourth French Open win, bagelling Federer and losing 3 games against Almagro.

Rafa winning the Queen's defeating grass court specialists such as Karlovic and Roddick.

Tell me !

Allez Simon, you rock

The FO showed he's pulling away on clay. Plus Federer is not as good this year as he was.
Queens just showed how well he competes. He could easily have lost to Karlovic. Roddick played a sloppy match.

How about the fact that he did both in a span of 2 weeks

For him I think Queens. It's the first grass tournament he has won, must feel special.

I would be very surprised if Nadal considered the Queens win to be bigger than the FO.

Need ideas for a new signature...

FO no doubt. Players wouldn't swap a Grand Slam for anything – that's what they are playing for

Queen's is an important win, but at the end of the day it's 'just another tournament'

I guess 'bigger' isn't the appropriate term here. Of course the FO title is more important, but I indeed got the impression that his very first title on grass meant a lot to him. I'm sure this title gives him even more confidence going into Wimbly, and he has said on numerous occasions that the Wimbledon Title is the one he wants to win the most...

French Open.

He equalled Borg's record of 4 wins a row there.

Queens no doubt a great win for him, but at the end of the day a slam is better then anything in Tennis.

Re: What is more amazing: French Open win or Queen's win ?

The way in which he won the FO, as well as the fact that it was his 4th in a row is much more 'amazing'.

The Queens win was certainly much more unexpected. And that makes it special in a totally different way.

Never miss an opportunity to make others happy, even if you have to leave them alone in order to do it.

Re: What is more amazing: French Open win or Queen's win ?

These are different things in my opinion, winning the fourth straight French Open (a Grand Slam) in the way he did is amazing as well it is big winning a grass court tournament (second most prestious after Wimbledon) for the first time when he grew up on clay entirely. Indeed all Rafa is doing is amazing. But we can't compare a high class tourney like Queen's to a Grand Slam like Roland Garros.
