If you were a player, What Grand Slam would you most wish to Win?

I expect we've all imagined lifting a Grand Slam trophy to an adoring crowd at some point? Mine would be Wimbledon as it's on my home turf and the greatest tournament IMO. But what about the rest of us? What Slams would we most like to win and why?

Wimbledon because I like the grass. And also that would make me feel the most like Federer.

USO, because of the crowd, the surface, the central court and the city.

It would definetley be Wimbeldon or the US open as they are far more superior than the Austalian Open and Roland Garros imo. I would say Wimbeldon due to the fact that it is my favorite slam and in my home country, however the US Open is also awesome, so a toss up out of those two really.

I am a total clay specialist (I'm decent on clay and suck on everything else), but I'll still say Wimbledon.
