Question Which of the grand slams looks best on tv?

Which of the grand slams looks best on tv?

I change my mind about this often, I enjoyed the Australian Open though, looked very clear on the box. For some reason the US Open is the worst viewing, as if the camera doesn't zoom in enough at least on Ashe Stadium. So I'd put Australian Open ahead of US in terms of viewing.

Wimbledon and Roland Garros I'd have to watch again to decide on, since its been a while since seeing them last year. From what I remember of last year I'd expect it to be like this:
1. Wimbledon
2. Australian Open
3. French Open
4. US Open

Australian Open maybe with the best camera-work but Wimbledon beats it because the grass is so darn tasty looking.

The ones where Nadal wins look the best.

Football is one of the few areas of life where even if you're untutored, you can go to a ground and see George Best beat three men, and you can realise, 'I have seen genius.'

...
***
1. AO [Rod Laver Arena was designed with the cameras in mind, esp new blue court is great].
2. Wimby [as mentioned by theRafa~ grass is "darn tasty looking", though not sure about the new roof].
3. FO [PH stadium is a magnifique venue, though if the sun is bright its hard to see the ball].
4. USO [Arthur Ashe stadium is almost like a baseball arena, too big for tennis].

I agree with you on the grass. AO is good. I generally don't like the look of clay (:P). And I have missed the last couple of USOs.

US open.. you can clearly see the ball unlike the other 3.(if that is what you mean)

less rain as well.

justin bieber is not the best in history.
funk was better than rap.
techno not better than classic rock.

numbers are not everything.

Wimby by far. I agree with theRAFA Grass is the best looking and best (of course) court. Too bad we don't see much of it

Definitely AO and USO with the blue surface. The ball is very easy to see.

Just got to add that they used to look terrible when they were green.

PAW Singles Ranking - 396
TITLES (TMS Rome 04', Rolland Garros 04', Wimbeldon 04')
RUNNER-UP (Rosmalen 04' US Open 04')
