Halle or Queens?

Which was the better tournament out of the two this time round?

Halle looks better suited to be a Masters event then Queens, but thats judging from Shitty Youtube quality videos...Queens club looks pretty small.

Re: Halle or Queens?

Not a lot in it, both had home winners, both had some good matches and some rubbish. I would just give the edge for excitement to Halle.

Re: Halle or Queens?

I like the court at Halle better. I just like that closed in intimate atmosphere.

Re: Halle or Queens?

halle really needs to do something about its grass. it looks greyish, even in the first rounds. it's obviously got a lot to do with the roof, so wimby better learn from halle's experiences.

queens on the other hand is the most beautiful grass around, easily outdistancing wimbledon as well. so amenities-wise, i don't think there are two ways about it: halel is top notch. game-wise (and tv-wise) queens is better in my opinion.

this time i don't think either has had a great tournament: if roger AND nadal withdraw, it's quite obvious that the big dogs will be missed. would haas have won halle had roger come? highly unlikely.

Re: Halle or Queens?

Unfortunately I haven't had much coverage of the Halle tournament so Queens gets my vote this time.

Roger Federer. Legend.

Halle because of the bad bad crowd in London.

For Novak it happened to be the same thing. And for me too.

Halle hands down. Much better atmosphere and a retractable roof to top it off.

Re: Halle or Queens?

Clearly Halle was the stronger tournament this year, with a killer semi-final line-up featuring Olivier Rochus.
