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.
