Aus Open rocks!!! I would so love to go there one day
The scheduling for the most part is good (with the exception of one or two cases), and from what my friends have told me, the facilities are very good.
The best thing about it is that there is always a surprise semifinalist or finalist (2006- Baghdatis, 2007- Gonzo, 2008- Tsonga, 2009- Nando, 2010- Cilic, 2011- ???) so that is why I often consider it the 'surprise slam'.
