Why the Australian Open is the best slam...





Already there is the ability to watch like seven or eight of the courts during the main draw in singles, doubles and mixed doubles, as well as the junior tournament, and now this. Amazing. Best slam by a long shot.

They got the nicest stadiums and grounds in tennis, that's for sure. Every time I think about I just can't believe that they can roll a roof over a lousy football team in Seattle but they can't manage to roll one over Ashe.

Re: Why the Australian Open is the best slam...

it is the best slam in so many ways and the best run slam.

it is right up there with roland garros for me. love them both but clay is sort of in my blood.

Re: Why the Australian Open is the best slam...

Well all this coverage is justified, being the AO the MM slam. Will it be on Disney Channel?

Re: Why the Australian Open is the best slam...

That's not the only reason. When I went to the US Open last year I couldn't believe how badly organized it was compared to the Oz Open. Also the stadiums are way better. the weather is great, and it's always exciting kicking off a new year, you never know how things are going to go. Definately the best Slam.

Re: Why the Australian Open is the best slam...

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'.

NOLE - RAFA - ROGER - DELPO - MUZZA - TSONGA

Also supporting: Rusty, Pics, Nalby, Nando, Baggy, Kei, Isner, Blake, Kolya, Berdych, Richie, Soderling, Gil

Ana - Wozzy - Vika - Kimmy - Makiri

AGASSI,RAFTER,SAFIN

Heheh, never knew the AO had a 5th set tiebreak, Stupid Saturday or 3 day 1st round matches.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
