Favorite Slam?

Away from home for AO!
Will miss CET and staying from midnight to early morning hours for AO, because
hey; another interesting match is on!
Looks like after all not becoming a living zombie this time around as
Gallons of Coffee, snacks and pretty much all kinds of food and spirits body can handle at that time
would otherwise follow accordingly.
Also Luckily NOT betting this time!

How else you would consider betting on a Slam that had following results;

2008 Tsonga
2007 Gonzales
2006 Bagdathis
2003 Shutller
2001 clement

And yes, certain Thomas Johansson as a winner in 2001!

To sum up; how crazy you have to be following 2 weeks of tennis throughout the night?

Still can`t help it; I am an AO addict, but not the only one

Re: Favorite Slam?

this and Wimbledon are very close. if i were going to compare them just based on the tournament alone (the history, the quality) i would probably choose Wimbledon but the reason that I love the Australian Open so much is because it begins the season and is often an exciting first big tournament of the year.

it's great because it really gives off big signs of what players are going to bring in the current year!

Wimbledon and Australia are both awesome. Wimbledon probably the better tournament for obvious reasons (grass, come on!/history) but Australia is fun to start off the year and the blue courts are... interesting!

Re: Favorite Slam?

AO is my favorite slam to watch, because here in Argentina is so damn late!
But it's january, so I can be awake aaaaaall night, I love beeing awake all night watching good tennis.

But my favorite slam for what it means, is Wimbledon.

I actually think Bernard Tomic will easily win career-year mixed doubles slam in 2020.

Jealous? Yeah, you are, you dirty hater.

AO. I like how organized it is and I don't have to stay up late to watch the matches. Gorgeous trophies too.
