Which tournament is the 'fifth slam'? ( Davis Cup, WTF & the Olympics excluded)

Importance, venue, overall swag, everyone has their own reasoning. Davis Cup, WTF and the Olympics are not eligible.

I personally can't decide between Monte Carlo and Queens.

Re: Which tournament is the 'fifth slam'?

Proper answer is Houston.

The other is none.

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".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

Silly question. It's clearly Umag.

Queen's is a 250, so is Umag and Doha.
