Winning which of the following tournaments is the more prestigious?

Thread title says it all, really.

Since we all can agree that the 4 slams are the most important, followed by the WTF, which is most prestigious after that?

Re: Winning which of the following tournaments is the more prestigious?

For me, its Wimbledon, If I retired prematurely but still won Wimbledon, I would be satisfied with my career. Everything else doesn't mean to me as much.

Re: Winning which of the following tournaments is the more prestigious?

Wish it was DC but sadly it's not. Olympics? Not even sure tennis belongs there.

Indian Wells/Miami/Monte Carlo? At least one of them should be a 500. They are the best options to downgrade. Of the rest I pick Paris. Indoor got no slam so that makes Paris most prestigious (in my book)

Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?
LOOK AT ME!
LOOK AT ME, BOY! THESE ARE THE SCARS OF APPEAL MODERATION!
Take a good long stare, you know you want to.
You're not even man enough to look at my face.

Appeal moderation isn't pretty, you have to watch your friends go to dust.
Appeal moderation is always hungry for your soul and sweet emotions.

Re: Winning which of the following tournaments is the more prestigious?

Rome is probably the most prestigous of the master series events if we look back at history.

Olympics feels more important than anything else on the list, however Davis cup is a team effort and not individual prestige.

All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.
