Alphabetic Order?!!!
I so found another way.

Australian Open - 14 letters
French Open - 10 letters
Wimbledon - 9 letters
US Open - 6 letters

They must order them in order of decresing number of letters

Correct me if I'm wrong but the size of people the main court holds increases for each Grand Slam too.

Holy ballsack! If you change the letters to numbers, the first letter/number goes in chronological order(besides Wimbledon and US Open, but who gives a spit? It's still the only reason that the slams are in that order!)

I always wondered how much refs actually get paid.

SQ:
How does the machine measure the speed of player's serve??? Is the speed measured when the ball leave the racket or the timing it passes the net???

I remember there being a discussion on this (btw your question is not stupid) at the USO a few years ago because some of best umpires went missing due to the low rates. $500 a match I think was mentioned but not sure. That's for umpires.

alphabetical order of colour, clearly.

AO - blue
FO - crimson
W - green
US - quite dark blue

so obvious.

I actually asked that already somewhere in this thread. It's measured as the ball leaves the racket, before it hits the surface. So the surface doesn't matter to the measured speed.
