Re: favourite slam

Now that the grass at Wimbledon plays like real crap, I'd say the USO provides a much better spectacle.

Re: favourite slam

Difficult.

Believe Australian Open produces best tennis and fairest surface.
Wimbledon has the historic element and much prefer the conduct of the crowd.

French Open and US Open both fail strongly of the conduct of the crowds; FO with the mindless elements and the US Open with its vicious nationalism and intolerence of foreigners.

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 17 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
Nadal 14 GS, 27 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 9 GS, 4 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.

I like Roland Garros because it's played on my favorite surface and it's the only Grand Slam, I know Roger will probably never win!

Ginepri*Ferrero*Robredo*Roddick*Serra*Murray

Safin*Becker*Benneteau*Gonzalez*Golovin

~~~Go Gilles Muller!~~~

IT'S TIME TO TAKE FEDERER DOWN!!!

Re: favourite slam

I like them all. I can't decide. Australian Open has no rain delays. Roland Garros produces great rallies. Wimbledon allows for more interesting rallies. Volleying and the like. US Open allows for more attacking tennis.


Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

Re: favourite slam

I like hard courts, so that narrows it down to two. Of those two, one is like sitting in a sauna and is quite uncomfortable, so I think you can guess my pick.

Re: favourite slam

I picked the French because I like the way clay-court tennis is played. You really have to work for your points. However, I think the Australian Open has provided some of the best tennis of recent years.

Wimbledon is my least favorite. Points are too fast, and nobody truly plays grass court tennis anymore. Roger could if he had too, but he doesn't.
