Re: Favourite Grandslam?

Aussie Open~ I've been going there every year since 1987 & comparing it to the other Slams i watch on TV; well quite frankly we Aussie's are more friendly & fun loving, also treating all international players with respect (unlike USO).
*A ground pass ticket only costs $20 and with that you can see some pretty big matches on Margaret Court Arena & Vodafone Arena, plus all the players are very accessible and willing to give autographs on the practice courts.
* The weather is usually great & if it rains they can always close the roof on the two main stadium courts.
### Roland Garros is probably my 2nd favourite because it's cool watching the long rallies & many epic 5-set matches in the red dirt. Also the stadium looks just the right size^ not too big(a la USO) & not too old-fashioned(a la Wimbledon).

Re: Favourite Grandslam?

Well, it's close between the Australian Open and Wimbledon, but I voted for Wimbledon, just because I love grass court tennis. The tradition doesn't work for me; the atmosphere in Melbourne always seems much nicer.

Re: Favourite Grandslam?

I don't hate it, but I don't like it at all. Commercialism has taken control of it; it's broadcast at a very poor time, if it is broadcast at all here and the surface is not one I like to watch. For me personally, the US Open should be replaced by a different tournament.

Re: Favourite Grandslam?

I vote for USOpen because it is the tournament I can actually go to every year. For that reason I look forward to it more than the others.

But if I didn't live in NYC, maybe one of the others would be my fave, because the commercialism etc. of the USO irritates me too.

Re: Favourite Grandslam?

I like the USO and Aussie best because I like the courts, the relaxed atmosphere, the fun people, etc.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: Favourite Grandslam?

The terrible line calls and unfair draws at AO are
incomparable to other slams.

Re: Favourite Grandslam?

The US Open? Laid back? Have we been going to the same US Open? Yikes. Fast paced and loud? Yes. Laid back? No.

Anyways, I voted for Roland Garros. Clay court tennis is tops, imo.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.
