I expect we've all imagined lifting a Grand Slam trophy to an adoring crowd at some point? Mine would be Wimbledon as it's on my home turf and the greatest tournament IMO. But what about the rest of us? What Slams would we most like to win and why? ;)

Wimbledon because I like the grass. And also that would make me feel the most like Federer.

USO, because of the crowd, the surface, the central court and the city. :)

USO because bigger is better.
And I hate traditions.

It would definetley be Wimbeldon or the US open as they are far more superior than the Austalian Open and Roland Garros imo. I would say Wimbeldon due to the fact that it is my favorite slam and in my home country, however the US Open is also awesome, so a toss up out of those two really.

as french I have to say Roland Garros.

Like many others french, I was wondering last time why The French always talking about roland garros and perhaps one beautiful day win it.
I found that its been so many years ago that a french player won roland garros. Its a personal quest, a thing so big to acoomplish in your home country.Yes.That would be electrifying to win that slam.:D

whichever pays most, i mean net not gross.. minus taxes and everything.. you can only win one time (i mean in this scenario) might as well make more money, a grand slam is a grand slam.

The US Open. No player sucks on a hard court. Grass and clay are specialist surfaces. There are only a handful of players who excel on those surfaces. That's why I think winning the US Open or the Australian Open is harder.

The Aus Open as it is my home tournament then Wimbledon, French Open and the US Open. I don't know whether it is because it is on at an unsuitable time but I don't enjoy the US Open as much as the other three grand slams.

Being my home Grand Slam, probably the Aus Open, but Wimbledon for history and prestige and RG for class, uniqueness and seemingly how difficult it is to win. The only one I'm not fussed about is the US Open.
