If there's one event you could win as a pro and then retire,

which would it be? Supposing you were a player and had the skills to win any tournament on the atp tour on a hot run, which atp/itf event would you like to win most, be satisified and then retire afterwards?

For me, If I won Wimbledon at least once, I would be satisfied with my career and then retire happily.

Definitely Wimbledon by far. Such history and tradition, all the GOAT contenders have won it, such memorable victory celebrations, etc. Second would have to be US Open just because I'm American. AO and FO wouldn't be too shabby either :p

There are only two plausible reasons for any answer other than Wimbledon:
1)Money
2)Tournament of your hometown/country

As a French I will say Roland-Garros : it was also the nearly only great tournament which Yannick Noah, my ideol before Federer, did win

I won it with him in a way :D

WIMBLEDON or US OPEN.

Wimbledon for many reasons, it is the most strongly contested title often because it has the most prestige and respect worldwide and in the history of the sport. if you ask someone random what the US OPEN is they won't know if you're talking about golf or tennis, but if you ask someone random what Wimbledon is they will know.

however I am an American and the US OPEN has probably the most passionate and incredible crowds in the world... it would be an honor and an amazing feeling to win the title in front of such a crowd, in front of my people.

tough very very tough

Obvious answer is obvious - Wimbledon.

I think with the pound as high as it is currently, Wimbledon may be your event ;). I also love the use of Davydenko logic.

TBH any GS. But if I had to be more specific, by far and away it has to be Wimberz :hearts:

It would be a tie between the French Open and Wimbledon. I would get to meet my two favorite players, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer, who dominate these respective tournaments. I would also like to go to Valencia, home of David Ferrer and Juan Carlos Ferrero. Of course, I don't even play tennis, so that would only be a dream.

US Open, it's my favorite of the four Grand Slams.

Any Grand Slam would be fine though of course.

Amongst the slams, Ok Wimbledon is a clear one, but i'm disappointed that there isn't a bigger gap between the US Open and the other slams. The Greatest City in the world folks
