Australian Open is the best run tennis tournament in the world
 
Yeah?

I still feel that it has the least prestige among the 4 slams, BUT, the organizers sure do a hell of a job. I love the website. Hope I can attend this glorious event someday.

What do you think? Is there anything better out there?

The line judges are especially good

Great stadium/courts, great organizers, great audience, good weather except when it's freaking hot.

Yeah...they do a fine job organising things. I visited for the Olympic opening and that was impressive.

The Australian Open has two courts that have a roof? Correct?

And by 2015 will have 3. by that time French Open and US Open still doesn't have one.

Yep, It is a great event that is brilliantly well run which makes it disgusting that the players threatened to boycott this event rather than the farcically run US Open.

For me is the best Grand Slam.

If only they didn't show Spewitt and Trollmic during prime time at RLA. At least with USO, despite it's shit scheduling, you don't see every low ranked American player play at Arthur Ashe every time :o

Both are great players that can put up a good show despite their ranking. Which american players are you comparing with btw?

That's why it's my favorite Slam. Everything is run well Down Under. Plus being in the Americas you can't complain about turning on your tv at 3am to watch live night tennis.
