Default Is winning home slam as important as winning Wimbledon?

Wimbledon is definitely the slam players want to win the most. But, I have a feeling that e.g. US Open is very important for Andy Roddick. But, is winning home slam as important as winning Wimbledon, or maybe even more important?

Everybody plays better at home, even Andy Murray.

Not really true. Many in fact have played WORSE due to home crowd pressure. To he OP's question, i don't really think it matters either way as to which is more important. A slam is a slam.

Hewitt played a lot better at wimbledon than aussie open. He was just a better grass court player. Surface is also important.

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned...
