I like lots of tennis, first round however usually has a lot of mugs who are totally out of place on the surface. Round 2 often sees a few matches where good unseeded players can pull an upset. Round 3 is pretty close as well, either or is fine.

I also predicted that once I said that someone would vote for it.

But your reasoning seems like you're not just voting that to be different, so fair enough.

Usually 4 QFs. Just to watch some other players playing well in the tournament. The QF at RG this year was awesome.

There tends to be a clown playing out of his mind, no later than QF

If Nadull had an argument for GOAT, it's that he got so far with no talent. It's like dragging a dying weasel across a long road. He gets there, but it's an ugly sight to behold. Nadull is a classless cheat, and a pretender.

Roger Federer(on Nadull): "He's one-dimensional, he always plays the same way."

I'm one of those who likes to watch good players and also some lesser known players or even total mugs. It makes the GS experience so much more interesting than those routine QFs or SFs with top players playing each other all the time.

So I voted for 4th round, but I also like 2nd or 3rd round since there is better chance of seeing the south tyrolean sex tennis machine.

R1. Only time I get to see most of my favourites play whilst all the tards flex their muscles after their favourite won 6-0 6-0 6-1 or go into meltdown mode when their favourite only wins 6-0 6-0 6-2.

I prefer the quarter finals . We get 4 high quality matches and most of them include 2 memebers of the top 8 or inform players

Semis or Quarters.

Semis because it's usually vry good quality matches. And Quarters because you get good quality, but there is also a chance of an upset

How good are you at picking the right ones? 1st round I always hear good things afterwards of matches I didn't see and not so much about those I did...of course, TV channels here tend to focus on the big names, which often progress easily while not playing their best.
