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?

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?

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.

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

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.
