Default 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

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

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

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

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