Question Which is your favourite round of a Grand Slam?

Suppose you are only allowed to watch one round of a Grand Slam. which one would you choose?

The latter rounds have more at stake and higher ranked players but there are less matches. So your choice is to watch one of the following:
  • 64 1st round matches
  • 32 2nd round matches
  • 16 3rd round matches
  • 8 4th round matches
  • 4 Quarter-finals
  • 2 Semi-finals
  • 1 Final

My choice would be round 3. You get to witness plenty of seed on seed action as well as seeing if any of the surprise runs progress further. (I hope this is a legitimate off-season question. )

Semis are usually the most exciting matches I find. At least in recent years.
FO 2011, US 2010, US 2011, AO 2012, etc. If I could pick a round to attend I would choose semis for sure. I always go to USO semis and for 2013 I'm going to Roland Garros. hopefully semis also.

The one where Novak Djokovic, the best player in the world, mercilessly dispatches of his opponent.

Semi's

Final sometimes disappoints because the nerves are too big with all that's on the line, in the semi's you usually see awesome quality match ups and you even get 2 matches instead of 1.

The final, except when there's wind (then it's the worst round).

The QFs because you get 4 matches which is plenty and there are always some chances of an upset which is cool.

QFs are often the best matches. Sometimes SFs can be great too, but finals rarely are.
