Default Is Wimbledon the best Slam in terms of quality?

It's easily the best slam in terms of quality (especailly during the 1st week when you can see some real grass tennis).

Nonsense, that's based purely on preference.

Federer, Nadal and Djokovic pander to plutocrats and charge huge appearance fees. The "trickle down effect" means that tournaments like the Heineken Open now have to pay appearance money for racketeers that many of us have never heard of. It's close to extortion.

At the end of Federer's first round match at the Australian Open a fawning interviewer asked about his kids and if he had bought coach Stefan Edberg a birthday present - no, by the way, the privilege of knocking up with 'King Roger' was enough of a present apparently.

Only in the first week or if the roof is closed.

Otherwise its just another slam for the spartans.

Grass >>>>>>>>>> Hard>>>>>>>> Clay. Grass does still reward good attacking tennis. They have slowed grass down a little too much .

AO has better matches on the whole, the off season levels the playing field, though Wimbledon tends to have much better finals.

Default Re: Is Wimbledon the best Slam in terms of quality?

I'd prefer a fastish HC, like Dubai or Cincy, to grass as it enables successful defensive playing but still rewards great offensive playing.

But we're living in the 2010s when the closest you can get to that in slams is the first week of Wimbledon. So yes, Wimby is the best slam. But the2nd week is maybe better at USO.

What one individual poster likes for whatever reason is irrelevant to my point. The only significant difference between Wimbledon and the other slams is its faster speed and lower bounce. A person is going to prefer it only if they prefer fast court tennis. Only other reason would be because of some kind of English chauvinism and that reasoning deserves no respect whatsoever.

First week does. Second week favours the same old retrieving and scrambling (unless those culpable of this are removed early like last year)

It's all about preference and draws (match-ups).

For me, yes. All of the best matches I can think of (in terms of quality) were on grass. It's just so fun to watch, I wish it was longer
