Away from home for AO!:(
Will miss CET and staying from midnight to early morning hours for AO, because
hey; another interesting match is on!
Looks like after all not becoming a living zombie this time around as
Gallons of Coffee, snacks and pretty much all kinds of food and spirits body can handle at that time
would otherwise follow accordingly.
Also Luckily NOT betting this time!

How else you would consider betting on a Slam that had following results;
Finals

2008 Tsonga
2007 Gonzales
2006 Bagdathis
2003 Shutller
2001 clement

And yes, certain Thomas Johansson as a winner in 2001!

To sum up; how crazy you have to be following 2 weeks of tennis throughout the night?

Still can`t help it; I am an AO addict, but not the only one ;)

AO and Wimby. Both equal with different reasons.

Yes, this one is my favorite, also because every year there are a lot of surprises here.

this and Wimbledon are very close. if i were going to compare them just based on the tournament alone (the history, the quality) i would probably choose Wimbledon but the reason that I love the Australian Open so much is because it begins the season and is often an exciting first big tournament of the year.

it's great because it really gives off big signs of what players are going to bring in the current year!

Wimbledon and Australia are both awesome. Wimbledon probably the better tournament for obvious reasons (grass, come on!/history) but Australia is fun to start off the year and the blue courts are... interesting!

AO. I like how organized it is and I don't have to stay up late to watch the matches. Gorgeous trophies too.

Wimbledon. No matter how hard the organizers try to fuck that great tournament and its surface up, Wimbledon is still the most special slam.

But yes, I agree in pure tennis terms, AO perhaps sees some of the best matches.

Even though the court is slow, and I prefer fast courts, I like AO best, followed by Wimbledon. AO just seems really relaxed and fun, and there's always a surprise deep run.

USO next, especially since it's in my time zone, and then RG :ras:

Yes, Wimbledon is special. But not so good to watch like AO. All that chilli hot sun, crowds from all over the world, waching late night here in Europe. That's really cool.

As for Wimbledon, there is no anything similar in tennis than Wimbledon final.

I always watch as much of the AO as I can, even though the time zone is beyond appalling for Europe. I just love its atmosphere so much, definitely my favourite.
