Which Grand Slam do you prefer - Roland Garros or Wimbledon?

It is not a question. Wimbledon is the greatest. The question could be - RG or US Open. And the answer is - US Open.

Besides the RG crowd always act like trash.

Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.

Not so much anymore, the other Slams are held in equal esteem. It's just RG is trashy (contradiction,lol).

Equal? That's a PC crap, sorry. AO will never be _EQUAL_ to Wimbledon. NEVER. Wimbledon is a pinnacle. Wimbledon is worth as much as any other two Slams together. Perhaps more than 2 AOs.

Well certainly the Spaniards don't think so - RG is the one to win for them.

It's not about money, it's about prestige and the history and all that. Well that's what ppl say over here anyway. Disagree with it though.

That's just because they can't win anything else. Natural. Should JCF have won last USO, it could have been a different tune already.

I judge all slams on a case by case basis.

If my faves do good: Good slam

If my faves do bad: Bad slam
