what's your favourite grandslam?

I love the U.S open, of course, being american. it's because hardcourt is my favourite surface and I think that the matches are much better in the US open than, maybe, the Aussie.

what's your thought

Wimbledon and Roland Garros because you don't have to get up at 6AM to watch them.

Roland Garros and Wimbledon, cos they are the ones I've been to live and have watched most on TV, also RG is where my fave players do best and Wimbledon is 15 minutes by train from my house.

I would say the Australian Open is my least favourite Grand Slam, cos although we have good TV coverage of it, it's at strange hours of the night/ morning here in the UK and I've usually been in the middle of an exam period at that time of the year, so I hardly ever get to see anything of it. The US Open I see slightly more of, but it's also a bad time of year for me to have time to watch tennis, not to mention the fact I hate the Sky Sports commentary team when I do get time to see it!

But British Eurosport usually has live and through the night coverage, as far as I remember.

Yeah, it's a shame. I remember a time when they used too have reasonable coverage of Roalnd Garros too. Oh well, at least they have fantastic interactive coverage Wimbledon still ... for the time being, anyway!

Aussie Open! Love the carnival atmosphere!!! It's just such a fun, crazy event.

Plus if I wanna see the other Grand Slams I have to be up at:

French Open: 1am
Wimbledon: 11:30pm
US Open: 4am

Why is it that the world never remembered the name of Johann Gambolputty de von Ausfern-

French Open

I think real tennis game is game on clay: there, you haven't the advantage of the serve, effects work , you have time to adjust... but I'm not really good in technique, so I'll stop here. It's more agreeable to watch tennis on clay IMO.

I love Wimbledon also

then, OZ and finally, US Open
But I like all 4 Slams.

CONCHITA-LINDSAY-MARY-HINGIS

KATA - AMG -
APS

Serena- Garcia- Hercog- KDK- Daniilidou- Puig- Muguruza...
