Can we agree that RG is the worst slam by far?

Terrible matches, terrible finals for the last 7 years.. and seriously crappy play from the women's side.

RG for the women has been by far the worst of the four slams. Agree?

(Henin fans, plz try to be objective )

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

Easily the worst slam of the 4.

Re: Can we agree that RG is the worst slam by far?

I personally think that it`s the worst slam by far, mainly because of the unappealing matches on that terrible clay court. I`m sorry but i just don`t like clay court tennis.

Re: Can we agree that RG is the worst slam by far?

the answer is no, we can't agree. people will always have points going for or against whether the FO is the worst Grand Slam. Personally, I like RG better than AO, but that's just my personal preference and I don't expect anyone to share it or agree with it.

It's always been my fav slam. Some classic finals in the past, but I do agree the last few years have been

just because no one can challenge Tin Tin doesn't mean this GS sucks.

Wimbledon and RG are the greatest slams.

Re: Can we agree that RG is the worst slam by far?

We got a Justine-Serena match at a major. We haven't had that in a long time.
If Justine wins tomorrow, they'll have 14 combined.
When they play in a major, it's a big deal.
This tournament also establishes Justine as an all-time great, if she wins her 3rd straight FO tomorrow.
So it could be viewed as an important slam historically.
If Ana wins the final, it could be her breakthru towards being a special player.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Not really.
Most people realize that for the women, the French Open is horrendous.

Re: Can we agree that RG is the worst slam by far?

I don't think it's any better or worse than the other three. All four slams are different, all of them are great.
