Which is your favourite Grand Slam?

I am sure there have been threads like this before, but I haven't seen any for a while


So take a vote and discuss

I love the Australian Open, not just because it's an Aussie event, but because of the crowd, the atmosphere, the great tennis, the venue and the time of year...

Wimbledon would probably be my second favourite as it is the most prestigous, followed by the US Open. The French is probably my least favourite, but don't get me wrong, I love watching claycourt tennis, it is an art

It is great how the four grand slams are so unique and very different from one another...

Re: Which is your favourite Grand Slam?

I know just Roland Garros but it's a beautiful tournament !! This year, I go at New York for the US Open and I'm very impatient to discover this tournament.

Re: Which is your favourite Grand Slam?

I voted for the AO!!

I don't know why but I love it so much! I always stay awake the whole 'till I can already go to school, just to not miss one single match!!!

The second one would be the US Open because it's the biggest show of the year that no one wants to miss!

Re: Which is your favourite Grand Slam?

Wimbledon>>>>>>USO>AO>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>RG

the quality of matches is always great at Wimbledon, and the atmoshphere is always so relaxed and tennis-like...

this years French Open was a snooze-fest, much like last years, and the year before that, and so on...French Open is always really dull for me...must be the clay

I like Wimby bc I like the weather the atmoshphere...and the crowd

Sometimes rain delay is a problem but it is an identity of wimby can't complain on that..

And I like the fast game of tennis that's why I Like Wim the most and go to the open in the second


about RG I hate the boo from the crowd...that's all

Re: Which is your favourite Grand Slam?

My favorite is now the US Open, it is a true entertainment event with crazy night matches, great tennis, great atmosphere. A lot of fun!

Next is the Australian Open because I'm always excited to see how the players are doing in the new year. There's hardly any rain and I love the courts.

Third is Wimbledon, players are usually at their best here, but I am not a fan of grass. I also think it's really boring when everyone is wearing white. The weather usually sucks as well.

The Slam that used to be my favorite, Roland Garros, is last. The quality of matches has been appalling since the 90s and it seems like no one can play on clay anymore. Today's top players are all ball bashers and rather than construct a point they always try to hit hard on the lines, which means most rallies end in an unforced error. With Henin's retirement this Slam has exhaled its last breath. Definitely my least favorite now.

Re: Which is your favourite Grand Slam?

1 Wimbledon
2 USO
3 RG
4 AO


I love Wimbledon Maybe it is old-fashioned and conservative but this is probably the only tournament nowadays with this kind of traditions which come from pretty long ago

Whatever you do now,
the world still turns.

Re: Which is your favourite Grand Slam?

Clay makes you play.
Trouble is, the rallies of the really good players go on and on so it's exhausting just watching them!
I think Roland Garros is a bit too close to the main road around the Bois De Boulogne really. I could hear traffic horns and in qualifications I could hear the bin men as well.

Re: Which is your favourite Grand Slam?

Wimbledon miles in front, I expected it to win this, but so far ahead

I strongly disagree with talk of moving one of the four grand slams to Asia. Asia has produced some competitive players in recent times, but does not come close to rivalling the four GS nations in tennis history or administrative might...
