Re: Your Favourite GrandSlam?
1. Australian Open - I love watching the Aussie every year because the weather is always nice and the tournament is always so unpredictable. The mens side almost always has a surprise semi-finalist or finalist (Tsonga 2008). Also, it's the site of some of my favorite Sharapova matches (vs Williams 2005, vs Pin 2007, vs Clijsters 2007, vs Henin 2008).
2. United States Open - The only slam out of the four that kinda fits with my time schedule. I prefer hardcourt tennis over grass or clay, and this makes the USO and OZ my favorite slams. It's the site of some of my favorite tennis moments (Agassi retirement, Clijsters 2005, Sharapova 2006, Federer's five 2008).
3. Wimbledon - While I respect Wimbledon's history and tradition, I'm not particularly fond of this slam. I don't like the constant rain delays (thank god for the new centre roof), and I can't say I'm pleased with the bad memories this slam has brought me (Federer 2008, Sharapova 2008).
4. Roland Garros - I have nothing against this slam expect that it's played on clay, the worst surface of my favorite player. Moreover, it has prevented some of my favorite players in history (Sampras, Edberg, Conners) from completing a career GS. Hopefully, Sharapova can steal a championship this year, as unlikely as it might seem.
