Re: Does Clay bring the most exiting matches in Tennis?
It depends, as an American, I much prefer Roland Garros and Wimbledon to the U.S. Open, and the Aussie ranks ahead of ours too honestly, and here's why:
The U.S. Open on the women's side has sloppy matches for no apparent reason. I can see clay (slower surface, more chance of unforced errors) and grass (rare) having more errors, but REALLY. These women play on hard courts all the time, and last year's USO was a HOT MESS of errors and mistakes and bad serving.
The competitiveness of the French Open matches with longer rallies just gets me more, and Wimbledon is well...Wimbledon, so the minute anything goes to three sets there, I start to get a palm sweat going. It's a preference though, because some people will not like clay because it can lead to more unforced errors. For me, it's a great test of linking physical and mental stamina.
Next stop: Roland Garros
