Serena Williams: "The Australian Open is my favorite Slam to play."

"I've never been to Brisbane but I've heard great things about it," Williams said. "I have such a great fan base in Australia - the Australian Open is my favorite Slam to play so I'm really looking forward to going to Brisbane this year.

"It will also help me with my seeding going into the Australian Open."

Sarin No wonder this is the slam you won the most often.

She says this about every slam. I remember she once said the French Open was her favorite.

Re: Serena Williams: "The Australian Open is my favorite Slam to play."

I would believe so. For whatever reason Australia seems to bring out the best in Serena, and she has had some of her most career-defining wins here. The crowd seems to enjoy her as well. But when did she say the French was her favorite slam?!?

Re: Serena Williams: "The Australian Open is my favorite Slam to play."

Well, I think she genuinely enjoys the Australian Open and regards it as her favourite (and is not a simple PR move). I think she genuinely enjoys Wimbledon as well. The U.S. Open and French Open...she has too many poor situations connected to them, by her doing or by the crowd and perception of being rooted against for a simple request.

I think it's more kudos to the Australian fans, who seem to get a lot of players jazzed to play there and start their year well. The crowd seemingly adopts players very easily as well (Aussie Kim, Ana, Federer) and are generally fair. Of course, like any crowd, they have their moments, but at the end of the day, the Australian fans make tennis enjoyable for me to watch as well (even through T.V.). Great job, and keep it up Australia!

She probably said that because she has an apartment in Paris and loves the city.

Spot on. I've always felt that the Australian fans are some of the most non-biased enjoyable fans. They cheer good tennis, regardless of who it's from. It makes the matches entertaining on TV too, because there seems to be cheers with every point, instead of there being euphoria when one player wins a point and then silence when their opponent wins a point. I always look forward to the Aussie Open for that reason. Fans make the sport what it is! Who doesn't love a rocking stadium?

yes, i guess she says it about every tournament she is playing

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood
