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!
