I say the Aussie, only because it's not televised on American network TV, as it does not coincide with an American holiday.

It needs to be pushed to the weekend of President's Day. Now we're talking!

Australian due to lack of coverage due to ESPN and their "need to show Agassi" attitude.

Americans play at Wimbledon?!? No, I'm sure only 2 people play at Wimbledon and they are Timmy and Greg, I've never seen anyone else playing there

MOST BORING!

Not 'boringest' Just seeing that distresses me.

Anyway, they all have their own special charms, unless it's Dent v Ivanisevic at Wimbledon or Martinez v Coetzer anywhere.

Probably the Aussie or RG in terms of televised play, as I get to choose matches with the other 2, but in terms of the average match interesting me, I have to say the USO.
