La Marseillaise.

It's so peaceful, so beautiful. Truly preaching the peace and the happiness between all nations.

Give back 2006 US Open to Justine

Die Stem is great, I agree. Nkosi is too primitive comparing to it.

My Top 5 would be:

1. Russia
2. USA
3. UK
4. Israel
5. Anthem of Russian Empire

Re: Your favorite national anthem?

I find the Russian national anthem to be the most stirring. Also love the Romanian, Spanish and Italian national anthems and I quite like the tune of the old GDR one.

Re: Your favorite national anthem?

I feel like we get this thread every month

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.
