I prefer the US Open to other... :wavey:

Wimbledon is my favourite without doubt, I love going but avoid the hill like the plague, as the whole Henman hill thing is embarrassing!.

Love to go the frech. Great atmosphere on the courts. Have been to wimbledon, I have to admit that it' just not so hot like RG

Althouigh I've never been there I'm looking forward to the Us Open. Best surface and not so much withdrawles like in other slams

Wimbledon is my favourite followed by the Australian Open

Jul 5th, 2005, 12:17 PM
they all have their own thing so it's all even for me

WImbledon - its so traditional and professional

Jul 5th, 2005, 01:55 PM
US probably.

Used to be French but it's gone downhill in the last ten years.

I refuse to love Wimbledon until it provides equal prize money.

Wimbledon BLATANTLY.
and the week after always seems like someones died for me :( i love it

Wimbledon then the USO... they're so strikingly different!

I voted all of them just b/c there is no clear cut favorite for me. I like Wimbledon but can't stand all of the rain delays. I like the French b/c there are no rain delays but matches aren't as good as Wimbledon. I don't really like the timing of the US Open as it starts at the same time as school so I don't get to watch as much of it as I would like.

RG and wimby

US OPEN IS THE BEST! Night lights and that HUGE Auther Ashe Statdium...can't nobody do it like the US.

It's difficult - I like Wimbledon because its the only grand slam that I can actually go to, and the coverage is good with choices of matches on the BBC, and I do like its traditional nature but as far as the actual tournament goes, I prefer the US Open - even though I can't watch that much due to the time difference.

What I can't stand is how the so many of the BBC commentators talk about Wimbledon as if its the most important grand slam and go on and on about its greatness. It's like - there are 3 other equally important grand slams as well, but I suppose they wouldn't know about them as they only ever show the finals and possibly the semis if your lucky of the others :mad:

The US Open has the most exciting atmosphere.

Jul 5th, 2005, 06:01 PM
To this day, I get those post-Wimbledon blues everytime it finishes. The U.S. Open I get that way too but for some reason not every year. I guess it has to do with who is in the final.

USO... haha... think its the time it shows on tv over here, and the fact tt it seldom rains... ;)

Jul 5th, 2005, 06:08 PM
The US Open because of the NYC atmosphere.. like it was mentioned before, the big stadium, the night matches.. the NY people.

and the Aussie Open because it has the most tennis educated fans.
