View Full Version : Your Favorite Part of the Season!?

Nov 30th, 2005, 01:41 AM
I was thinking, the season could definitely be divided into sections, and I was wondering which is your favorite?

Mine would be the Australian hardcourts, followed by the American Claycourts

Nov 30th, 2005, 01:44 AM
Well as a Hingis fan, I'm obligated to say Australian hardcourts :p. Besides that part, I absolutely love the summer hardcourt season culminating with the US Open. No tennis time like it for me.

I like the Australian summer season becase most of the player's are healthy at that point in the year.

the grass season is too short for me to pick it as the best segment of the season.
they should probably add another tournament or two in the US so it wouldn't be a "european" leg of the tour. and maria would win a title or two more =P

The Aussie Hardcourt season, followed by the European Indoor season.

The Australian summer

Nov 30th, 2005, 04:26 AM
None of the above: I like the part between Australia/Pacific and the American Hardcourts. (Pattaya, Hyderabad, Bogota, Doha, Acapulco, Dubai)

Australian summer - its the only time i really watch tennis usually, though now that i'm working full time i don't see much of it.

But its the only time i can attend matches, and with the Australian time zone, tournaments in Europe and the US are on in the middle of the night so i usually only watch the slam finals (except for when Martina was playing, then i'd try and watch all of hers)

Nov 30th, 2005, 05:15 AM
The offseason.

My fave NEVER loses during that time of year.

Nov 30th, 2005, 06:16 AM
European clay court
Fed Cup

Nov 30th, 2005, 07:05 AM
Grasscourts :)

Nov 30th, 2005, 07:07 AM
Just the grand slams.
Everyone competes.

Nov 30th, 2005, 07:07 AM
transition hardcourts for me.. and also for someone else..

Nov 30th, 2005, 07:42 AM
Australian season 'til clay season.
I LOVE CLAY SEASON ! :worship:
The second half of the season is boring :o
However indoor season is cool :cool:

Nov 30th, 2005, 03:02 PM
Wimbledon to the end of the USO is the best few weeks ever :hearts:

Nov 30th, 2005, 03:04 PM
Dubai rocked:p its cause i went to every single match:p

Nov 30th, 2005, 03:06 PM
at the start til RG :inlove:

Nov 30th, 2005, 03:08 PM
European hard indoor season with Luxembourg :worship: and Filderstadt :hearts:

I really like the beginning of the season too with everybody starting fresh and with new hopes! :angel: Don't really care about the American summer tournaments in front of US Open because then I'm usually on holidays. ;)

Nov 30th, 2005, 03:16 PM
:lol @ offseason :p

For poll purposes I chose AO, because the year is fresh and everyone is out and about :D But I really like the winter time around the Tour championships. It's just a magical time, and it's a culmination of the supposedly the best players of the year :hearts: Maybe because winter is my favorite season too :shrug::drool:

Nov 30th, 2005, 03:17 PM
The transition hardcourts (Antwerp, Indian Wells, Miami, Doha, Dubai)

That's my favorite part of the season. First, because I really enjoy Antwerp! :yeah:

Indian Wells & Miami are always giving us good or at least entertaining tennis.

And Doha & Dubai just have an edge to them! Love those tourni's

Nov 30th, 2005, 03:32 PM
The off-season!

Nov 30th, 2005, 03:34 PM
European clay season of course...but love the atmo at the first Grand Slam especially when I am sitting here surrounded by snow outside and then just press a button in an ungodly hour and I see all those players and crowd sitting under the sun. It´s nice.

Nov 30th, 2005, 03:38 PM
The Post-USOpen Asian tournaments! :dance:

Nov 30th, 2005, 04:33 PM
Definitely European clay! Great tennis played in the great cities of Berlin, Warsaw, Rome, Paris! How can it get any better than that. :worship:

Nov 30th, 2005, 04:35 PM
grasscourts :) probably & Europen claycourts

Nov 30th, 2005, 04:39 PM
Definitely the US Open Series and US Open. If we can have just one year where all the top players are healthy - those would be the best tournaments ever! :hearts:

Nov 30th, 2005, 05:15 PM
Grass :drool:

US Open Series bores me :yawn:

Nov 30th, 2005, 05:18 PM
Just before Wimbledon, but directly after the US open and the last 20 mins of YEC.

Nov 30th, 2005, 05:20 PM
European Claycourt season by far!!! And French Open as a HIGH point!!! :hearts:

Nov 30th, 2005, 05:23 PM
European hard indoor season

Nov 30th, 2005, 06:19 PM
the Europeean clay court season because of the surface and especially for Roland Garros.http://www.yelims.com/IPB/Invision-Board-France-191.gif

Nov 30th, 2005, 06:45 PM
I can't wait on the Aussie season and the European Claycourt season! :)

Nov 30th, 2005, 10:59 PM
everything from Hopman cup to the US Open is great, after that it just sucks. boring and dull.

you echo my exact thoughts, post USO lacks gusto for me.

American Summer Hardcourts

Dec 22nd, 2005, 07:57 PM
I just love Wimbledon because of its history -- what an amazing tournament.

That's the time when I'm glad and proud to be a tennis fan. It never ceases to satisfy me. :)

Dec 22nd, 2005, 08:16 PM
The Australian Season - because i get to go!
I also love the Grass Court season - very hard to beat the magic of Wimbledon.

Dec 22nd, 2005, 08:17 PM

WOW - Rogers Cup, Bank of the West, Acura Classic, US Open

Not to mention that that's what I'll be doing when I'm not watching, I'll be pounding the hard court myself!!!!!!!
