Which Grand Slam is your least favourite?
« on: December 10, 2008, 11:03:12 PM »
Due to popular demand (Sid and others) in my poll, which Grand Slam is your favourite and why?, I have made this poll regards your least favourite. I picked the French Open. I think the French Open will win (or lose I guess :confused1:) this poll. I still like the way Nadal has utterly dominated Roland Garros over the past 4 years, but the clay is a bit too slow, and there is barely any coverage of it, either that or it is really low quality video. For heavens sake, I think a challenger would get more attention! :rofl_2: :lol-sign: Wimbledon pretty much ties with RG for me. Over to you guys!!!

I would have to go with the French Open as my least favorite surface.. My favorite has to be Wimbledon.. I just can't stand clay to be sooo slow.. Although for a slow surface Nadal  has utterly dominated that surface and that is not even an easy feat, so kudos to him... but, still, clay is just slow and boring..

USO
it's the season's ultimate tourney and after 8 months following tennis, I am less interested.
it's played in the surface I dislike the most.
night matches, 4:00 am in Europe.

Self-praise is for losers. Be a winner. Stand for something. Always have class, and be humble.

I can't pick really.
The AO sets the tone for the year.
The french is always interesting because of the different style of play.
Who doesn't love wimby.
The USO is always great and has good times for my viewing area.

You want an answer to that?

For me, it's a tie between Wimbledon and the FO.... but for different reasons..

the FO I don't like b/c it's a specialty court. And so not as many of your secondary favorites (the ones outside the top 10) make it far at all and it gets lame really quick...

for wimbledon it's the converage. I don't understand why they can't just get some damn lights. Hopefully with a roof over center court, we'll get that all worked out.

But i love the AO and USO... they're so energetic.

I wouldn't say too early... just misplaced... Maybe if they extended the time between Wimbeldon and Roland Garros, things would be better.

Its not only that...Australia is just too hot in jan , it being in the southern hemisphere....its too harsh on the players...changing surfaces very frequently doesn't go down well with me either.

Oh yeah, that is an issue... I mean, I'm thinking that if they had the Miami tournament in the summer, that would kill players literally; not that spring isn't crazy hot too. But they used to have the Australian Open at the end of the year after the USO, but a lot of players would just skip it. Now i kind of look at it as being a "warm up slam"--just to know who the new hot ish is for the season.
