List the tournaments in the order of prestige starting from greatest to lowest.

I just entered the most likely answers, but if you dissagree with them pick other and post you answer.   :uh:

I too said Wimbledon, US, FO, AO

In truth though I would have liked to say Wimbledon, USO/FO/AO or maybe even Wimbledon, FO, USO/AO

Interesting that most people are throwing the AO at the end of the list.  For me the FO is the least exciting.  Although if Fed can win this years FO it will be a darn exciting tournament for me.  :)

I love the AO, I think thats my second favourite grandslam, next to USO. And I really don't think its fair to compare AO and FO and such because its two completely different things and I think its unfair that there's this unsaid presitge issue and we are forced to priortize. And I suspect AO only comes last because its least original, Wimbledon USO and FO should be highest in that they are varied surfaces and require differnt skills each, AO is a combo of like USO slowed down to mimic FO speed sorta you know what I mean?

Well, the question wasn't favorite grand slam, it was most prestigous grand slam.
I think it goes without saying that the Australian has the least amount of prestige.
