The French Open without a doubt,you spend a lot more time on court on the dirt. Each point takes more energy from you than on any other surface.

thats a double edged sword,

its more physically demanding during the matches, but far less than any other afterwards. AO is probably the worst after you walk off the court.

French Open..if you don't know how to slide (use correct footwork on clay), then your toast physically and mentally.

I would say the AO, the excruciating heat while playing is tuff.

P.S should have done a poll...

It's a toss up between the AO and the French depending on what affects you most as a player.

I personally think the French but I can see how those badly affected by heat would find the AO tougher.

French is the most physically demanding and boring GS. I always fell asleep while watching any clay match.

Even though I don't like clay, FO is definitely the most demanding physically.

FO toughest.
Is there some reason the AO isn't moved 8 weeks later besides the Aussies will drink more Fosters at 100o? I say they will still drink plenty in March. Cheers, mates!

Aussie or French. Can't decide so I'll say both.


Could you imagine a combination of the two? :twisted:


Aussie Open heat combined with french red clay.....i don't know how ANYBODY would survive that.

Wimbledon if it rains for a week and than everyone not named Federer have to play 4 best of 5 matches in 4 days. Like it happened in 2007.

I'd go with AO for sure. The on-court temperatures were over 60 degrees celsius? It's also very physically demanding on your lower body. Clay would take some cardio and stamina, but the AO's heat is hard to compete with.

only pushers win RG

real tennis heros get to the final (or semis) just to show they can win, and then decide to walk away

keeping their integrity

It's not the organizers' fault that Nadal didn't know how to finish off lesser players in three like his idol Federer could.

id say the USO because by the time you get in to the second week you have been playing on hard courts for about 3 months
