    Hypothetical question that my friends and i bs'd about over a few beers.

    Given 1 choice, which would you rather take: Win the US Open (or whatever Grand Slam you like) or marry any woman on the planet (or guy...if that's your thing) ???


    I honestly couldn't answer....too tough, but figured i'd throw it out for you guys. :lol:

    Totally agree, although it would be Wimbledon, not the US!

    Call me Wimbledon 2004 champ!!!

    Tennis players always get the nice women anyway so the GS would get me a mighty fine women, I would prefer to win Wimbledon anyway as it is what every young tennis player dreams of. Like hitting the half volley Federer style against Roddick in the semi last year is something I long to be able to do on Centre Court.

    imo

    Wimbledon! Like Liam said, tennis players, especially winners get the women anyway. The woman I want to marry is within my reach anyway.

    I'll take a GS win and hope it impresses Amanda Coetzer or Carmen Electra enough.

    I want to be the US Open champ! I've been married for 17 years and have the greatest wife a guy could have but I played tennis before she came and I would continue to play after she left.

    US Open, definately; but not unless I was allowed to marry a new woman every year.

    US Open Champ. Women would be easy to get then. Ask Safin.

    All 4 Grand Slams or 4 personally chosen women when you wanted them? Possible partners could include Anna, Daniela, Elena, and Maria Sharapova (when she turns 18 )?! Tough choices.

    Would you rather win a men's doubles Slam or a mixed doubles Slam?

    Camilio Pascual,

    I know what you mean about Carmen Electra although she still couldn't beat a Wimbledon title, and to be honest I think a Wimbledon title is more in my reach than Carmen :D

    I could also beat Coria at RG and impress his wife, and then she would come with me. How bout that?

    But Carmen though, Dink Dank Doo!!!!!

    I suppose Wimbledon will have to do :wink:

    If you really think about it, all you want to marry the woman you are coming up with (Carmen Electra etc.) is for sex!

    Now a shag off a fit bird lasting about 3 and a half minutes or a Wimbledon Title, doesn't take that much thinking about really does it!

    This is easy, I'd marry Anna Kournikova. I look at it this way, I'd have the hot chick and we would have a mantle full of Grand Slam singles trophies that she had won over the years....oh, ummmm wait a minute. :twisted:

    As I said I would prefer the prefer the Wimbledon title.

    Every English kid who plays tennis works all their life to win Wimbledon and will most likely never get the chance to even play there let alone win!

    It's an easy question to answer,

    ANSWER: Wimbledon
