    Can't really pick between RG and WB,though I like all of them. I'm gonna go with RG since I grew up playing on clay.

    wow im first to say the australian open, for me the australian open rules all i prefer the atmoshpere of it all, its the first grand slam, you cant help but speculate how everyone is going to do i like the quality of the matches, wimbledon is great its my 2nd favorite, french open seems a bit kind of boring i dont know seems more like the most quiet grand slam, then us open is also good like how the who arena is like a roman arena as the commentators voice echoes around the biggest tennis arena in the world, its also the fastest and

    from least to greatest in terms of me liking it

    australian open, wimbledon, us open, french open

    tempted to put us open ahead of wimbledon

    Although technically it should be one of Wimbledon or Roland Garros, mine is Australian Open, by far.

    I enjoy all 4 (like any proper tennis fan) but Wimbledon in my opinion is the only GS that transcends tennis and is a landmark occasion across all sports.

    I don't even need to hesitate for a second to vote for Wimby.

    I enjoy all four but I'd give the edge to Roland Garros just because I have the best memories of that tournament.

    question now that i find the chance, why is it that in wimbledon the ball strike sounds more hollow or more echoing if you get me.

    I put Wimbledon because I like the surface, it's unique, but I also like the USOpen because of the weather. Just gorgeous that time of year

    Not sure but it might be coz the players tend to use a lower string tension on grass, and coz of that it makes a louder noise.

    This is coming from the clown who started thread titled "Which WTA girl is best in bed". What a joke.

    It's pointless to vote when the real slam isn't even in the poll.

    Definitely Australian Open:

    1. Polite and knowledgable tennis fans.
    2. Best color scheme.
    3. Best atmosphere.
    4. Night matches.

    My second favorite GS are the US Open, followed by RG (because I grew up on clay). My least favorite is Wimbledon.

    I love them all, but went for Aussie Open, I think second choice would be Wimbledon (I'm from UK :D) but I'm just drawn to the AO, as mirko112 said:

    I like the atmosphere, the heat in day matches, the awesome night matches, the courts, the crowd, the energy, everything. Also it's the first calendar slam, it's great to see what form players are in when they come back (and it means the kick-start of the new season!). Also, Tsonga plays well there :D Who can forget him prowling the two-tone blue surface at the Rod Laver arena like a panther dressed all in black, dominating Nadal as though he were nothing? One of the greatest moments ever for us Tsonga fans!

    And the AO 2009 was great too, that semifinal with Nadal and Verdasco, and of course the final. Great memories!

    Wimbledon. Especially now that it has a roof on the main court.

    The French! So gritty and emotional. Not all about ball bashing and all about keeping mentally ahead of your opponent. Five sets on clay is a long way to go. and then the Aussie. Cuz there is almost always a breakout kid

    I love sliding on the dirt...all of the champions at Roland Garros are my favourite to watch...as a kid seeing Agassi lose many time and seeing Courier play in those finals it was awesome. French open is a slam with deserving clay court champions...The surface is awesome...the bounce is high...long rallies...loads of endurance needed in the matches... the real test of tennis player athletism.

    Rosewall won 10 titles...Borg won 6 titles there..Nadal won 4 titles there...Fed reached 5 consecutive Finals there...Obviously fitness of a high degree is needed to win or real high attacking S and V like McEnroe, Edberg, Pannata at least won it once or got to the finals.

    So in terms of fitness, and my love for the clay, and the name Roland Garros has a nice ring to it, and....so that is why it is my favourite slam.

    1.) Roland Garros
    2.) Wimbledon
    3.) Australian Open
    4.)US open
    5.) Cincy Open
