Random Question of the Day
 
Would you rather take 1 Wimbledon title or 1 Australian Open AND 1 WTF?

FedererDropShot 10-10-2012 01:32 AM

1 Aussie Open and 1 WTF.

Though, I'd take Wimbledon + 1 Masters over 1 Aussie Open + 1 WTF.

Well a Wimbledon = 2000 pts
AO + WTF = 3500 pts

It cannot be any more obvious. I know W is the most prestigious major, but it is only marginally more than the other 3.

I'd take Wimbledon, I'd want to win in front of a home crowd (assuming the WTF does move on after next year).

AO and WTF, because Wimbledon is so overrated, it's painful.

Slam + TMC > Slam.

Rhino 10-10-2012 02:32 AM

Aus + WTF.

WTF also implies that your whole year was pretty good, not just a fluke slam.

Zarfot Z 10-10-2012 02:37 AM

Wimbledon = 1.5 GS
AO = 1 GS
WTF = 0.5 GS

So Wimby = AO + WTF

I'd take either.

So?

Wimbledon is still considered the most prestigious slam by far, oftentimes referred to as the Holy Grail of tennis.

Tennis is Wimbledon. Wimbledon is Tennis. This is from non-tennis watchers. That all they can associate with tennis as a sport.


Wimbledon.....
Australia to far away to travel.....

ledwix 10-10-2012 03:31 AM

If Wimbledon is worth 1.5 slams, then Federer has 20.5 slams and Nadal 12. That doesn't make sense. I go with AO and WTF.

tennis_pro 10-10-2012 03:38 AM

I'd take Wimbledon. But only just as in my eyes Wimbly is losing its prestige. If you asked me the same question 20 years ago I'd take Wimbledon without a blink.

vive le beau jeu ! 10-10-2012 05:10 AM

1 AO, 1 WTF and baked potatoes for me, please.

It not about prestige. It about how you want to win.
Grinding tennis(Aussie) or Aggresive Baselining/Netplay(Wimbledon).

Even the grinders Novak and Nadal were aggresive on the grass considerably compared to Hardcourts/Clay.

Forget WTF....that a bonus for playing so ugly at the Aussie.

While the hype annoys me it is true, not sure I even understand why someone would post this poll.

Gonzo_style 10-10-2012 07:56 AM

AO+WTFs! More points, more money......

Most prestigious? Yes. But does it count as 1.5 slams? No, that would be overrating it.

Warmaster 10-10-2012 08:35 AM

Wimbledon! Most iconic tournament.


Grass season is my favourite part of every tennis season, shame it's so short, though it does make it extra special.
