Given the choice I'd like to attend them all.

But if we have to opt for 1 each I would pick Wimbledon of course and probably Rome because, well...........it's Rome.

AO as it is the only Major I have never been to, but actually the next one will be again RG and then Wimby next year.

I would have loved to visit Miami in its older destination, which is sadly not a possibility anymore.

:cool:
Nice. Whats been your favourite of those visited?

Ive done Rome, Roland Garros, Monte Carlo, Madrid, and Paris Masters, and attending Wimbledon this year for the first time.

Ideally id love a visit to Indian Wells or Cinci for Masters, and the AO edges the USO for me.

One day I hope.

I don't have a particular strong favourite, but I am partial to Wimbledon, because I love grass tennis and the quirks of it all, and then RG, as I love and play almost exclusively on clay these days and most of the time I live only several hours away from Paris, so I have an established relationship with that Major.

From the M1000s I have been to MC and Rome are the best.

USO, because I love NYC and there are so many other things to see and do. Although I don't like the time of year - usually so miserably hot.

For me any time when it is not hot. I hate hot weather. But I like NYC. Apparently you do not.
Humidity is also a major factor, regardless of whether it is hot or cold, but my question was more one of curiosity. When it rains it is also downright disgusting. Which is your favourite time of the year there?

:cool:

AO and IW.

This has nothing to do with which are most prestigious etc. Just what I think I'd enjoy.
These two top my list two. Most likely I will go to RG, Halle, Wimbledon instead (just easier as they are in Europe).

I was in Rome last week, Monte Carlo last year and Queen’s (& Eastbourne) in 2017.

Which one it will be ?


Wimbledon for me.
Was supposed to go to London this year, still can around the same time as WB but may not attend. But there's always next year.
I've been to Wimbledon 3 times, french open twice and US Open once.

They are all unique. There's no pick and choose. Go to all of them.

Wimbledon : Amazing classic feel. Even better when you start queuing up at 4 in the morning to get in by 2 pm. It does not feel like queuing. I've done it both ways - queuing and public ballot.

French open - a compact venue. Sun shining on red clay - I can't describe it. Amazing!

US Open - a big venue. Easier to get autographs. Lots of space.

I'm yet to visit Australia. Too far!

Is clay your favourite surface to play on ?

In singles it is, because I have more time to set up for my shots, and it is not as hard on the body. For doubles I vastly prefer grass and HC as there is not so much pounding on the body and I get to play with less exertion and higher precision.

Are you from the UK? For some reason I had you as a subject of the Queen.

The clay season is a little boring to me, New York too chaotic, Australia too hot.
I agree with you on those! Going to Australia would be fun, except that I don't think I can stand the heat. I really don't have much interest in attending a clay event (not that I'd turn it down, if someone else was footing the bill.) I have been to Wimbledon, but not during the tournament, and it just has that amazing aura of magnificence. I would love to attend.

But, the US Open is the one that is the most feasible for me, as I have family in the area. I don't know whether early rounds might be less chaotic, but that's really my favorite part anyway, so hopefully, in the not-too-distant future, I may try that. But, if I had the means to go to any one of them, I would pick Wimbledon.

As far as Master's 1000, I have been to Indian Wells (when it was a Super 9) and I just can't imagine a better venue. I would choose that one again.

I've attended semis and finals at all four majors, at the tour finals, and at a bunch of masters 1000

Anyone who doesn't say Wimbledon was the most special by far is either delusional or selling you something.

To answer the OP's question, if I could choose between unlimited lifetime Wimbledon tickets, or unlimited lifetime tickets for all other tennis tournaments, I'd go for Wimbledon.

Yes, UK resident. Where are you based? I know you mentioned being close to Paris.

Australian Open - Wimbledon's literally at my doorstep, been several times. AO has outstanding facilities and is genuinely worth the trek - haven't been there quite as often

Monte Carlo - obvious reasons

Really any time it is not hot, but I have not been to NYC for a very long time due to lack of money and lack of opportunity to travel. Plus since 9-11 I hate to fly.
