Inspired by the French Open or Roland Garros thread. What do you prefer, Wimbledon or The Championships. Personally I prefer Wimbledon, The Championships is just a bit too cocky and arrogant.

Just realised both are in the logo so it's not necesarilly either of them, oh well.

Can’t believe we humans colonised an entire area full of peaceful Wombles just for our selfish desire to watch tennis.

I think I finally understand why @Lew hates Wimbledon.

I like things organized and neat.

Wimbledon and SWwhatever is nice an all when isolated from the other three but it’s goddamned annoying for my excel worksheets and symmetry.

Australian Open
French Open
English Open
American Open

Or,

Australia Open
France Open
UK Open
US Open

'Wimbledon' works perfectly well for my excel spreadsheets (and I like things organised and neat too). :cool:

SW19 is a postcode so I've never heard anyone refer to the tennis site as SW19. Casual fans I've heard just say 'wimbeldon tennis'. I personally say championships
In London SW19 is a very popular sort of address to have. When I was looking for a place to live there, prizes were up in SW19 contrary to SW20(not that far from The Championship.
Every time I had to tell my address I kind of felt proud having an SW19 address. Rather silly, but thats how it is. Posh SW19 lol.

Yeah Wimbledon is a expensive area overall and is pretty posh, particularly the village area. Not as much as Chelsea or central
But it's definitely towards the higher end. I'm lucky to live here. The obsession with area code has a lot to do with Class still being an important aspect of life in the Uk.

Yeah, some years ago I had the chance to move to UK and London. It was SW19 or nothing for me. I lived close to the village. Was my playground for 4 years. Most fun years of my life. Absolutely loved it! So many nice locals I felt at home.

The Pete open? I still have this mental connection that Wimbledon=Sampras.
Haha you remind me of my mom! She’s not a huge tennis fan but she loved Pistol Pete for some reason..

She still thinks Sampras is better than Federer...:confused:

I'm not saying that I love him or that he is better, just that my association is still there. When I think Wimbledon, I see Pete.
He was a bit before my time so the association isn’t really there for me.

When I think of Wimbledon, I see Federer and Nadal playing the greatest match of all time.

It's there's a sense of great community around here. Most people keep up with one another. What lead to you moving away?
