First would have to be the USO, would love to experience a night match on the Arthur Ashe, then it would be the AO, just because the atmosphere seems to be amazing.  Do not fancy at all RG, even though financially it is probably the most affordable.  Although Wimbledon looks immense, I can't stand the whole elitist aura.  Will need to save some dosh to get to the USO but if I ever won the lottery then that is what I would do. 

John - you should try your hand at sports journalism, your posts are funny, insightful etc and the passion you have for the game are evident, the. You could achieve your dream of following the ATP, anything is possible!!

Oh choices! Probably the US or Australia. I'd say Wimbledon semis or final day but then more chance of me managing that. Smile
Actually US - and since it's not limited I'd say at least a whole day, day and evening matches lol

Definately the USO, they are so into their tennis should imagine it would be a great atmosphere.  Would like to do the AO but only when we can teleport there, long flight not my cup of tea.

Been to RG and Wimbledon so I'd say USOpen. But a friend has been to AO and she says it's brilliant. Completely anti-elitist and you can just walk in.
But as I consider USOpen is Andy's best chance, I'll settle for that  yay

Australian Open.

Stadia and facilities are first class. I've heard that Flushing Meadows is a bit run down and needs some refurbishment. The AO has two show courts with a roof, in fact, it might even be three courts!

The fans are awesome, the night session crowds are the most vibrant in tennis outside Davis Cup. I also like the laid-back but passionate attitude that the Aussies have towards sport.

And the weather, whilst it may be too hot for a Scotsman like me, is phenomenal!

yes  Day pass was about $29 AD this year and only couldn't access Hisense and Rod Laver but you can still walk around the drinks/food areas of both, just can't get into the arenas.  Hisense ususally has the list up of who's on what practise court and what time - that's how I managed to grab Andy's autograph the last time I was there Very Happy

I went to the French Open 5 years in a row before finally getting centre court tickets for Wimbledon last year.  I wasn't so lucky this year. Not sure I'd go back to the French Open. Pretty disgusted by how they treated the fans last time I was there.

I'd love to go back to Wimbledon again but an Andy Murray night match at the US Open would be amazing.

I know I'm paranoid. But am I paranoid enough?

The place to go used to be the old Italian Open (now Rome Masters). The atmosphere when the Italians were playing on the outside courts was electric. The crowd used to go mental, chant, throw coins at their opponents, all sorts of stuff.

I think I'd like to go to Roland Garros, though. Because I'd be in France, Paris is about the only big city I actually like, and I always feel at home when I'm in Europe. I am EuroMan. Quite like Halle too.
