Which Grand Slam is the most popular? Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon or US Open? »FirstSportz
Tennis is one of the most popular sports in the world. It is played globally since the last 150 years and its popularity seems to be increasing day by day.
The regular tennis calendar begins in January and spans over 11 months with multiple tournaments held each week. But the tournaments that every player prepares for are big tournaments. Technically, there are four Major Championships held every year that when combined are called Grand Slams, but for some reason we call each championship a Grand Slam or a grand slam.
There were 4 great raids- Australian Open, French Open Championship, Wimbledon and US Open. The Australian Open is the first Grand Slam of the year and is held in Melbourne in January. It is also the newest major and was started in 1905.
NS France is open, or Roland Garros is the second major and is held in late May/early June in Paris. This is also the only match played on Clay. Then there is Wimbledon, the oldest tennis tournament in the world. It started in 1877 and was played on grass at the AELTC. Finally, the US Open is held in August and is one of the most attended sporting events in the world.
Is Wimbledon the most popular tournament?
Now how to decide which is the most popular big battle? This is a very subjective question. When it comes to monetary value, the US Open has the biggest prize pool. It also has the largest tennis stadium in the world – Arthur Ashe Stadium and is one of the most attended sporting events in the world.
|Grand Slam||2016||2017||2018||2019||Year 2021|
|France is open||$35,867,764||$40,329,180||$43,910.635||$47,791,198||$38,500,044|
But when we consider physical strength – winning the French Open on clay courts requires the best physical strength based on the nature of the surface.
But Wimbledon by far the most popular major struggle. It is the oldest tennis tournament in the world and therefore the most prestigious. It has history and tradition attached to it – like all the white, strawberry and cream dress codes, the royal box and the iconic center court. Many tennis players have acknowledged that playing on the center court is the pinnacle of tennis. Plus the atmosphere around it, the buzz of its fans, and its traditions make it even more special and popular.
