The winner is obvious, isn't it? Not quite. 

Both Majors are special and a winner of its own. The Australian Open is known as the Happy Slam because everyone from the fans to the players and even the press always have an enjoyable time at the tournament. Players always look forward to this tournament because the players who get the titles here will have the mental advantage over the other players. Roger Federer who won this year's Grand Slam continued to win several titles including in Miami and Indian Wells after that and becoming the oldest champion in those tournaments.

Meanwhile, the French Open is well known for its red clay. This year will be extra special for the Major because nine times champion Rafael Nadal will be campaigning for his 'La Decima' (10th in Spanish) after having a good run this clay season compared to two years ago. Fans and the world will be watching this tournament very closely to witness one of the most historical events ever happened in tennis history.
