I do not know. The Australian Open is the least known of the Grand Slams and the Australian GP is just one of 20 annual F1 races. It in not like Albert Park can rival Monaco, Monza, Suzuka or Spa-Francorchamps in terms of history or circuit design.

Well, if Chinese cities are not cool, with a people that are that intelligent and a culture that is that rich and ancient, then I guess there isn't much hope for the world, is there?

Personally, I think Paris was coolest in the 1970s.
New York in the 1980s.
London in the 1990s.
2000s-2010s? ...
Since the turn of the millennium, finding a candidate for this has been tough. I personally think the generation Xers did cool so much better than millennials today. And it's not just about dress and style but about demeanor and poise, some intangible "it" factor that today's culture just doesn't get.
What passes for en vogue among millennials is either the hipster style, which is as embarrassing as those flared white polyester trousers from the 1970s that everyone would rather forget about, or the ghetto style, which many people find annoying.

That pretty much depends entirely on who you're speaking to and also where they live. The French and US opens are a lot less well known outside their home continents.

And how many city have both a grand slam tournament and F1 Grand Prix, however well or not so well known they are in different parts of the globe? History? That's just what a lot of now dead or old people did...

Bradford, no question of doubt, just take a stroll through the city and find out what proper 'cool' really is. If anybody can explain what it is that makes London, Berlin or Shanghai 'more cool' than Bradford then I would like to know what it is. If James Bond was a city he would be Bradford.

New York City was a crap hole in the 1980s. If you walked down Times Square, all you would see were drug addicts, prostitutes and sex shops.

It is a much better and classier city today, imo.

Los Angeles looks very cool in Hollywood movies but very ghetto and beaten up in reality.
