Once, and I didn't win a game!!! It was awful, the bounce was terrible and the ball never came to where I thought it would. I ended up stretching for easy shots!!! The rematch had to be played on a hard court

Nope. Maybe in the next few years, though.

I have. It's fun!
It's one of the reasons I like Wimbledon so much.

I've played on synthetic grass in Mexico, but that's it. I've never played on realy grass. It's too hard to find a grass court to play on here in the U.S.

I haven't been able to serve properly since I was 15 (im 20 now) For some reason I can't help double faulting. I'm not really a good player anyways, but it's very annoying. I was kinda impressed that I only lost my serve once in the first set

Once, and it was terrible. You cannot play on grass unless you're a strong player or at least don't play someone bigger or stronger than you. The points are too fast. I thought it would be slower than a HC but I was sooo wrong. Owned end of story LOL.
