What Surface(s) Would You Most Like To Play On?

I played on wood today and it has got me thinking about different kind of surfaces you could play on. I know we have had threads similar to this, so this can just be an undate with anynew ideas. I would love to play on clay, and glass. What about you guys?

Clay and Grass would be different to what I'm used too. I'd love to give them a go.

Ice, so it could match the temperature of my [xXxemoxXx] heart.

I would like to play on the court in Dubai which Federer and Agassi hit on. What happens if the ball fell off the edge?? From that height the ball could kill someone

I would love that, you think it´s slippery?

I´d like to play on grass as I love the low bounce on carpet and the speed. I live 20 minutes away from the Gerry Weber Open and they have a few grass courts open for public but it costs like 55 US-Dollars/hour. Maybe someday...

I would especially love to play on grass one day

I have pretty much played on everything except clay and although i would like to give it a try it really wouldnt suit my game at all and my footing would be terrible im sure.
