A new surface...

What should be the new surface...

- Indoor Ice...
*synthetic or real ice...players must play with a lot of tread in their shoes and you would have to move like clay but the bounce would be like hardcourts...

- Water...(i dont know if this will work)
*a hardcourt filled with 1 inch of water...players will have difficulty moving...the ball will bouce high when using topspin, but when you hit it flat it skips ( like skipping stones )

- Sand
*low bounce, slow...hard to find footing difficult to slide...

- Wood Panel...(sort of like floors)
*plays like hardcourt

- Mixed (Hardcourt, Clay, Grass, Carpet, and Rebound Ace)
*5 different surfaces all on one court...
One service box... clay
One service box... grass
Back Court...Hardcourt
Sides...rebound ace and the other carpet


Any others???

Ice would be the most fun because it would play as fast as hardcourts and the slide would be faster than clays so...
I would make my opponent run side to side until they slip or i would go for the dropshot and see them slide into the net...

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

Somebody's dreaming here

No you can’t help it if you have been tempted
By fruit hanging ripe on the tree
And I feel useless
Don’t care what the truth is
You will be here come the day

Artificial grass comes to the mind first.

I know that in South Asia ( like India ) there are courts covered with dried and crumbled cow crap. Diving at net on those courts would be something special.

Playing on ice on skates is not out of question actually. But the net will have to be raised for at least a couple of feet for it to start making any sense.
