Grass.

There is NO momentum on grass. Things can change on a dime.

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.

For women's tennis - grass consistently.

On the mens side clay.

I mean i could watch Challenger events on this. Just consistently nice matches.

Re: Which surface do you think produces the most exciting tennis?

clay can produce some very exciting points cuz players can get more balls back. But at the same time sometimes the tennis just gets mind numbing w/ people just playing retriever over and over again w/ points lasting forever w/ nothing exciting happening.

For women's tennis i voted grass cuz almost all the top players can play on grass and the matches have been consistently the most exciting there. but i'm a Venus fan so i guess i'm a little biased.

Re: Which surface do you think produces the most exciting tennis?

For the women it is grass without doubt. For the men it is pretty close between grass and clay but as this poll is for women's tennis I went decisively to grass.
