What would be the surface of your own tennis court?

Of course if you already own one, what is the surface of your own tennis court?

I'd love to have a grass tennis court, but I haven't got the money to get one, so I'll have to do without

Rebound Ace.
I like grass the best, but it takes too much maintenance, so I'd get fake grass, but I want to teach my little sister the game of tennis and I don't think she'd like the fast grass courts.

Red Clay, because the tournemants in Belgium are mostly played on red clay, also it's easier for your body then other surfaces.

rebound ace sucks...... doesn't suit my game at all.... well maybe because i've only played on it once in my life.....

when i first tried indoor courts i loved it so much and i felt like lindsay davenport, hitting winners everywhere..... i think indoor's the best!

Green Clay, because I love clay and because it's a little bit faster than the red one!

I couldn't vote....I only want En-Tou-Cate (Spelling?)...plays between a clay court and a hardcourt (speedwise)...I believe it's Volcanic Rock put over a dirt/clay base....can suit a hard serve....but in rallies plays more like a clay court (sliding etc)...many of them in Australia because they absorb water very well....(we have to hose them before each set in Summer)

****** Daria Sam, Jarka, Casey, Serena , then the guys with nice asses on the ATP, followed by other Aussies, bit of a gap...then Venus.....bit of a bum scratch...then will watch Lisiki or Radwanksa...gap...everyone else (or sleep) ******

I'm just better indoors than anywhere. No sun, no wind, and everything clicks in.

If only I could play on it for my team, instead of hardcourts outdoors.

Indoors b/c you can play all year round and not be distracted by rain or cold or other weather annoyances.
