Just played on grasss/lawn!!

So fast, I've never played on such a fast court, even makes my serve look pretty good! Still lost to my brother, (i'm jet lagged, just got back from HK this morning) 6-1 6-4 6-2, but so fast, hard ot return serve and be consistent on the ground.. now I understand why Seles struggles sometimes on this surface! The ball can skid through ands bounce so low!

it's amazing! I really love it. I've only played in carpet, never grass, but still it's UNBELIEVABLE. The way a hard shot can penetrate and the way your serve affects the other. I just LOVE IT.

I thought indoor hard was fast.

Grass must be even faster!

Grass is faster than Carpet.

Grass is cool. It's by far my best surface... because I'm so short. The ball bounces just right for me. I'm also quick, so I'm able to get to a lot of shots. The slick surface also helps my game. The hardcourts don't do shit for me, as nearly everyone can get to my shots. On grass, it's a different story...

i've played on grass, hard and gravel/tar courts now

grass: too fast, but if serve is on it's ok
hard: way slower, but i like the surface
tar: too slow, like clay, but one of my best surfaces.
