Re: How many types of surfaces have you actually played on?

I've played on red clay, normal hardcourts , the rubber surface and synthetic grass or whatever. Low bouncing quick synthetic grass is like ideal for my game. My shots always land in.

Re: How many types of surfaces have you actually played on?

synthetic grass ( what a crappy surface the ball doesn't even bounce!! ), and the hard court similar to AO and one like in Miami both outdoor, and once I've played indoor when I was in USA I'm really looking forward to play on clay my game suits more in slower court in Thailand there are only two courts each for red clay and grass I've never been there and hopefully when i return to Us I could get to play some green clays

just once in an outdoor carpet (which is shit, it was slower as clay), asphalt (that wasn´t even a court just a "place") and outdoor red clay which is my most hated surface ever

Hard court, outdoor and indoor red clay and synthetic grass!
I think my game would be best on the (synthetic) grass but I just have played few times on that surface! But almost every time I play tennis I'm playing it on red clay so it is my best surface!

Hard courts and red clay courts. The red clay courts are the best!

Hard court, asphalt, red clay, and indoor carpet. I love hardcourts besides I'm Spansish

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Very fast! Acctually, the fastest surface I have ever played on! The bounce of the ball is very low and fast. Reactions really should be fast to play good tennis on that surface! It is great surface for agressive players!

Hard (indoor and outdoor), indoor carpet, outdoor synthetic grass, and green clay

"Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But he loves you."

George Carlin
