I would've thought Ivanisevic winning Wimbledon would encourage them to put in some grass courts for you.

I think we only have like three clubs with claycourts though

It's because your Indoor Hard is faster than Grass

IMO, the reason why Europe (especially the East/Balkan region) is dominating tennis right now, especially women, is because the combination of Clay and Indoor Hard makes you adapt and play different styles

Look at Ana She is good on all surfaces

Donna needed to play more on Clay as a kid and to tell you the truth I think she would be further now as not only would she be better on clay but she would hit with more topspin and be a faster mover(I'd expect )

There is not one place in Australia with real clay
Literally none... even our academies

And I have played on a lot of Clay

Nettu + Lera + Sofishka + Katu + Carolsh + Miley + Lissi + Kaia + Gendra + Eva + Saara + Matti + Kenneth + Jürgen + Alex

Clay courts left and right here in Croatia (7 clay courts and 1 hard court on 2000 souls in my village), and we can't produce a real claycourter.

Re: Donna Vekic

I don't see Donna winning this. Rybarikova is too good and Donna looks so tired

Wow that was a great really though

Re: Donna Vekic

What a ridiculous point! Magda almost won that one lying down. Well done Donna to stick in it and force the error.
