Balls move too fast on hardcourts & too slow on clay,
so I like grass most.

Yeah, i agree with almost all of those, but I don't like fast hardcourts for men though, especially if u are watching two men with huge serves, then it can get a little boring, and too fast.

Red clay. The dirtier and slower the better.

My favorite court to watch matches on TV is the Grandstand at US Open.

lol, actually they move "slower" since it is more humid in Queen's, it's just it bounces lower. On clay the balls travel faster but just bounce higher so more time to react:)

a ball that hits a grass court will move through the court faster (and bounce lower) than it will on a hardcourt...i know that for a fact...

That's right, everyone knows the pace on grass is a lot faster, and the pace on clay is a lot slower. But i'm talking about just the ball speed, coz grass court becomes wet easily and is easy for the balls to carry H2O which makes it heavier. A wet ball on clay is 2x heavier tho. But usually dry in Roland Garros, Rome, Berlin etc. So the balll is dry.

Grass is great if your lucky enough to see a serve volleyer play a baseliner. at its best the tennis is sublime, at its worst it really is the worst.

IMHO, best court to watch tennis on is center court at SW 19.
So distinctive, all that green and purple, and the really small crowd gives ti such an intimate feel compared to the other slams.

Honorable mention to the old wimbledon court 1, which had that assymetry, the players lounge and connecting corridor, giving it really different feel and even a different sound. Loved it.
