Hmmm... Almost every European grew up on clay courts. So I was assuming Dechy did too, but surprisingly she's playing hard court tennis today... Did you guys noticed it too?

She really a hardcourt player. Her game is taylored for hardcourt.

I just saw her slide. She's just not a natural slider. She doesn't get out of a slide immediately after doing it.

I read somewhere that contrary to legend, most French players actually grow up on hard courts, although they do have more exposure to clay than most Americans.
