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.

i just couldn't believe how much faster it is

i was playing on Hardcourts in Hong Kong, they are way way slower!

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.
