How does rain effect clay courts?

I read from BBC that there's bit of rain here and there in RG at the moment. Just interested to know what will happen if the clay is... wet.

But still playable, isn't it? Unlike other courts.

Ball will be heavier and court will be slower also lower bouncing.

Re: How does rain effect clay courts?

The clay gets slower, it becomes harder to hit winners.
The bounce is lower.
It becomes easier to hit dropshots.
Sliding becomes a lot harder.

There was an interesting discussion going on on what wet clay would do with a Federer-Nadal matchup. The lower bounces would neutralise part of Nadal's game, but the slower ball would favour him.

Yeah I agree. Definitely makes it slower. I actually think it disadvantages him because the killer advantage he has on clay is the topspin he can generate on the forehand which won't be there if this wetness continues.

Re: How does rain effect clay courts?

It Favour Counter Punchers or pushers if they movement is not good
Or even slow mover like Wozniak who can get dropshot bit easier.But in this case the ball probaly bounce lower at the condition,So using dropshots well work better.
