Theyve installed 2 "european clay" courts at Sydney to allow prep. for the davis cup and are contemplating installing two more clay courts to make a total of 4.

If there will be 4 courts i hope to get the chance to hire them one day ?! :)

we only have fake clay (crushed brick) in Australia cos australia doesnt have much limestone here which is needed to make the top layer.

I just wanna have played on every surface. So far ive played on synthetic and natural grass, hard, indoor, and 'fake' clay. ;)
