I was watching the Tennis Channel today and they showed the finals from last years J&S Open at Warsaw, Poland. It was Kim Clijsters vs Svetlana Kuznetsova. Sometime in the early 2nd set, Kuznetsova hit this serve the landed in the middle of the service box that kicked WAY over Clijsters head and landed a few rows back into the stands behind. I've heard of wierd bounces off the clay, but that's ridiculous. Man, I've never seen a kick like that before!

LOL. I just saw it. She was serving at 1 all, 15 all in the second set. She hits a first serve that hit the net and went into the service box. On the next serve, she hits a flat serve that hit something and bounced into the stands. Sometimes you get crazy bounces like that on clay. When I first read your post I figured the serve most-likely hit the service line---hence the crazy bounce. But it actually hit the clay far inside the service line.
