LOL, definitely the former. it's funny as hell to me how agassi, who has always been somewhat of an open democrat - and without prompting came out publicly against her son last fall - is fawned upon by bush pere and mere. what a brood

Who's the hottie sitting next to Mr. Barbara Bush?

So does anybody here think Garcia/Horna can win the Grand Slam in doubles? I sure do. I just have this crazy hunch...

btw how does the american stuff differ from the Euro Red Clay to play on? Is the red clay even slower? I kind of like playing on the Green stuff but there aren't that many clay courts around here.

I also think it's more sandy and more like a hardcourt with a layer of the clay on top. That's what I've heard.

Indeed, in Peru, 95% of tennis courts are on red clay surface. The American clay (green or kinda blue) are a lot more slippery and sandy with an awful gravel. Red clay has to be treated and watered (sprayed) every set. The speed depends on the quality of the red clay, but definetly is a little slower than synthetic clay (the one i play in Flamigo Park / Miami Beach).
The condition of the court changes during the set, because the clay gets dryer...we have to deal with it.... :D

Thanks....and hope this help.
