    That.. and the fact that too dry a clay court gets very slippery and very fast. That won't happen after one set though.

    Yeah, water it more so that it becomes mud. Then the ball won't kick up at all. And Federer will beat Nadal in the French Open final.

    EXCELLENT!:twisted:

    Yeah, good times!

    Djokovic was not too happy when he almost snapped an ankle early in his 2nd set today after a heavy watering between sets - the announcer even said the groundskeeper might have overdone it.

    hm...
    i guess they water it so that it becomes softer
    and it needs to be softer so that people who find clay tennis boring can sleep

    They water them in order to prevent everyone getting broken ankles.

    It won't matter. Federer will still probably hit forehand after forehand into the net. :???:
