Unless you have played on synthetic grass you have no idea how effective or unplayable slices are on that surface. It is absolutely terrible. They bounce at ankle height and sometimes they'll just roll along the ground.

I can only recommend going to the net. Hit a slice approach. There's a very good reason baseliners couldn't win Wimbledon on the fast grass. Why do you think Laver and McEnroe had continental grips for their groundstrokes? Because slices on surfaces like that are just unplayable without them.

There is also a reason Santoro won the HOF championship on that lightning fast incredibly low bouncing surface so many times.
