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.
There is also a reason Santoro won the HOF championship on that lightning fast incredibly low bouncing surface so many times.
I agree totally. Its exploiting the surface and ball brand. The club's losing players and money. And they're changing to a bouncier and faster ball.
Some people were saying that fed does it a lot, I don't think fed is that dirty - its just his topspin thats pulling it down giving that illusion...
