Great racquet. I'm going to get one, and also some Davis racquets that I used to use (and break) a lot. Probably some others as well ... Borg's Donnays come to mind.

Don't worry. You'll naturally adjust and learn the best way to move on clay. For me it came pretty easily and pretty quickly. However, it wasn't red clay, but the synthetic Har-Tru. I've never played on real clay.

And of course a little rain on any surface can be a problem.
