I've played on grass only two or three times at Longwood. I had a manager that had a membership there and he invited me to play there a few times in the 1980s.

As mentioned before, bouncing before the serve too many times wasn't recommended as you could wind up chasing the ball. Sometimes you'd bounce the ball and a bunch of flies would come out of the ground and you basically hit the ball and rushed to the net to avoid the bad bounces.

I used a continental grip back then which was fine for handling the low bounces.
