I'm assuming you don't know how to slide, then hit, on clay. If true, then in singles play center the ball, especially if your opponent is a good mover and experienced clay court player. Avoid getting into sharply angled rallies, a clay court player will be happy for both of you to be running wide off the court, his footwork will beat you. You'll be running 2 or 3 feet wider than him almost every time, leaving more court open and exhausting yourself sooner from all the running. Good luck.
