    Advocating for clay: not only due to less injuries but also it brings a heightened fluidity to tennis, and unites the game’s art with its physicality

    My preference is a good newly surfaced hardcourt/ Deco Turf cushioned ie US Open.. I used to play in a Red Clay club.. It was ok but lots of down time whenever it rained tons of maintanence dirty: clay gets into your sneakers, car, house unsteady footwork if you are not good at sliding: easy to...
