I played in the days of the grass court. (And had someone to finance me to make a go at it). I hit on grass for the first time recently. I mean really hit on it. I got a couple of sessions on the stuff, and I couldn't believe how well I hit. The ball never bounces higher than shoulder height. It's awesome! No high backhands. No high forehands. Ever! It's like a dream come true for me, since I was taught the game with very convential strokes (eastern forehand and backhand). I have always favored the low forehand, but I didn't realize that grass favored this stroke so well. I had heard that grass bounced low, but I didn't really make the connection until I played on it. I now know what they mean when they say that Nicholas Escude is a grass courter/low ball hitter (that had always confused me, since he wasn't a serve/volleyer and I assumed that's what a grass courter had to be). I also now know how Graff played so well on the stuff as well. Even at thirty years old, I am pretty sure I could whip some Spanish Claycourter butt on grass. The stuff is like a dream come true for my strokes. Anyone want to finance a "never-was" to make a run at the Wimbledon qualies?
