Yeah well, lets hope he did the right choice (winning Wimbledon)...
That’s for the other 10 threads, already made myself hoarse on the subject. He knows best and I shall miss seeing him on clay.

This one is a simple celebration of clay - all fans!

Sort of like season’s greetings! I’m really excited about both transitioning over to clay myself and the pro events!

Clay tennis certainly has some beautiful settings. Roll on MC!:)

I wish they’d be as open about the colour of the damn tennis ball as they are about the court itself.

Clay is gorgeous and has that timeless feel about it, like grass - except on television following the ball on clay is an eye strain.

I guess white balls would show up better against the red surface than yellow ones.

Just wait for the Bullzillions to arrive, and this will become yet another "Rog afraid of Rafa" thread:eek:.

I will be waching some clay. If Rafa is back on tour healthy i expect something like last season. I dont expect too much of NextGen, will probably only get dissapointed:oops:. I fear a match between for example Rafa and Chung will be a nightmare worse than when Chung played Roger at AO. Really hope Thiem will be ready for clay!

Could we pwetty please not have yet another thread with the bickering and snipes?

@Red Rick - excepting you. Be as persnickety as you like. We’re all aware FogFans can’t help themselves. It’s a style of its own.

...and not a moment too soon. I shift over to clay myself next three months.

Enjoy hard courts and indoors but LOVE clay:








Too bad my favourite isn’t playing, but here’s to an awesome clay season for everyone!

Out of interest, given the value of land in HK, what does it cost to play tennis at a club like that?

Tennis is so goddamned expensive here it’s cost effective for me to spend spring/summer in Europe.

Per hour in HK its about $25, in Europe never pay more than €5.

Above clay courts are in Europe, except the one with the Yonex advertising, which is in Taiwan.

The crowd goes bananas for the mud (not sure if they're singing olé olé olé olé, too much slappin' goin' on)

Hopefully will be more competitive this year, would be great for the game and would help us separate genuine love for the surface from infatuation with any single player.

Well indoors in the UK you aren’t looking at £16 off peak £25 peak per hour. But outdoor clubs are mostly very reasonable, like £100-£350 per annum with no court or light fees. Public courts might be £8ph average so worth joining a club unless you hate clubs.
