Just played on clay (har-tru) for the first time...

Posted on March 17, 2009 at 7:45am 0 Comments

I'm down in Florida for vacation and just played on clay for the first time (or Har-Tru, as it were).

Anyway, the ball definitely bites and jumps up, but I haven't noticed it to be tremendously "slower". Perhaps I don't play with enough pace.

Also, I got used to the sliding pretty quickly. Except when I get completely engrossed in a point and stop thinking about needing to slide. Then I almost end up on my rear. :-)

Hey Doug, I'm in Seattle for now, but will be coming back to STL in the fall. Hopefully we can get some people together to play tennis with regularly.
