Hm believe it or not but for the 1st time I finally played on clay  :rofl_2:

Was avoiding it for far too long, playing only on fast HC's, but clay was surprisingly not bad. Red bathroom!   ..-) :

Grass is next.. Looking forward to it!

We only have green clay in the States. (Someone has a monopoly or something.) I really enjoy it. It's slower, and I need extra time for my ridiculous FH.

Lots of red clay out this way, more so than green.
Both at the clubs and private courts.

How did you like the bounce Lugman?
What abooot the comfort of play?
CONK da ball!!!

Not bad MT, not bad. Feels comfortable enough.
I definitely need to work on the slide and few other smooth moves, but it will come eventually.

Surprisingly, I though the bounce would be way higher, maybe it was faster clay I dunno.
Then again, I didn't have opponent who hits heavy top spin  :)~
The only issue I had, were some weird bounces all of a sudden, and ball wasn't even on the line.

I still prefer fast HC's, but it was definitely nice to switch.

I liked the green clay (Har-Tru) I played on in Florida. 

On sunny hot days, I got quite a kick playing doubles round robins and watching my topspin forehands bouncing over the older people's heads and then having them curse at me under their breath.    :trampoline: :trampoline:  :rofl_2:

After a rain, there was not as much bounce.  Then I used drop shots excessively and made them run...  :))  :Devil:

Yeah, the off bounce happens way more than on the hard courts.
It's all part of the game.
It certainly is comfortable to play on once you figure out the footwork.

I know! I just wonder how much money I'd have now if I didn't spend it all on tennis?  :king:

ah, you lucky dog. I've been planning to go to Rogers cup forever now but there's been always something that came up so I couldn't go. Unfortunately, because of my health situation it will not be possible.

However, you should have a blast. Rogers Cup is the second oldest tournament in the world if I remember correctly. Great crowd, fantastic organization. Montreal is one of the most beautiful cities in North America, beautiful European architecture . Food is great. I hope you'll have time to visit some of  famous  Montreal restaurants. 

Make sure you take lots of pictures  :)

Agreed Alex, Montreal is a neat city to visit.
Of all the major cities I've visited out of country it was by far the most enjoyable.  A tennis tourney there is just the icing on the cake.
I envy the Babbleman. :ok:

I've never been to Montreal and am looking forward to it. Alex, I'll carry you from court to court and change your diapers before I go out partying. I bought tickets in advance but seriously doubt it was necessary during the first week.

monster, hoping to get to Boston soon! I want to see some historic NE. And I'll give you a chance to punch or kiss me, for certain Hoss. :thumbs-up:
