If you don't play on the professional level, (I mean not that much) , you'll stay (be) healthy. And even better if you have a chance to play on a clay courts. (It's easier to stay healthy and avoid injury on that surface, it's seems more organic to me).

I really think so. As for me there's no question. But from the other hand may be it's just a different approach.

Clay courts are softer, and I dont know how to say...deeper?

Anyway you should try it yourself.

BTW I've never played on grass, have you? How does it feel?

Hehe no way, i have never played on grass courts nor clay courts. THey are both very foreign court types to me, but i do wish to try both surfaces.

Re: How long have YOU played?

i started playing junior year of high school to senior year, was on the team first as jv and then singles. i went to college and pretty much stopped except for the very seldom saturday swing. in my last year of college, i took a class and it was very much a process of relearning strokes and footwork while learning new things. that has continued until today, a year and a half later of figuring things out, making a million subtle adjustments and corrections to my technique,i feel like im playing good tennis for the first time.

Re: How long have YOU played?

Oh, it's been about 40 years for me. I started as a young lad and worked my way onto the pro tour where I spent 10 years and achieved a career high rank of 14. Some of you may be familiar with my son, Xristos. We share many of the same qualities.

Re: How long have YOU played?

I put 1+ but I haven't played for a full year yet. The second Saturday of Wimbledon will be my first anniversary. I only really started watching Tennis last Spring and by the time Wimby rolled around I was hooked and decided to take a private lesson at my local club to see if it was something I could enjoy playing. I don't think I have ever loved something so much, I play at least 6 days a week. I'm not all that good right now (3.5) but I feel like I'm making big improvements month to month and it's not like I'm going to stop playing anytime soon.

It's abit weird to say, but I really feel like Tennis has been life changing for me. I never considered myself to be physically inclined, so I'd always avoided sports. It's hard to describe the difference being active and lighter (50lb) can make on a persons entire lifestyle and outlook.

Whatever... FOREVER.
