Really? $30 isn't that bad. I paid $25 once for an early round at a challenger where there was only one court going at a time

It is on red clay I believe at River Oaks. Not quite the same as the clay at FO however.

Yes, the tournament is on a red clay. Here is a picture of some of the practice courts...

If I remember correctly from the Sampras-Ginepri exhibition that was played here, this court can play about as slow as Hamburg.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.
