I need a bit of advice about clay.
Im playing a tournament startig on Sunday on clay, and ive never played on it before. Im a bit worried about making an ass of myself on it, especially since my double handed shots are generally flat and low. Worried also about the movement. I have quite a mixed game so wouldnt have that much trouble adapting to something easier, so does anyone have any tips how to do that?

My advice would be to try to arrange a practice session beforehand if possible to get yourself accustomed to sliding into shots. Also, work on your kick serve out wide into the ad court (assuming you're a righty).

Probably too late now, but definitely hit on the surface beforehand.

The first time I played on clay, as Sharapova might say, I felt like a cow on ice. That's coming from someone who normally considers his movement to be his greatest asset. The footing is completely different.
