I think clay court tennis provides an excellent training on point construction, something that would help on hard courts too.
Yeah, most of the latins and spaniards do very well in clay but this surface can be a bad option for great servers or players that hit pretty hard such as Roddick. Thats why fast surfaces like grass or hard help them a lot!
