So when you realize that clay is less liked than the other surfaces, your first thought is obviously "well it's perhaps because Nadal is good in clay", it's boring.
The current world of tennis does revolve entirely around federer and nadal because that's a rivalry that has put to shame every other.
Clay was actually very respected in the 80s. I think people started hating it because of Sampras' failures in clay and the sentiment was cemented by nadal's utter dominance. I guess if federer had won a couple more RGs it would be great for clay.

Sorry Djokonauts, I am a fan of Federer now. I've learned over the years to appreciate his contribution to the game. No one will ever surpass this man's influence.
Federer ~ The consummate professional. Never retired once in a match. Does not go over the time limit on every point.

Slow hardcourts. Plexicuxion is the worst surface of all.

Clay because it takes forever to finish a point and it favours defensive tennis while I like attacking, first-strike tennis.

Guess this also aplies to slow harcourt but at least on hardcourts you don't have bad bounces.

Slow outdoor hardcourts. That being said AO is my favorite slam.

Clay. Rewards running and retrieving to much. Clay is the surface that allows the less talented players an opportunity to flourish. Just play great defense and you've got a chance on this stuff.
