To watch - clay.
To play - indoors.

To watch - I'd say outdoor hard.

To play - i've never played on a clay court before - what is it like? Nice? I like playing on carpet and grass though.

I'd have to say clay

even though I've never had the chance to play on it (well, same goes for grass and carpet aswell), I just love the look of it, and I really enjoy all the sliding around

I voted for grass, as I love the serve & volley game But I must admit that my new favourite (well one of my favourites) Guillermo Garcia Lopez rocks on clay

Wimbleton has a fast playing surface, with an inconvenient bounce. Skilled servers and vollyers are at a huge advantage.
Only one serve-volleyer - Ancic - reached the semi-finals this year. That's as many as in the FO.

The most you can say is that grass gives serve-volleyers the fair chance they are denied on the other surfaces in the modern game.
