I think Andy should play Monte Carlo Masters and then some of the other small court events get his skill up. I think it will be funny when Andy wins his first title of the year on a clay court...lol

What does Andy have to do to get his ranking 3 again?

At least during clay season we will continue as number 4 because this is Nalbandian's favorite surface and he is playing very good this year

It doesn't matter much on clay, most of the draws are disaster draws for Andy Suppose he draws Roger or Rafa for the quarterfinals. Will it matter when he does not make it to the quarterfinals?

Default Re: Fun in the boring mud! (the Clay Season thread)

Personally, i love clay court tennis. It is the terrain that favours most fitness, mental strength and strategic reasoning. Why boring? I remember a match between Costa and Canas at RG, after 3 hours they had just completed the 2nd set. It would require a hero not to take a nap watching that. 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!

Sure, but it was not always like that. Agassi and Courier were true contenders on clay, for Sampras he would need to change his game substantially to have even greater success than the one he had. The problem for players growing up on hard courts is that flat shots bounce up higher and the opponent has more time to react. The current generation has underachieved on clay imho.

it doesn't matter for clay but it VERY MUCH will matter for grass so he really needs as many points as he can possibly get.
