Furry and fluffy friends, it is clay court season and you know what that means! Time to get dirty! Slipping, sliding, and sometimes splitting your way into winning a point, game, set and match. Very physical and fun tennis to watch!
To commemorate the opening of clay court season, I wrote a poem:
Ode to Clay
Red clay, green clay
No matter, we all play!
Sure looks rusty.
Hold on tight
Not familiar with tennis on clay? Watch this video of a young Rafa Nadal (King of Mud…back when entered the scene with long hair, sleeveless shirts and ridiculous knee-length knickers) expertly execute a lonnnggg slide on clay. (Cue to 0:40 for the fun to begin)
