Depending on the court surface, some athletes need to change their playing style to get their desired results. Take note of the following characteristics of tennis courts Sydney:

Clay courts – this type of court is made from brick, stone and crushed shale. Compared to the rest of the Grand Slam tournaments, the French Open requires players to play on clay courts. A distinct feature of this type of court is that it can significantly slow down the ball while producing a high bounce rate as compared to grass courts.
