I prefer the clay courts because in this courts the game its more strategic and its more paintfull for the players because sometimes they spend a lot off hours in the court only for win one game

I grew up on hard courts here in the US. Most public facilities are hard courts I'm sure. But many clubs have a type of clay called "Har-Tru" which is gray in color. Very difficult to get accustomed to clay if you're used to hard courts. But spending one Summer on clay only did much to improve my game...probably the biggest spurt of improvement in my entire life. So there's much to be said for diversifying your playing time on different surfaces I think. Grass is pretty rare here in the US, so I've never been able to experience it yet. Would be very interesting I think.

As a kid, I got to play on all different surfaces, from clay to grass to regular hard courts(US Open) to courts like the ones used in the Australian Open. I think the most difficult to get used to would be the hard court surface like they use in the Austalian Open. I love playing on clay, as it is probably the most fun because you can slide all over the place, which is nice. I did best on regular hard courts, as that is what I grew up on and trained on my whole life. Our club had indoor hard courts and outdoor clay courts, but those were only used about 6 months out of the year due to the weather. I love tennis and love playing on all the different surfaces that are available.
