courts are the fastest kind of tennis courts,
next to cement courts or hard courts. Grass
courts consist of grass grown on very hard-packed soil, similar to golf greens.
The most famous grass tennis court in the world is undoubtedly the one at
Wimbledon, England, which hosts the 3rd Grand
Slam in tennis tournament every June and July. Grass courts tend to favor
serve and volley tennis players, such as John
McEnroe or Martina
Navratilova. These players take advantage of the grass surface by serving
the ball and then running to the net to cut off the return of serve. Due
to high maitenance costs however, grass courts are now rare as they must
be watered and mowed often
