Tennis Australia has just launched the new Tennis Australia Clay Court Research Centre at Sydney’s Macquarie University.
The launch on Wednesday, attended by media, Tennis Australia’s president Steve Healy and former players John Fitzgerald, Wally Masur and John Alexander, saw Tennis Australia present its research into more refined and advanced clay court surfaces, play-tested by those in attendance.
Im not sure this is a great idea. Tennis Australia should really be focusing on sending the countries top 200 players over to Europe to play on real clay against the Spainish, French, etc. This is the only way they are going to learn how to construct points properly!
