What’s the Difference Synthetic Grass and Clay Courts?

 

Clay is a soft court, which resembles soil, making it a semi-natural surface. While synthetic grass is a man made artificial surface. 

Speed of the clay court is slower than synthetic courts, so this would influence the play. Even if it starts off evolved raining, the play can continue, because the ball will take in the clay particles, adding relatively greater mass to the ball, slowing the game. Transitioning from clay courts to synthetic grass can be tricky as you would need to adjust your style of play due to the faster court.
