Grand Slam (tennis)
The GRAND SLAM tournaments, also called MAJORS, are the four most-important annual tennis events. They offer the most ranking points, prize money, public and media attention, the greatest strength and size of field, and greater number of "best of" sets for men. The Grand Slam itinerary consists of the Australian Open in mid January, the French Open
French Open
in May and June, Wimbledon in July, and the US Open in August and September. Each tournament is played over a period of two weeks. The Australian and United States
United States
tournaments are played on hard courts , the French on clay , and Wimbledon on grass . Wimbledon is the oldest, founded in 1877, followed by the US in 1881, the French in 1891, and the Australian in 1905. However, of these four, only Wimbledon was a major before 1924–25, the time when all four became designated Grand Slam tournaments. Skipping Grand Slam tournaments—especially the Australian Open because of the remoteness, the inconvenient dates (around Christmas and New Year's Day) and the low prize money—was not unusual before 1982, which was the start of the norm of counting Grand Slam titles

Grass Court
A GRASS COURT is one of the four different types of tennis court on which the sport of tennis , originally known as "lawn tennis", is played. Grass
Grass
courts are made of grasses in different compositions depending on the tournament. Although grass courts are more traditional than other types of tennis courts, maintenance costs of grass courts are higher than those of hard courts and clay courts. Grass
Grass
courts (in the absence of suitable covers) must be left for the day if rain appears, as the grass becomes very slippery when wet. Grass
Grass
courts are most common in Britain , although the Northeastern United States

also has some private grass courts. CONTENTS * 1 Play style * 2 Players * 3 Professional tournaments played on grass * 3.1 Summer grass season * 4 See also * 5 References * 6 External links PLAY STYLEBecause grass courts tend to be slippery, the ball often skids and bounces low while retaining most of its speed, rarely rising above knee height. In addition, there are often bad bounces. As a result, players must reach the ball faster relative to other surfaces, and rallies are likely to be comparatively brief; therefore, speed and power are rewarded on grass
