The ball skips and bounces low and brings down the bouncing capacity of the ball. This makes it difficult for the players to have a good control over the ball and of course, the game. Grass court games definitely need the extra edge and handiness on the part of the players. The  players listed below have managed to make it big in the grass court game.
