English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. clay

    Body denotes the entire physical structure, considered as a whole, of man or animal; form looks upon it as a thing of shape and outline, perhaps of beauty; frame regards it as supported by its bony framework; system views it as an assemblage of many related and harmonious organs. Body, form, frame, and system may be either dead or living; clay and dust are sometimes so used in religious or poetic style, tho ordinarily these words are used only of the dead. Corpse and remains are used only of the dead. Corpse is the plain technical word for a dead body still retaining its unity; remains may be used after any lapse of time; the latter is also the more refined and less ghastly term; as, friends are invited to view the remains. Carcass applies only to the body of an animal, or of a human being regarded with contempt and loathing. Compare COMPANY.

    Synonyms:
    ashes, body, carcass, corpse, dust, form, frame, remains, system, trunk

    Antonyms:
    intellect, intelligence, mind, soul, spirit

    My recovery's gone great. I think it's been really successful so far ... I probably would have been ready for Monte Carlo and the clay court season.

  3. Mats Wilander:

    Rafa is a genius on clay, so far ahead tactically, it's like he has a built-in coach in his mind. You can't tell what he's going to do before he does it, but when he does it, it all looks so obvious !

  4. Sloane Stephens:

    Clay is a neutraliser. It's good for everybody... Court Philippe-Chatrier's improved Court Philippe-Chatrier results on clay, so Court Philippe-Chatrier obviously is feeling good on the surface, a quarter-final of a slam is definitely a neutraliser. There's a lot of factors that go into that. ( I'm) just going to go out and execute and I'm sure Court Philippe-Chatrier'll do the same and we'll have a good match.

  5. David Ferrer:

    This is probably the best game I have played in my life as Ferrer is one of the best on clay in the world, my game plan was to pressure his second serve and get to the net as much as I could. I played well and he started making mistakes.
