???green Clay???

i am trying to find out what the difference is between green clay and red clay.

have done a surf on google and all i could find was a statement from hingis saying she thought the "green clay was a touch faster than the red" , she did not elaborate.

what do you guys know about this surface? is the only difference that green clay is a bit faster than red clay?

thanks.

Red clay is made from crushed bricks, while green clay is made from like crushed stones and stuff. Green clay is generally a little faster and easier to slide on.

yeah, on green clay, it's a bit faster, and bounds higher with dry weather, but lower and even slower on wet weather.

when i played on red clay after green clay in florida... i felt red clay is more like hard court with sliding than green clay...

in america (esp. in south/northeast), there r lots of green clay...

Go! Trojans!

it was a great thread as well - one of the best i've seen on WTAworld.

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.
