Thanks to you and Ozza for the explanations
but,in your opinion,is it bad enough that we should all say,'To HELL with green clay!'?
Personally,I'd rather that Caro's career didn't get cut short by,say,a serious achilles tendon tear.You mention a thin surface;is this a case where they're too CHEAP to install thicker red clay courts??If so,that's pathetic
