Henri Leconte: When hot and sunny, the clay at RG is faster than Wimbledon's grass

No link or video or anything because it was only mentioned just before in a replay of the Murray/Machenko match on CH7.

Anyway, whilst discussing Murray's ability on the 3 different surfaces, one of the commentators mentioned Henri Leconte had told him that he believes the clay of Roland Garros is faster than grass these days when it's hot and sunny.

I know grass courts have slowed down significantly over the years, but is it seriously that bad now? What a sad state of affairs.

Henri Leconte is an idiot.

I want to see 70-68 in the deciding set on RG.
