Get rid of the whole thing, at least at this time of year. If you are going to have a clay season leading to Roland Garros, it doesn’t make sense to have a major tournament in it that is so radically different from the others due to altitude and (now) differences in the clay itself. If they want to keep it, put it in the post-USO season as a laboratory Masters tournament to experiment with new surfaces. But not in the month of May!
