Hog wash. Sampras was getting over 5000 rpms of spin in an 85 sq inch frame, using a full gut set up strung in the 70's.

Also, dimitrov,nishikori, and the williams all used the gut in the mains and the 4 g in the crosses.

Also, the mains is where one gets the performance from the string, not the crosses.
