Terrible decision by the ATP doing along with "The Don" of Madrid.
Then we will fight in the shade.

I think blue looks cool but with red you can see the fire in the tennis court. I think seeing players on blue clay will give you the feeling of grass.

Marian Vajda to Novak Djokovic, "I saw you beat that man like I never saw no man get beat before, and the man KEPT COMING AFTER YOU! Now we don't need no man like that in our lives."

what the article and Tiriac don't say is the reason for the change of colour.

money!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

the MMMM is this: Mutua Madrileņa Masters Madrid

the logo and colour of the main sponsor is blue. simply as this.

nothing more to say about the Magic Box touraments, trully,
there is reason why Spain has played all 4 DC finals in Barcelona or Seville, and none in Madrid.
and the reason is not that the RFET is in Barcelona.
 
Self-praise is for losers. Be a winner. Stand for something. Always have class, and be humble.

You can ignore reality, but you can't ignore the consequences of ignoring reality.

I think the main reason for playing DC matches in Barcelona or Seville is because of the altitude, hurts Spanish players. Apart from the political decisions.

I like how it should be easy to pick up the ball.
 
Colors don't matter to me as long as they are functional.

How can Nadal claim to have any issues with the altitude in Madrid, when he's made the final all 3 years(2009-2011)?
Then we will fight in the shade.

This was before he found the proper treatment for the knees.
 
He'll be fine is my guess and once you have a obstacle removed that can end a career it's as good a confidence booster as winning.

Eh. It looks nice in the pictures so far, like silky carpet almost. If it plays like normal clay and the ball's easy enough to see for the players and fans (live and on TV) then I don't see a problem. The close-up pics so far do seem very rich, maybe it's just a high-contrast pic.

it looks alright to me ... I think that Djoko, Rafa and Fed are making a much bigger deal that it is .... it's just a different colour, not sure why they are all upset. well, shouldn't say really upset but not happy ...

I wonder if it'll turn the balls blue after a few sets. I guess we'll have to see.

One tournament with blue clay is all I can handle, tradition has to be preserved.
