Some early bits from the draw

Raonic to play Nalbandian 1R then Roger waits for the winner  :thumbs-up:

Tsonga to play Haas 1R  :thumbs-up:

What a nightmare draw for someone who will be playing their first MATCH this year on clay! :head-smack: :head-smack: :head-smack:  Both Raonic and Nalby are playing pretty good right now!  Gee.... :(

It's like when they used to seed 16 at the slams. You never knew who you were going to get! Makes it exciting  :)

I'm leaving for Madrid in about an hour. I'll take plenty of pics and let you know what I think of Ion The Terrible's blue clay first hand.

We'll have to see how the streaming is and how well the blue clay looks.
 
It seems like it will at least let you follow the ball, the stream I had today for the Estoril final wasn't too good and couldn't follow where the ball was.

was watching the match between youzhny & a qualifier now..

Blue clay does look fantastic..
Visibility of ball is definately better..
