I agree, from television stand point -  I definitely can follow the ball better on the blue clay.  Seems like it might be playing 'faster', but more slippery?  Just an observation from watching the tennis today.  It seems to be rewarding the more aggressive players, so far.

Next match, Djokovic vs Gimeno Traver. Very easy.

I have to agree, not a good match for Djokovic.

True, but this is normal. All players have their bad days.

this blue clay is one big BS. no, nothing to do with Djoko or his opponent, as Nole shouldn't be losing a set to a player who is ranked like what #whatever. I'm not sure why he plays these early rounds at masters like complete crap. As if he is bored or something ...

That's what I saw too, no intensity and not looking even interested.
He'll pick it up but not sure if will be enough.

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.

Hasta luego!

the stadium will bleed blue and there will surely be mixed reactions from players, media and everyone.......have a good trip......

Looking forward to the pics and firsthand experience. Enjoy your trip.

Thanks swish. I have tickets for Federer-Raonic tonight! Im super excited. Roger is the one player thats eluded me all of these years! Its a night match. Not sure how the pics will come out. My camera isnt built for tennis, let alone tennis at night. In any event, Ive taken plenty from the 15 matches Ive attended thus far, 6 complete and joined the others in progress.

He's nothing like Sampras but he wants be no doubt and that's why he's a wannabe. His movements will put those sumo wrestlers to shame. He's got zero net gamel. His backhand pretty much sucks. There's absolutely nothing that resembles Sampras. Nothing. Sampras was like Monet in tennis very artistic and talented. This guy is a pure ball basher a la Sharapova if you will. He just likes to hit the ball as hard as possible. His entier game is made of two shots. Even a grinder like Ferrer took him to task each time. Just cant stand him or his tennis.

well, you know I was j/k. However, I still think he is more talented than Tomic, Dimitrov and all other youngsters. He does have a very good serve, his FH is pretty good, agree with you about his weak BH ... actually, to be honest with you I'm so disappointed with all youngsters
