At first, I thought Nadal and Djokovic were being whiners about the blue clay in Madrid, but then…both lost matches they should have won. I mean, Nadal losing on clay is a pretty weird occurence, especially so early on.
Both Nadal and Djoker are pretty much saying they won’t play the event next year if the blue clay is back. Their main arguments seem to be that:
It is super slippery, much more than the regular clay
It is harder for them to see the ball properly
What do you think?
Meanwhile, Federer slides right into the semifinals.
