According to her, the following are the characteristics of Blue Clay from a spectator point of view:
i) The ball viewing is surely looking better.
ii) Its easier for spectators to view the ball while sitting in the stadium.
iii) The TV viewers are also endorsing the same views.
iv) The Blue Clay courts are surely looking much better & a delight to eyes.
v) The usual dust & sand at Red clay is not flying every where.
How ever, the flip side of Blue Clay:
i) The courts are too slippery.
ii) The players are finding it too hard to approach net especially while chasing down a drop shot.
iii) The usual mark of ball that gets embedded on red clay isn't leaving much impression, so without Hawk Eye, there are bound to be some controversies for sure.
Why Blue Clay should support Roger Federer
i) The court is looking like an ideal Hard court at the moment.
ii) It is looking ideal for drop shot makers as ball is holding on & even fast runners like Novak Djokovic or Rafael Nadal will find it difficult to chase down drop shots.
iii) The back hand slice shots are holding on to surface & that will surely suit Roger Federer the most.
iv) The court is so slippery that those clay court players will find it so difficult to chase down balls.
v) Plus, the bounce is looking even.
vi) Even, the shots on backhand shouldn't bounce too much,
so, actually I have more than 6 reasons to believe Roger Federer should do well at Mutua Madrid Open, 2012.
