Monday in Madrid

I’m missing the blue clay, I liked the color. It was a refreshing change. But I do realize that there were some players who felt the dye used in the clay made it more slippery. Well now that it’s normal clay again, I wonder if Rafa will be able to win tournament. He was unsuccessful in 2011, and last year he lost to Fernando Verdasco. Speaking of, I love this pic that Fernando tweeted of himself with Manolo Santana. He has the daunting task of playing Milos Raonic on Tuesday.fernando tweeted

Nicolas Almagro had an initial scare in his opening round. He was 1-4 down, but got back on track and eventually won the first set 6-4. He got a break when his opponent Tobias Kamke had to retire due to hip pain. Feli also lost a hard-fought three setter against Daniel Gimeno-Traver 6-2, 4-6, 2-6.

Hope Tommy can play well on Tuesday
