Is Madrid's blue clay faster than indoor hardcourt?
People are saying it's faster than the quickest indoor hardcourts on tour, even lower bouncing than London's WTF and by far the most slippery court surface ever seen.
This would certainly help explain Nadal's loss. And I have a suspicion he may have tanked today's match in protest and disgust for the surface. Now I am no fan of Nadal but you have to admit it's suspicious that he lost a 5-2 lead over a guy that he beat down just one week ago.
Compared to other clay, and hard court masters, just how fast/low bouncing is this blue clay?
