Blue is beautiful. And we hope you agree.
While the new blue clay courts of the 2012 Mutua Madrid Open have some of the top players in the ATP in quite a tizzy, we tend to look at things from a different point of view.
The change to blue makes sense from a marketing stand point — blue is after all the official color of the events main sponsor, Mutua Madrilena Insurance — a little blue dye added to the crushed brick might totally throw off the players’ games.
With all of the hubub surrounding the switch to blue clay at the Madrid Masters, we’ve created a slideshow celebrating all things blue.
