Why are there lingering rumours about Madrid being a possible 5th GS ?

How is that even possible ? First I think the whole complex is hideous and cold, the grey steel, it looks like the courts are totally locked up, no open air, no filming of the surroundings...It's like you're playing on Mars or something. It looks like Beijing, which is horrible as well. If anything Miami is the first choice (that's my favourite stadium). But seriously, a 5th GS two weeks before RG...Very goofy idea. I wonder about the rumours, the blue clay etc.

Roland Garros should be played in Madrid or Barcelona as the spaniards win every year in France

The stadiums are ugly as hell. We were mislead by the computer generated images last year. It doesn't feel like the big event it is supposed to be, there is no buzz about the place. Epic fail so far...

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

A funny one

Actually, the "rumours" are just wild out-of-the-butt promotion by Madrid's huckster/owner Ion Tiriac. Both Federer and Nadal blew that idea out of the water as ludicrous.

There will never ever be a 5th GS!
