Is Madrid being played on blue clay after all or not. If yes, are there anywhere some photos from today?

Only the pratice courts are blue it seems.
The charity match at CC was played at red clay tonight.

There is only one outside practise court which is blue, any player is allowed to practise on it but strangely I've not seen one person on that court all day, its the only court that has been empty :o

I thought the players were supposed to hate it! Seems Lisa Ray and Gise like it.

What the hell is the point of blue practice courts?

They also had a blue practice court last year and the year before too I think. They did this to test out the surface before making a decision whether to use it on match courts or not.
The title sponsor, the Spanish insurance company Mutua Madrileņa (http://www.mutua.es) wish to use it for better branding of the tournament because it's the color of their company logo. But some high-profile ATP players like Federer and Nadal have been against it IIRC.
Apparently they have not agreed to use it for matches yet. Maybe it never will, but I think it's just a question of time. For hard court they use several different colors for different tournaments anyway.
