Thumbs up Madrid

We have a thumbs-down thread on Madrid so I thought we need to have a thumbs-up one for all the posters that are enjoying the tournament

Here is what I love about the tournament:

1) On site photography from HAOCHEN-GOAT



2) The emotions we saw from the players when remembering Elena Baltacha and I am sure the tears will also flow on Saturday when Dinara Safina makes her retirement ceremony

3) The "fast" clay courts made possible by the high altitude

4) Unlike Stuttgart, all of the top players are through except for Angie Kerber ... heck even Quitova won her matches somehow

5) Exciting matchups like Na v Scone, Maria v Samantha, Shuai v Serena, Aggie v Genie, Sara v Fran, Caro v Roby, Na v Jie, Na v Flip, Samantha v Garbine

Re: Madrid

Agreed, so am I. But whether that is the case after Ana's match is yet to be seen, we will have to wait and see...

Re: Madrid

The scheduling, though, is questionable. Serena plays Sunday, and she doesn't play again until Wednesday? Baltacha's death has dampened my interest in the Madrid tournament. Just need a few more days.

Re: Madrid

I've seen a lot more WTA the first few days than Miami, so I consider that a positive.

Re: Madrid

The problem is that nobody is questioning the level of play, or at least the level of the players out there. It is a Premier Mandatory, most of the big guns are still out there so I am sure the upcoming days will be super interesting.

On a different note, many ppl just wish more fans would follow this great show.
However, on a positive note, there were a few more people for Kvitova's match.

WTA supervisor is in charge for that. Madrid or Spanish officials has nothing to do with that. That very same WTA supervisor (name it Giulia Orlandi or Tony Cho) will be doing that same job in Rome, Eastbourne or Cincinnati.

Re: Madrid

Will Safina be giving a retiring speech at Madrid AND Rome?

This tournament is definitely not as big of a flop as Indian Wells always is

Pretty much sums it up for me.

Bally's passing is a bitter pill though, has left me with a sad underlying feeling, despite the generally pleasing results and enjoyable matches
