Nole don’t like the blue court!

12 May

World No. 1 Novak Djokovic is in danger of suffering an early exit at the 2012 Madrid Open unless he tempers his emotions on the court. 

Djokovic struggled in his first match against No. 137 Daniel Gimeno-Traver, ultimately winnning 6-2, 2-6, 6-3. It wasn’t the dominant performance we’re used to seeing from Djokovic in the early rounds, and he was furious about the unconventional blue clay that’s being used in this year’s Open.

Per BBC.com:

To me that’s not tennis. Either I come out with football shoes or I invite Chuck Norris to advise me how to play on this court. I hit five balls throughout the whole match. With everything else, I was just trying to keep the ball in the court.

When you slide on the red clay you have a feeling you can stop and recover from that step. But here, whatever you do, you are always slipping. Not a single player – not woman, not man – I didn’t hear anyone say ‘I like blue clay’.

Our Serb is p-i-s-s-e-d!   :)
