Saturdayâ€™s player quotes about the blue clay courts being used at this yearâ€™s Madrid Open:
Juan Martin Del Potro
Yeah I think you can just see it, how every player feels. There’s nothing else to say. That’s all. The conditions, as I always say, are the same for every single player. Everyone can see it, but it’s very difficult.
Asked about playing next year in light of Djokovic and Nadal threatening not play next year if the blue clay remains:
This is not the moment for thinking about that. Right now I feel bad because I lost and I did my job as best as possible. Afterwards the people in charge of the tournament will decide what there are going to do next year.
