Red vs. Blue: How are you voting?

Clearly the 2012 bid for the White House isn’t the only red and blue controversy heating up this Spring.

The new blue clay frustrated Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and others who called the TV-friendly surface slippery and dangerous. Both threatened to boycott the tournament next year if the blue clay remained.

Serena Williams isn’t buying it saying “Women are way tougher than men. That’s why we have the babies. You guys could never handle kids,” Williams told Reuters after she won the Madrid title Sunday. “We ladies don’t complain, we just do our best. On the WTA we are real performers, we are not going out there and being weenies.” Williams overpowered the top-ranked Victoria Azarenka 6-1, 6-3 to win the women’s final.

Roger Federer rallied to beat Tomas Berdych 3-6, 7-5, 7-5 and win the Madrid Open for a third time on Sunday. Federer had no issues with the blue clay. He was focused on Berdych who had beaten him 3 of their last five meetings.

Ion Tiriac who owns the Madrid Masters tournament said that keeping them or not for 2013 championship would be the ATP’s decision.

The blue surface has been criticized for being too slick, due to over-pressing the base in order to insure minimal bad bounces.
