ATP: Madrid Open can't have blue clay in 2013
In a posting on the tour's website Saturday, ATP President Brad Drewett says he decided blue clay courts will not be allowed at tour events next season.
He says that while the new color, in place of the traditional red clay, ``may have offered better visibility on television, there were clearly issues with the quality of the courts in Madrid this year, which were not acceptable.''
