Just been sent this photo. Apparently Roland Garros are trying to keep this quiet and surprise everyone with their lovely blue courts on the first day. Can you imagine the look on Rafa and Novak’s faces as they walk onto Philippe Chatrier for the first time..
Tiriac the Tinkerer has decreed that the year round slow surfaces are boring and killing Mens tennis( Are you listening WTA?) - and has decided to do something about it. The players are understandably up in arms,however, the 'blue cocaine' has been shoved up the noses of the hierachy to speed up play,shorten points and hopefully encourage SERVE & VOLLEY.
Rafa might just bring his own red clay and spread it across the center court just before the start of the final:)
