Madrid Open: Federer vs. Berdych...and WILL SMITH

Did you see Will Smith everywhere during the Madrid Finals? Will Smith was in the crowd and they showed him like every 5 minutes. He was even on stage at the trophy ceremony and presented Roger a framed Men-In-Black suit. Not sure if this is some mega-promotion with the movie studio (Will is on a promo tour for MIB 3) and tennis but you would think that you were watching a Will Smith movie during the finals. Mr. Smith presented the frame in what seemed to be pretty good Spanish. Nice effort for the locals on his behalf, I must say.

So back to tennis. After some big names got eliminated and vowed never to return to the Madrid Open if they continued to use the blue clay surface  (really Rafa and Novak?), Federer finds himself vs Berdych in the finals. Berdych played amazing and had a better winner/unforced error differential but his level dropped a bit in the last set. Federer was still able to squeak out a a tight win with a score of 3-6, 7-5, 7-5.

Congrats to Federer and let's see if you can become #1 again!

Blue clay ain't that bad
