Mornin', everyone. Well, it certainly seems that the blue clay agrees with at least one player - Serena Williams. She looked simply terrific today against Maria Sharapova, who's been playing some of the best tennis of her career in recent months.

I don't know about you, but I've been fascinated as I've followed the controversy over the blue surface, and plan on posting more thoughts on it in the coming days. Right now, though, the focus is on that blue court in quite a different way, as this little matter of deciding winners and losers is not yet determined.

Those of you who enjoyed the Deuce Club in past times might want to drop around this evening, as there will be one posted by around 6 PM. Feel free to used that one at the start of the action in Madrid tomorrow as well.

This will be your match-calling thread for today, enjoy the tennis!
