I've safely returned from 11 days in Madrid and have jumped right into watching Rome. We tennis fans don't really get much down time eh?
Madrid was amazing. The city itself is just incredibly beautiful and I loved the tournament. I shared a lot of pics on my Instagram account, and I'll be writing a post on my travel blog soon.
I wrote some posts for The Changeover - thanks guys for the opportunity!

Hola from the Mutua Madrid Open
Just a few pics from my time at the tourney - hit me up with questions if you're interested in going!
|Manolo Santana stadium|
|Walkway to the backcourts - quiet before gates opened|
|Inside the Magic Box|
|Back court action during week one|
|Venus Williams made her first appearance here in a few years|
|View from outside the main entrance|
|Video game area always full of kids|
|Fans wait for players to arrive or walk past after practice|
|Exiting the site at night|
|The only time the stadium was full was during Rafa's matches|
|Social media wall - also showed pressers/matches on occasion|
|Aranxta Sanchez Vicario stadium was my fave - great size|
|View toward the back courts|
|What greeted me each day as I arrived onsite|
|Lovely view from the ground level of La Caja Magica|
|Bar area on the ground - sadly never hung out there for a beverage|
|Ion Tiriac collection I believe this was called|
|Love the steps up to the stadium|
