Olympic Tennis Stadium



Maybe you have already seen this. The inside looks a lot like the stadium at Indian Wells (minus the deluxe airconditioned suites)

Re: Olympic Tennis Stadium

Is it an outdoor court as it appears in the picture, or has the roof been "removed" to allow an interior overview?

Re: Olympic Tennis Stadium

The Olympics this year are intended to be a USO warmup (same surface and balls) so I'm pretty sure it's outside.
