IMO Qi Zhong Stadium at Shanghai is going to be the coolest one as soon as it is completed.

From pictures, Monte Carlo's looks beautiful, right by the water.

Re: What is most beautiful tennis stadium?

Shanghai seems to be the coolest one, though Rod Laver Arena, Hamburg's, Monte-Carlo's and Wimbledon's Centre Courts are great too.


Roger Federer

Richard Gasquet, Marcos Baghdatis, Tomas Berdych, Evgeny Korolev, Stanislas Wawrinka, Fabrice Santoro, Paul-Henri Mathieu, etc
.

Re: What is most beautiful tennis stadium?

I love Court 1 of Roland Garros. It's like some sort of arena and it looks very closed where the fans can be very close to the players.

Re: What is most beautiful tennis stadium?

I voted for Centre Court at Wimbledon. And back in the 1980's I really like the Australian Open's horse shoed Kooyong Stadium.
