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

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

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

I was wondering the same. Lol, my eyes are too weak to tell whether it's real or computer generated.

Very Greek-looking! They seem to implement a lot of the acropolis type of design to their stadiums! :D
