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

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

if you wanted a backdrop.
then Indian Wells and Monte Carlo stand out by far.

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.

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

I prefer Court 1 at Wimbledon to Centre Court, but of the pictures shown, I'd have to say I think the Shanghai stadium, architechturally looks impressive. I like the idea of the Hamburg court, having the "umbrella", but I don't really like the shadows it cast over the court during the matches.

I'd pick Center Court at Wimby. I only saw it from outside as I didn't have CC tickets, but I did peek in and it looked beautiful. Ashe is the worse. Way too big, ugly brick facade on the outside, and the absolute worst stadium to see a tennis match in. Rexall is the same stadium as Miami. Neither are architectural feats.

Sorry but if we forget this famous word "prestigious" for Wimbledon, the centre court is awful...kaki... :rolleyes:

I love the Chatrier court but it's the only one I know and I'm chauvinist I suppose. So...

For me, Shanghai's Stadium is most beauty by out-side than in-side. But the roof is :worship: .

For me - Monte Carlo - with the amazing backdrop of mountains behind you and the sea in front - it is stunning. I also like the Pallacorda Court in Rome (that's the one with all the statues), and I agree with JMG that the old Number 1 court at Wimbledon was far more attractive and atmospheric than the present one.

I really like S. Lenglen at Rg, because it is quite big, but you are still close to the players

Architecturally I like Rod Laver Arena and the Shanghai stadium looks like it's going to be really great as well. :)

As for location, how can you not love Indian Wells with the desert and mountains set behind it? :)

Qi Zhong stadium.
If I had time and money, I know where I'd be November 12-20.
Maybe not this year but one day I would love to go to this place.
