Dont worry. Some people will try to use anything to criticize Americans. Apparently the destruction of the game of tennis is our fault now too.

The magic box in Madrid Spain, is almost complete , some more landscaping, clean the pond water and a few more stands for those courts outside.

The metallic skins looks cool at nigth sense the ligth from the inside shine throu. But its alot more impresive with the roofs open.


Some pics of the inside. One of the most modern tennis stadiums i seen, even the red seats look cool, they are translucent by the way. Perfect venue for madrids 2016 olympic bid.

The Australia Open is new, with the crowds from all over the globe adding to a relaxed, uber fun and very fresh and modern take on tennis. Very Australian. The tennis centre is very up to date (and getting a make overin the coming years.) Bright colors complement the vacinity, and it really has a theme park vibe what with all the attractions.

Roland Garros is stunning and uzes sophistication. The crowds are loud and French. Booing is a coming occurance and it makes for potencial bull fights as players not only have to battle their opponent but the people in the stands! The elegant complex suits this stunning slam so perfectly, the red clay being complemented perfectly by the teal green.

Wimbledon is sublime and regal in every sense of the word. Dark greens and light lush grass smatter the complex. The dark purples, whites, greens and golds perfecly reflect the torunament's prestigous history. Crowds are polite though have become louder with every passing year. Very English. And the main stadiums feel as though they could only ever host a tenis tournament.

The US Open. It is very NYC. Blue, red and white is seen all over the tournament's complex, enhancing just how YANK the place really is. Bosting some of the biggest tennis stadiums in the world, the crowds sound as though they have just come from a baseball game. Music inbetween changes overs, only adds to the wicked night sessions. Love that it is set within industry complexes and is near Queens. Very Urban!

I can't pick a favorite slam. And architecture/complex wise, I love them all for their unique reasons.

Loranga, the courts went from a rebound ace surface to a syntheic hardcourt, hence the cahnge to blue. Now I guess they match the new blue signing. Before KIA was the main sponsor and the courts and back drops were all green, the royals blue Ford backdrops didn't really fit the lime green court. I like the new sky blue colour scheme a lot!
You have no idea how happy I am that I live in a city that hosts one of the world's four Grand Slams

Paris, London, New York and Melbourne are in an exclusive club. I can't wait 'til next year's Australian Open.

Indeed, very exclusive !

In Paris, we are afraid to lose this status, because many other tournaments, like Madrid Masters, could become a Grand Slam instead of Paris....
That's why Roland Garros, is going to expand with a new centre court.

The Foro Italico, seat of the Rome Masters (Internazionali d'Italia), arguabily the most prestigious clay tennis tournament in the world after the RG.

General view:


Old Stadio Centrale (cap. 10.000)


Stadio della Pallacorda (cap. 3000)



The Centre Court was demolished in 2008 to make room for the new stadium, which is currently u/c and will be inaugurated for the 2010 edition.

Rendering of the new stadium:





And this was the provisional Centre Court for the 2009 edition:

Nice venue. Monaco is probably 2nd on clay though.

I was expecting this objection. Let's just say it's a dead heat.

True, let's call it a tie!

The small stadium with the statues is very funky!

Let's compare this to the other Grand Slam sites:

Wimbledon: overall daily ground capacity: 40,000 (before 2009: 36,500)

Center Court: 15,000 (formerly 13,800), retractable roof

Court N°1: 11,429 (old N°1 Court: 7,328)

Showcourt N°2: 4,000 (before 2009: court 13)

Court N°3: 2,990 (770 standing) (before 2009: court N°2 AKA "Graveyard of Champions")

Other showcourts: 4 (800), 18 (788)

Courts 7, 8 (both 250), 12 (1,500), 14, 15, 16, 17 (all 4: 318) and 19 (305) also have stands.

Courts 5, 6, 9, 10, 11: no set capacity

AN EXTRA SHOWCOURT WILL BE CONSTRUCTED (2,000 CAPACITY)

US Open:

Arthur Ashe Stadium (23,200)

Louis Armstrong Stadium (10,200)

Grandstand (6,000)

Courts 4, 7 and 11: 1,000+

Roland Garros:

Court Philippe Chatrier: 14,840
Suzanne Lenglen: 9,959
Court 1: 3,518
Court 2 -- seating capacity of 1,477
Court 3 -- seating capacity of 702
Court 4 -- seating capacity of 294
Court 5 -- seating capacity of 280
Court 6 -- seating capacity of 280
Court 7 -- seating capacity of 780
Court 8 -- seating capacity of 432
Court 9 -- seating capacity of 1,090
Court 10 -- seating capacity of 1,580
Court 11 -- seating capacity of 260
Court 12 -- seating capacity of 150
Court 13 -- seating capacity of 244
Court 14 - seating capacity of 120
(note: I found the above numbers, but they somehow don't seem to correspond with the size of the stands on the plan, the information dates back to 1999)

Projects: retractable roof on Court Philippe Chatrier, extra tennis stadium (16,000?)
