    ...and some of them need very courageous ballboys !!! ;)


    i would like to see the snow court (with snowmen playing ?!)...
    the MCCC (monte carlo country club) courts are also really beautiful, between the sea and the mountains !

    (even better in reality !)

    ...and nobody has a picture of a tennis court on the edge of a cliff ? on the top of a volcano ?...

    Man, the quality of the courts pictured in this thread has gone way down hill... Remember the good old days of the early posts when the courts truly were exotic and cool?

    OMFG, I checked out the place because of my upcoming honeymoon and it costs $15,000 per week. That's a really cool court, but i bet i could find another carribean court that isn't quite as pricey.

    guys how did you get past security and my attack dogs? I strictly informed security to keep paparrazi types off my property - someone is going to get fired.

    I think the prize would be higher, if the court was locked inside a cage, or something.
    It must be awful to pick up all the balls down there on the beach :p

    sorry to say it to you so rudely but your attack dogs got easily corrupted with a yummy string of sausages !!! :D

    ... even more considering it's infested of sharks !!! :rolleyes:
    maybe this could give some clues for answering the thread "Tennis players that got lost?"

    LOL!

    Anyway, I must say I'd prefer the Fiji court if it's still in the same shape as the picture shows it. Did your fiance decide between Fiji and Bora Bora yet?

    Well, sir, it's not because everybody gave up, but because we just don't wanna ruin your honeymoon. If somebody else won the contest you would be like: "Honey, I was so close to winning that TW contest!" throughout the whole honeymoon, and your wife would be annoyed. Just Kidding ;)

    Or i would be like, "Oh honey, why did we come to this wretched Fiji place with the grass court, when _______ posted a link to a much better court. We should've gone there!!!"

    Fiji it is. I'll be sure to post some pictures of the beautiful Fijian wome...ummmm tennis courts.

    I disagree, it's about ME and then it's about the court. We have to prioritize here diegaa, you know that. ;)

    I was just trying to show everyone the surroundings, I mean that's really what makes it exotic, we all know what hardcourt and white lines look like, I hope.
