    the court was at about 1830 m... but with the exotic conditions (the old court, the antique rackets and the fact that i was playing with some "light" trekking shoes) i'm not sure i could sense any effect due to the altitude !
    (the high bounce was more related to the surface, i think)

    another nice court that i saw (but i didn't play there) in a totally different place: in deia (on the isla del diablo aka mallorca).

    There are also some red clay courts in Bačvice (neighborhood in Split) that are right by the sea. I'll try to see if I can find a better picture than google maps.

    A perfect court for Fognini vs. Janowicz. Or Sharapova vs. Larcher De Brito.
