    Just kidding, it was a friendly match with Agassi on the world's most unique tennis court in Dubai.

    You know what seems strange about this court....is the lack of any kind of protective barrier. There's like a 4-5 ft white chain netted barrier which links around the court. But man...to me that just doesn't seem enough.

    Yeah I agree, what if one of them hit a hewitt-lob and the other was destined to get it...

    i think its just a promotion for the hotel. they cant even be playing on this court because they will fall off the back off the court, it isnt deep enough

    secondly the surface looks like turf and the ones Ive played on have to have sand spread out on them. In pic 8 you can even see the lines where the turf sheets meet, so its a temp setup

    Definitely the most amazing court Ive seen tho

    About 20 minutes. They had to stop then because they ran out of balls (they had a basquet half-full of balls with them)...

    I especially like the picture where both Agassi and Federer are up at the net. I guess both players attempted to play S&V - must have been a new experience for Agassi :)

    On the initial TV shot there was what appeared to be the standard tennis court balloon around the court then on subsequent coverage it dissappeared to leave the appearance of the players playing in the open.Is that possible to do with modern technology?
