Satsumu, what is up with the Khan (Atkins) courts and the visible, considerably-more-than-normal slope? It's just bizarre.

I played two USTA league matches there today, and especially on the middle two of the sets of six courts, I could tell I was moving slightly up hill when going from side to side.

Most courts are very slightly sloped or bowed for drainage, but this just seems so extreme. It's not a deal breaker by any means. It's a great complex, great courts in terms of surface and everything else but it would be even better with a normal slope.

And, while I thought they would have built a more substantial grandstand if they planned on hosting NCAAs, the individual seats on the concrete foundation behind each court is very nice. Though, I'd hope that they place awnings over them for the tournament.
