These are pretty hard to beat!
...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.
the price is pretty impressive indeed... it's better to rent it with 14 people ! :rolleyes:

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.

G.O.A.T.

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

lucky guy :p ... you're going there for holidays ?... honey moon ?! ;)
Yes, going there for Honeymoon. Although now fiance is also thinking of Fiji. That wouldn't be too bad either :)

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?

I must have won the contest cuz everybody else gave up~~!!!
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 ;)

Yes, of course she plays. I wouldn't be with a women that didn't play. She is pretty good. She played for two private colleges in northern cal and then made UCSB team (D1) as a walk on but was inelligible. However, we played 2 nites ago and i double bageled her in about 35 minutes. Still very fun to hit and practice with and we play often as a team, although that is sometimes tough cuz she's primarily a baseliner.

i'm sure the double bagel at the sunset on a grass court in the fidji islands is going to be so much romantic... ;)

i wish you a good honeymoon ! :D

its not about you. its about the court.
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.
