    Doesn't look regulation to me. Far court seems short.

    Something is seriously wrong with that pic...
    Fence has normal perspective, while the court lines have counter perspective.

    The roof is so low, there is a house rule: In doubles both players of the serving team must be at the baseline when they serve. It's in Canada.

    Le Cap Estel Hotel -- I've actually stayed there and played there. Just around the corner from Monte Carlo.

    My neighbor's synthetic grass court. A little bit is lost in translation because it was a cloudy day so you don't get the full effect of the ocean and the Coronado Islands.

    Just back from playing a Seniors tournament in Asuncion, Paraguay. Main court of the Club Internacional de Tenis was a blast from the past ... Victor Pecci.

    Not the most exotic on Google, but by far the most beautiful and serene courts I've been on. I have the fortune of playing here 2-3 months each year:

    Kranj, Slovenia:

    It doesn't get much lovelier than burnt clay sprinkled with double rainbows.

    Reminds me a lot of where I usually play. But I suppose that's also to be expected.

    Hope Tennis Academy - Taichung, Taiwan:

    Yeah, it's a really great sports hotel/complex. The quality of tennis teaching however isn't that good. Great facilities though. Definitely worth a 5-7 day vacation if you're ever planning a visit over to Phuket.

    I've always thought some of our desert courts are great. Desert Mountain in Scottsdale AZ is really nice.
