What's the longest distance you have travelled mainly for tennis?

When a tennis tournament was the main reason for your trip.

Second question: What's the longest distance you have travelled for tennis on one day? I mean going to the tournament and back home on the same day.

1. Wimbledon - about 1000 km.

2. Berlin - 300 km (3 hours by car)

Luxembourg which took about 6hrs by boat and car.

and this year im going to Indian Wells which is 11.30hrs flight. Although thats not only for the tennis, we wanted to go there anyway so just killing two birds with one stone really. The first week we will spend at tennis and the second were gonna travel a bit.

Only places in Europe, France (Paris), Spain (Madrid, Tarragona, Oviedo, La Manga, Jerez and tomorrow Zaragoza for the exhibition match ), Germany (Filderstadt) and Switzerland (Zurich); which one is the furthest from England I'm not sure, possibly Jerez?

The shortest would definitely be Wimbledon; 15 minutes by train.

Vivi & Conchita & Patricia & Paola 2004 Olympic Silver & Bronze medalists, Vivi & Anabel 2008 Olympic Silver medalists - congratulations!
