Well, frankly I am embarrassed at our so called "National Tennis Centre" here in Toronto. It is not even the best facility in Toronto, or Ontario, not to speak of Canada.

Quebec City has a nice facility where they stage the "Bell Challange" every year.

Bahia facilities are pretty nice.
Its on a super resort, where players can have lots of fun.

All the best to Anastasia Myskina, Elena Bovina and Svetlana Kuznetsova!
Watch out: Myriam Casanova, Maria Kirilenko and Maria Sharapova!

I've only been to nice facilities

Although on TV that men's grass tier 5 or so tournament right after Wimby at Rhode Island(?) looks pretty suckish.

I heard the Rexall Centre where they hold the Roger's was really great and that is modelled after Miami. Are you saying this is untrue?

It does, the Toronto facility is supposedly quite good, despite what some Torontonians might think!! The grass is always greener, I think
