Funny: Google Earth took pictures of the German Open

Saw this only now.
It must have been last year's tournament, and considering the sparse crowd it probably was during quali weekend.
Anyone able to recognize the players?
And are there any other pics taken during tournaments on Google Earth?

Overview: Grunewald with autobahn, railway, the club Rot-Weiß and the Hundekehle-lake.



Closer look, Center Court on the left.



Center Court.



Court 1 and 2.



Practice courts and catering area.

Looks like a nice venue.
Is that green area grass or hard courts or just a general area?

Everything's possible

Re: Funny: Google Earth took pictures of the German Open

I believe these pictures were taken on May 13th, 2002, this was the day after the final.

Anyway, if there is anyone interested, I created a tour with Google Earth with all the WTA Tour Venues.

I had to name it .txt to be able to attach this, but if you rename it .kml, you are able to use it with Google Earth.
I tried to be as accurate as possible, but if you discover any errors/omissions, please let me know.
