Re: Wasn't WTA Kuala Lumpur indoors?

I think there was a lot of rain last year so they played a lot of the earlier rounds undercover...


I think the semi's and finals were all outside though...





I could just be getting confused but I seem to remember something about players (namely Elena who played last year hence my interest) having to re-adjust to the different court conditions...

These courts seem to be like in the middle of some jungle.

If you had been to Malaysia you would know those trees are everywhere...


You see a heap of them as you come out of the KL Airport towards the City...

It's in the equestrian club. Next to it is a golf club. But yeah, there is a bit of jungle there.

Hearing jungle birds in the background during tennis matches is pretty cool.

I think that the ATP event in KL is indoors, maybe that's it

Re: Wasn't WTA Kuala Lumpur indoors?

A lot of airports are far away from the city.

Where is the tournament played?

Re: Wasn't WTA Kuala Lumpur indoors?

The ATP event is at the Stadium Putra in Bukit Jalil, and they have a proper stadium with air-conditioning.

On the other hand, the WTA event is held outdoors in an equestrian club. There are a total of 4 courts for matches and practice, so usually 3 or 4 players have to share a practice court. Saw Kimiko training with Safina twice. Fran practised with Alisa today, and they were talking and joking (in Italian?)

The weather is EXTREMELY hot in the morning and afternoon when it's sunny... it can be difficult to get used to the heat. I got tanned even though I was sitting in the shade most of the time
