Is Pietrangeli the best outside court of a tennis tournament?

Outside court definition here = you don't have to pay extra to get into, just a ground pass can do.

Beautiful court design, which the court is surrounded by lots of statues. Nice atmosphere since the scheduled players are Italians

any other good example of best outside courts in other tournaments?

I like all the courts and the whole atmosphere. It has a Mediterranean Wimbledon atmosphere. A week ago it was warehouses in Madrid.

I also suspect Pietrangeli wouldn't be as attractive in person, when you're sitting there with 1/2 a beach in your eyes!

Margaret Court Arena at the AO always seems to have a great atmosphere.

It does, but the structure itself doesn't have the character of the aforementioned.

I love the Pietrangeli court at Foro Italico. It is an absolutely beautiful mini-stadium! Serena Williams will be playing Ana Medina Garrigues on Pietrangeli tomorrow, which I think is fantastic. I love when top players get outside of the absolute biggest courts at the big tournaments. Some people complain when top names play on outside courts, but I don't get it. It's not like this is a small court by any means. It could be the main court at many smaller tournaments. One of the best parts of Wimbledon, for me, is that you see tons of the top women on Courts 2, 3, 12, and 18. (They don't get billing equal to men on the top stadiums, which isn't really right, but that's another story.) Here are two more pictures of my two favorite smaller courts (also Pietrangeli and Court 18):

I also really like Montreal's court 1, experienced some awesome atmosphere when I went there in 2004.

Re: Is Pietrangeli the best outside court of a tennis tournament?

It's very nice, I love the courts in Rome

If it's the best outside court, I don't know. Wimbledon has some nice outside courts too, I like Court no.2 a lot

Re: Is Pietrangeli the best outside court of a tennis tournament?

Brisbane second court has a canopy over it. Looks really cool and gives good shade.
The following its the send two in the second picture. With stands and cheering fans its really nice, even though it doesn't look great:


Nettu + Lera + Sofishka + Katu + Carolsh + Miley + Lissi + Kaia + Gendra + Eva + Saara + Matti + Kenneth + Jürgen + Alex
