Re: Your dream courts to play on

Hmmmm, The blue clay of Madrid would be amazing experience to play on, so would Wimbledon centre court;and have you seen that stadium they've built for Wuhan! Woah, imagine playing in front of a packed court there! But I'd have to say Wimbledon overall

Re: Your dream courts to play on

I don't think there is a grass court within 100 miles of where I love, sadly, so it'd have to be just any ole grass tennis court

There's like 4 or 5 tennis clubs with grass courts within 5 miles of my house.

Have you ever played on them?

If so how was it? I Google grass courts by my area and got a "there are 0 courts or clubs with grass within 100 miles of your area"

You have no agency in this match. You might start to wonder if you have free will. Perhaps solipsism is true after all - is it Jankovic's world and you're simply allowed to live exist in it? It's basically existential waterboarding.

Re: Your dream courts to play on

Centre Court, Wimbledon Championships. For me that court and being able to play on (especially on finals days) is the greatest honour a tennis player could have.



The above court looks amazing to me. Where is it?

Sabine Lisicki | Sam Stosur | Camila Giorgi | Monica Niculescu | Yulia Putintseva

North Korea | Rebels | Misfits of Tennis

Re: Your dream courts to play on

Court Philippe Chatrier.

I got to go to Roland Garros, and it's still my favourite Grand Slam.

In terms of private courts...I'd love to have played on a grass court in a wealthy suburb of London. That would also be ideal.

Next stop: Roland Garros

Ana ('08 RG), Serena (21), Venus (7), Petra (2), Angie ('16 AO)
Vika (2), Sveta (2), Simona, Garbi, Ka. Pliskova
Aussie Kim, Mahree (2), Monica (9), Dokic, Sandrine, Jie

Yes of course. I'm a member of one of the clubs. It's incredibly cheap for under-30s, something like £100 for a year. Not a big fan of grass though, I prefer a higher-bouncing ball so I mostly play on the hard courts.
