Mar 4th, 2007, 03:25 PM
sony ericsson colors - purple on the inside, green on the outside
i almost threw up when i saw them this morning :o (yes, you can see the ball better as a player, but the colors look TERRIBLE)

I played a Tournament there in January and only the Grandstand was purple! It was kind of neat. It left a purple souvenir on my shoes:lol: It was so cool playing on the courts where this big Tournament is held:)
Are all the courts purple?

Mar 4th, 2007, 08:49 PM
yup, all of the courts are purple. when i was there in january, it was only court 1 (i didn't walk over to the grandstand) and i was hoping that they were just trying out the color :p

it is really good for playing on, especially when the sun is bright. however, i much prefer the green courts when it comes to looking good. especially because it's miami and, well, everything is green :p

You have got to be kidding me, is this for real, are you serious. Not that I think you are lying croat123, but I really liked the all green courts like in 2004. Are the purple courts fast or slow?

I think its cool :cool: Anything to break the monotony is a good thing in my book :lol: :p

I like old colors of Key Biscayne... I like US Open Series courts new color, but I like that an event like Miami and some other tournaments save all green court.

nope. when you look at the stadium map on the tournament website, they colored the court there as well

Ok, I guess if the players can see the ball better...

I don't think I'll care for the colors, but will reserve final judgement when I see them in person.

Thanks for the info!

Mar 6th, 2007, 12:57 AM
I tried to post a pic from when I was there in Jan. but it was too big!

Mar 6th, 2007, 01:52 AM
So this is like what they did at the YEC in Madrid, then?

Mar 6th, 2007, 02:21 AM
I actually thought the purple looked really cool over there on the Grandstand Court!

Mar 6th, 2007, 03:55 AM
If Todd loves it, I love it ;)

Mar 6th, 2007, 08:56 PM
Should be cool to see new court colours but however I kinda liked the green colour a bit better ;)

Mar 8th, 2007, 05:34 AM
I like purple and green but I HATE HATE all blue courts. ugh!

Here's a picture!

Here's a picture!

The court does not look bad at all.

Mar 13th, 2007, 06:43 AM
not bad at all :bounce:

Mar 13th, 2007, 12:20 PM
I think they do this to match the surface at the US Open

Mar 13th, 2007, 12:31 PM
am I the only one to really like there colors :tape:

Mar 13th, 2007, 12:32 PM
am I the only one to really like these colors :tape:

Mar 13th, 2007, 12:37 PM
I think they look great. :hearts:

Mar 14th, 2007, 02:20 PM
It's not a question of like or don't like the colors... The question is all hardcourts tournaments (at least 80%) have these colors and I think all green courts is a trade image of Key Biscayne. Why change? To pu the court like every others?

Mar 14th, 2007, 03:28 PM

I liked the all green courts better

Mar 14th, 2007, 07:15 PM
Here's a picture!

Looks good to me! :bounce:

Mar 14th, 2007, 11:19 PM
hmm purple thats weird but cool, could they b that colour because of the night tennis there doing this year?

Mar 14th, 2007, 11:31 PM
i like it reminds me of wimby =) looks good the colours match well

Mar 15th, 2007, 07:38 PM
Not as bad as I thought. If it makes for better sight, I'm for it.

Mar 16th, 2007, 07:16 AM
I like it!!!

Mar 17th, 2007, 08:28 AM
purple on the inside, green on the outside

it's a nice court!

Mar 18th, 2007, 11:05 AM
It's sort of a bluey purple. To be honest I would have prefered a more garish redish purple. :devil:

But it's still ok. :)

Mar 18th, 2007, 11:36 AM
Very Nice

Mar 18th, 2007, 11:47 AM
it looks a bit like the courts in Beijing.

Mar 18th, 2007, 12:33 PM
I liked it and I think we will see ball clearly on TV ;)
