Saw this only now. :eek:
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? :lol:
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.

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

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.
