And from the Twitter page of Hard Rock Stadium CEO Tom Garfinkel, some shots of the construction of the stands for center court (h/t RMB2007):

Same colour surface as AO?

I quite liked the green and purple combo previously in place!

I think any upgrade is a good thing, if it creates better conditions for both the players and the spectators it is a win - win situation.

It looks really nice!
There's no getting around the sadness of losing the Key Biscaye site.

I'm heading down there in March. I'm excited to see how it feels given the unique location.

Re: Pics of new Venue

Looks amazing to me! Would have kinda liked them to keep the old court colors though but the new ones seem to fit the surroundings!

Rest in Peace Bally!
