Well, frankly I am embarrassed at our so called "National Tennis Centre" here in Toronto. It is not even the best facility in Toronto, or Ontario, not to speak of Canada.

Quebec City has a nice facility where they stage the "Bell Challange" every year.

I've only been to nice facilities :angel:

Although on TV that men's grass tier 5 or so tournament right after Wimby at Rhode Island(?) looks pretty suckish.

I heard the Rexall Centre where they hold the Roger's was really great and that is modelled after Miami. Are you saying this is untrue?

In Montreal for sure, I heard Toronto wouldn't be as good...

It does, the Toronto facility is supposedly quite good, despite what some Torontonians might think!! The grass is always greener, I think :rolleyes:

The Indian Wells Tennis Garden where the Pacific Life is played is the best facility I've been to. Others I've seen are: Los Angeles (Home Depot Center & Manhattan Country Club), San Diego (La Costa Country Club), New York (including Forest Hills), Boston (Longwood Cricket Club), New Hampshire (old men's event), and Sarasota. In my experience country clubs are not good places to hold pro tennis tournaments. They are not set up for it and a lot of members don't like it. The event which is the most fun to attend is the Pacific Life. The facilities are beautiful and the atmosphere is very laid back. I also always enjoy attending the Acura in San Diego. They try very hard to make the public feel welcome and comfortable at La Costa. Unfortunately (for me) the worst run event is JPMorgan in Los Angeles. The facility is actually quite nice, but the public is treated quite poorly by the people running the event. I also get the impression that they treat players poorly too. Didn't even attend this event last year even though it's just a 10 minute drive from where I live and work.

Those two courts and Arthur Ashe Stadium all look the same...isn´t it even built by the very same architect?
