Monte Carlo Tennis - Ready to go!

The first shot shows some of the hospitality tents and the smaller courts with the Monte Carlo Beach Hotel and Restaurant La Vigie in the background.

Below (click to enlarge) you can see the Centre Court with its rows of tiered seating, with the Monte Carlo Bay Resort Hotel in the background.

These photos were taken on the 5th April - a very grey day. Today, happily the sun shines on the players.

Tomorrow - back to the Jardin Exotique. For more Monte Carlo tennis, turn on the television!

Those white tent/canopy/thingies are so festive. Now... just where were you standing to get these great shots?!

Laurie, I was standing on the road above the tennis courts. In fact this is where a lot of people get a free view of the tournament. Too far tho to see what is going on in Centre Court.

Great overview of the tennis courts. Everything looks so pristine and beautiful.

I'm with Laurie. THe white tent thingies are magical. I'm not a huge tennis fan but could get into in Monte Carlo I'm sure. Nice POV here Jilly.

What happened to the climbing roses on the fences surrounding the courts?

I played here many years ago ( mid '80's ) and have photos of these beautiful courts with magical roses.

Truly - they are the most beautiful courts in the world.
