Lotus Court

The 10,000-speculator main venue of the National Tennis Center, which is in use now, is composed of twelve petals, which stretch their bodies under the blue sky and white clouds, and seem like a lotus flower in blossom. Thus, the venue is named the Lotus Tennis Court. The stand in the central venue is divided into twelve parts, which become higher and higher as the quantity of seats in each part changes and just look like twelve petals. These petals and the white cover overlap to form an unearthly lotus flower.

A number of top tennis stars shed their tears for victory in the Lotus Tennis Court as early as in the Olympic Games. The Swiss tennis king Roger Federer and his compatriot Wawrinka bagged the champion of the men's doubles, and the scene of their embrace has become a permanent memory of the Lotus Tennis Court. Later, Nadal, a hero from Real Mallorca, won the gold medal of the men's single. He not only made his Olympic dream come true, but also surpassed his biggest rival Federer to become the then number one in the world!

Chinese women tennis stars have also created many records under this blossoming lotus flower. Zheng Jie and Yan Zi joined hands to win the bronze medal of the women's doubles at the Olympic Games, and proved their reputation as the best partners for women's doubles. Also in the Lotus Tennis Court, Li Na defeated a few grand slam champions such as Kuznetsova and Venus Williams, and became the first Chinese face that marched into the final four of the women's singles in the Olympic tennis event.

In 2009, China Open was upgraded in every aspect. The National Tennis Center became the venue of China Open, a WTA Crown-Pearl Tournament, and the Lotus Tennis Court has witnessed a number of moving moments.

If Safin's departure has left sadness, then, the miracle created by Zheng Jie/Yan Zi by saving six game points in succession and defeating the Stubbs-Stosur has demonstrated the traditional persevering spirit of Chinese sports athletes; the battle between the young beauties Peng Shuai and Sharapova, during which Peng Shuai beat Sharapova at a big score, has represented the enhancement of China's tennis sport; Zhang Shuai's defeat of Safina, the world's number one at that time, proves a promising future… All these are the limitless wonders that have been left in the limited time in the Lotus Tennis Court, and provided a feast often recalled by global fans.

In the 2009 season, China Open was upgraded in an all-round manner to become the top tennis event in Asia, and moved to the National Tennis Court with better facilities. This year, China Open will still encompass the WTA Crown-Pearl Tournament and the ATP 500 event. Such a large event scale means the entire venue will witness one wonder after another in the game season. To make fans better enjoy the games, the organizing committee has decided to use two central venues. Besides the Lotus Tennis Court, a 10,000-speculator venue in use now, the Moon Tennis Court will provide another stage for many stars.

Lying close to the 10,000-speculator central court is a small delicate flower. The flower and the Lotus Tennis Court set off each other and jointly forge the “natural” landscape with the Olympic Forest Park as the background, so the flower is named as the Moon Tennis Court.

With a total of nearly 4,000 seats, the round tennis court has staged multiple superb performances since the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games. After the upgrading of China Open, the number of games has jumped, and the Moon Tennis Court has also become another big stand, only second to the Lotus Tennis Court. In 2009, Peng Shuai, a Chinese female tennis player, created the miracle of a perfect black horse, and defeated Jankovic, who ranked third in the world at that time. Jankovic, an individualized beauty from Serbia, was the world No.1 in the 2008 WTA game season.

Besides this furious battle that kindled the passion of Chinese fans, the Moon Tennis Court has also witnessed the wrestle of Zheng Jie-Yan Zi, known as the best partners for women’s doubles in China, against their rivals, and here is also the starting point of Zhang Shuai, Han Xinyun and other Chinese tennis players who will go to the international arena.

Following the upgrading of China Open, many top stars came here to demonstrate their skills. In the Moon Tennis Court, Chinese fans witnessed the wonderful performance of Serena Williams, known as Serena Queen; Kuznetsova, the double champion at the US Open and the French Open; and Wozniacki, the new-generation tennis beauty from Denmark. At the same time, the Moon Tennis Court also provided a stage for Roddick, the former world’s number one, Ferrero, the former champion of the French Open, the famous double players Bryan Brothers, Blake, a cool American guy, Cilic, the silver medalist of 2009 China Tennis Open, and Soderling, a Nordic killer.

In the 2010 season, China Open will definitely become more wonderful. As one of the two central courts, the Moon Tennis Court is bound to welcome shining stars, and all these are only for the fans!
