The fourth-highest and only seven-star hotel in the world, Burj Al Arab in Dubai, is home to the tallest tennis court in the world. The tennis court, which is circular in shape and hangs 1,000 feet above the Arabian Gulf, also serves as a helipad.
Andre Agassi and Roger Federer played a match on the Burj al Arab’s helipad tennis court on February 22, 2005, in advance of the Dubai Duty Free Men’s Open, which was a $1 million competition. The world’s most unusual tennis court enticed the tennis legends to engage in a friendly “hit” with one another.
The Burj Al Arab, a 321-meter-tall, man-made island hotel, is the most opulent in the world.
