ASB Tennis Centre, Auckland

The ASB Tennis Centre in Auckland is New Zealand's premier tennis facility. It has three indoor courts and five outdoor courts, all of which have floodlights so tennis can be played in the evening. As well as hosting domestic matches, New Zealand's two major international tournaments – the women's ASB Classic and the men's Heineken Open – are held there.  Watch Angelique Kerber of Germany and Flavia Pennetta of Italy begin their match on centrecourt in the semi-finals of the 2012 ASB Classic.
