Specific features included ten new clay courts, two asphalt courts as well as shade structures, spectator viewing areas, and landscape and hardscape features.
Facilities were judged on their overall layout and adaptation to site; excellence of court surface and lights; ease of maintenance; accommodations for players, spectators and press/officials; aesthetics; signage; landscape and hardscape; amenities such as casual seating for spectators, food services and social areas; and the facilities’ participation in USTA programs.
