I could have sworn those were Andy's legs.

She obsesses over legs... I'm pretty sure she knows more about legs than you and that isn't a good thing!

The BBC have a bit of a tour of the place and it actually looks really cool. 22 courts in total, 6 indoor similar pace to our DC choice, quite slow, 6 outdoor hard similar to Flushing Meadows, 6 clay and 4 grass (i wonder if it's Wimbledon style grass cause it's considerably slower than normal grass courts). 22 onsite resident suites, state of the art gymnasium, weird new age therepy type ideas (something to do with shutting the players in a ping pong ball to stimulate motivation and creativity!?). Hydrotherapy suite, massage rooms, cafeteria of health food -apparently you wouldn't find a chocolate biscuit on site. And numerous numbers of trainers, physio's, nutritionists fitness specialists, coaches and presumably new age therapists on staff. All delivered on time, on budget and without a penny of government or lottery cash. Sounds to good to be true! Take a squint at the snaps, it's snazzy.

The results will remain to be seen, however, for at least another 10-15 years when we see if this centre can produce world class players. For the money and the facilities it boasts it should!

The Tour

The LTA headquarters moved from Queen's Club to the National Tennis Centre in Roehampton in February


There are six indoors courts among the 22 in total. They play at a slow/medium pace similar to that used in the Davis Cup tie against Switzerland.


The construction of six clay courts gives junior and senior players a chance to train on a surface on which Britons have rarely excelled


The six hard courts are similar to those used at the US Open


Roehampton has 22 residential units that have already been given a thorough testing during a Great Britain v Sweden junior tie


Esteemed Telegraph correspondent Mark Hodgkinson tests out the metropod, which is meant to leave him feeling "more alert and creative"


The state-of-the-art gymnasium was put together under the guidance of Dr Ann Quinn, the LTA's new head of sports science

LTA staff are settling in to their new open-plan office space


The restaurant has a suitably healthy menu, meaning there is apparently not a single biscuit to be found on the whole site
