Washington Kastles open their 2011 season with Venus Williams on July 5, seen here at the 2010 US Open.
Serena Williams will play Thursday, and John McEnroe takes the court next Tuesday. Henry Cicma, with the Tennis Channel, says the atmosphere at these games is unlike other tennis matches.
"It's like a football game," Cicma said. "It's like a hockey game. People can yell, they can scream during the point, there's coaching. It's unbelievable excitement and you have the stars like Venus Williams there giving it their all."
The new stadium holds 2600 people, but it has one feature that no other tennis stadium in the U.S. can boast and that's boat-up parking. That's right, people can take their boats to the game.
