An MSP has enlisted the help of Andy Murray's mother Judy in a bid to upgrade public tennis courts in the city.
Jenny Marra has produced a video to back her claims that facilities are nowhere near good enough to produce champions of the future.
Andy Murray's achievement in being the first British man to get to the final of Wimbledon since 1938 has given young tennis players a huge motivational boost.
But Dundee-based labour MSP Jenny Marra thinks more needs to be done and claims that dilapidated tennis courts show that much more could be done to invest in the game.
She carried out a spot check of various municipal tennis courts and found most were, at least, in need of some care.
She said: “There's a lot of money available, the Lawn Tennis Association and community cash back schemes do have money available but I think it's incumbent on the city council to bring some of the facilities up to standard.
"The court in Lochee is an absolute disgrace, it's disgusting, it's overrun, there's broken glass, it doesn't even resemble a tennis court but this is the sports facilitity that serves communities in Lochee, Charles and Menzieshill and quite frankly it's just not good enough."
She added that she had been in touch with Judy Murray and that she agreed that public courts need to be brought up to a better standard.
A spokesman for Dundee City Council said it was aware of the interest generated by Wimbledon and some upgrading work had been carried out.
