evening matches

I was just wondering... there are evening matches at the USO, but as far as I know there are none on the other 3 Slams. Why is that?
Do you like evening matches, anyway? I do, I find them interesting, kind of. Plus there are useful in a way, especially during summer and on big tournaments. What do you think?

Sure, but in New York it's dark, too. Meaning- I was talking about playing under "artificial" light... Hope you got it now.

Just look at how the stadiums are built. If you notice with the stadiums at Rolland Garros and Wimbeldon they tend to be more open and out which makes it very difficult to put artifical lights out.

it gets dark at US Open around 7pm so its fine to play night matches.

Melbourne is same.

u dont need night matches at RG
and playing under lights is impossible on grass
around 9pm...... the grass gets wet cos of dew and comes near impossible to play.

Furthermore Wimbledon is a very traditional tourney. It´s a wonder to me that they decided to put a roof up the centre court.

I think that they should put some atificial lights because there always are some matches which are to be postponed because of the darkness. Two consequences :

1/ That changes the physionomy of the match
2/ The spectators can't see the end of the match in which they were thrilled

I can tell you one thing : in Roland Garros, only three things are important for the French Federation. Money, Money and Money. But respect for spectators ? Never. The only slam where the qualifying is not free for example ? Roland Garros (8 euros three years old for a qualifying's day, 14 euros this year, in 2010 it will be 20 for sure).
I have a thousand things more to say but that'd be too long.

I think with Clay it might be a huge advantage to some players to have night matches over day-matches (due to cooler conditions etc.) so it might cause problems with that.

The courts at Roland Garros and Wimbeldon expand outward, while The courts at the US Open expand up. If you don't know what I mean compare Arthur Ashe Stadium with the stadiums and Roland Garros and Wimbledon

Just take the example of Monte Carlo : there are not night sessions, but in the other hand, when because of the rain or other reasons, the schedule isn't over, they have artificial lights.
