Why does Wimbledon's play end so early?
It gets dark after 8p.m., I get it. But is it mainly because the grass gets slippery? If not, can they install lighting on the courts .... that wouldn't help, at all?
Also ... I kept seeing (from the French Open, at least) that they would 'call' a match for 'darkness' ... sometimes ... at, like, 9:45 or 9:50p.m.
I don't know about you, but I live in New York, and around 8:45, 8:50 p.m., it gets very dark here (can't possibly play tennis). Are France/England in some sort of different latitude/longitude where the sun literally sets later?
Wow, this whole post sounds pretty juvenile and stupid, please forgive. But, I hope someone can answer .... thanks!!
