Have a look at new Wimbledon Center Court





The old one looked much better...made that court so unique

But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams

Re: Have a look at new Wimbledon Center Court

People don't seem to understand that it's only temporary

Every year wimbledon comes round and people complain that the rain ruins it and there should be a retractable roof...well now they're doing one, everyone complains "It's not the same" "I like the old one"

There will be a roof...it just doesn't come overnight.

and the last couple of years at least it has rained less at Wimbledon that it has during Roland Garros and the U S Open too!

Thanks for the pics anyway spiceboy! Good news there are more seats but it looks like it bears quite a resemblance to the 'new' No. 1 Court. I hope the special Centre Court atmosphere hasn't been lost; I guess we won't know until the roof is put on.....
