Re: Center court roof debut. Sunday 17th May '09

When I was at Wimbledon about 3 weeks ago there was still lots of construction going on. Hopefullt they will be able to control the humidity inside so the grass doesn't get too slick. That seemed to be the main concern according to our tour guide.

It IS the All England Club. With the French building a roof at Roland Garros, i'm almost positive that anything less than perfect will be shameful to them.

But excited. The pictures look awesome.
