I'm surprised there aren't mini vortexes on the court, given how tall the stadium is.

Arghh, They really need a roof.

Australian Open has one just to keep the heat out. Wimbledon has one to keep the rain out. Now, We need one for Us Open.

I blame global warming.

I can't even begin to imagine how expensive a roof for Ashe would be.

Neither can the USTA, which is why it will never be built.
