Re: Forget Hawkeye...should Roland Garros get lighted courts?

The AO & Wimbledon have a roof. All the majors should have at least 1.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: Forget Hawkeye...should Roland Garros get lighted courts?

of course

cancelling matches and reporting them to tomorow while it was still daytime and play had ceased on some couts, just because they were afraid the matches might be stopped for obscurity , is ridiculous , especially knowing it's supposed to rain all day tomorrow

Conchita MARTINEZ-Mary PIERCE-Lindsay DAVENPORT-Martina HINGIS-Serena WILLIAMS- and new legend Monica PUIG
Kata Srebotnik - Anabel Medina-Garrigues - Arantxa Parra-Santonja
Garbiñe Muguruza- Caroline Garcia- Polona Hercog- Kimiko DK - Eleni Daniilidou ...

Lights would be nice. Just in case the sun goes down the match continue and not run into tomorrow and effect everyone else that has to play on that court

Re: Forget Hawkeye...should Roland Garros get lighted courts?

They're building the new venue on which 3(?) courts will have roof and therefore lights as well.

Do no harm, but take no shit.
