Venus' hot ass attire is better suited for a night match anyway. "ooh-la la!"

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

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

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

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

They need lights, hawkeye & more than 1 court with a roof. With all of the technology in the world now days there is no reason the chairman should have to run up and down to look at a mark that may be wrong or not clear. The French Open & the US Open should both have roofs by now on at least 1 court. Both tournaments can experience a lot of rain and it only hurts the players, especially the ones playing doubles also.

oh they totally should.
lighted courts have no impact on their 'tradition,' so they should save everybody the trouble and just implement them.
