Re: Is the roof on Centre Court an overall positive?

I agree the matches just don't feel right somehow when the roof is closed. Wimbledon is the epitomy of tennis tradition and the idea of it being played indoors is off. But it was a necessary evil. The rain delays were an integral part of Wimbledon, but the game has become so physical that you can't risk it with scheduling. Having players play consecutive best of five matches to catch up is tough. So yeah, it had to happen, it's certainly nice to get up in the middle of the night now and not risk it being for nothing with an interminable rain delay, but it's also ruined the atmosphere a bit.
