Isn't RG going to build a roof for Chatrier? At least I think USA's slam has more stable position than France's, France might lose their slam unless they do what ITF or TV channels want. USO are also going to improve the venue but they'll build a new bigger stadium court to replace Louis Armstrong Stadium instead of building a roof for Arthur Ashe Stadium, maybe to get more ticket revenue. I don't think roof was necessary for Wimby's CC, I think they have a very stable position in Tour. Maybe they just wanted to be modern in something.
