Re: S.Q.T. (stupid question thread)

Yet one more question about roofs, how long it takes at Halle to continue playing? Wikipedia says roof takes 88 seconds to get closed but does it take more time before play can continue? Anyway, it takes less time than at Wimbledon, but why? I don't believe the explanation of Wimbledon's bigger Centre Court as CC has 15,000 seats and Gerry Weber Stadion has 12,300, so Gerry Weber Stadion is also a big arena. Might Halle's arena be less indoor-like than Wimby's CC when the roof is closed? This is the best pic of Halle's roof I've found:

Stan Wawrinka
2014 Australian Open Champion | 2014 Monte Carlo Masters Champion | 2015 French Open Champion

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga
2008 Paris Masters Champion | 2014 Toronto Masters Champion
