Re: Evening sessions at Wimbledon
Impossible to have night sessions at Wimbledon because:
– temperatures in London can drop dramatically at night (even after a hot summer's day). 6–8 degrees is not unusual in June/July and this will be very uncomfortable for the spectators.
– cold and wet nights can make the grass slippery and this will make play dangerous for the players (even now, in a hot day, grass is a lot more slippery at 6pm than it is at 12pm)
– night sessions in Centre Court only, is also out of the question because covering the court for long periods is not so good for the grass – there's a roof but it's only used when absolutely necessary
oh, I'm in such a serious mood
