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

Roof is great. They should also put roof on court 1 and it would be even better. Some people like to complain no matter what. Every change is bad for them. There were lot of people who didnt like tiebreaker and hawk -eye. But now we even cant imagine pro tennis without it.
Only bad thing about roof is that superstars are getting even more advantage over other players. So far they enjoyed possibility to challenge line calls on big courts , now they also have firm schedule, no long rain delays. It may be not completely fair, but you cant put roof and hawk-eye on every court, so we just have to live with it.

10 minutes is not that much, so I don't understand why they are playing under the roof even when it's not raining
10 minutes? More like 40.

Thank you Nick for taking out the trash at Wimbledon!
Thank you Berdych for taking out the trash at AO!

(I kind of hope Rafa gets to play Federer under the roof so Rafa can show how invincible he is, it'd make the win much more impressive, and the loss for Federer unparallelled)

Does anyone know if a match scheduled to be play outdoors, but ends up being played entirely under a roof due to weather conditions is considered to be an indoor or an outdoor match?
