Should the centre court at Wimbledon be called "Roger Federer Arena"?

I mean after his retirement of course.
The man won less titles than Sampras (although soon this may very well not be the case anymore), but still - his influence on tennis was incomparable to any other man who ever stepped onto a tennis court.
IMO, might be a nice symbolic gesture when he retires.
What do you think?

It will never change. Wimbledon like their simplicity and ''Centre Court'' is just a perfect name for the court.

Probably right. But I'd like to know if you think they SHOULD - not WOULD.

If there was a British GOAT, Wimby's Centre Court could be named after him. But not after Fed.

How about renaming Philippe Chatrier? Rafael Nadal Arena? That's‎ after Nadal winning his 7th RG title.

"Dijana Djokovic Arena" imo
