"Lost" photos of Arthur Ashe Stadium with a roof

With all the recent talk of the USTA setting up a strategic vision to renovate the US Open facilities, including relocating Grandstand, re-doing Armstrong, creating an elevated viewing platform over the practice courts, nothing speaks more greatly than the lack of a vision for a roof over Ashe.

The USTA will spend another $500 million to NOT put a roof. However, the same architects who are doing the renovation, Rossetti Architects, had a vision with Ashe stadium with a roof. So what happened??

Check out this Tennis Grandstand article with nore of these "lost" photos, one is below. Ashe looks pretty great with a roof ....

USO should be demoted for its rank stupidity, Move the slam to somewhere else in protest.

Murray wins Wimbledon 2016 after Djokovic is blue shelled by Querrey. Thanks Querrey!
