Artur Ashe is a lot bigger than all other Slam arenas and a roof would too heavy for the rather soft ground below the stadium. Building a roof for Louis Armstrong has been ruled out because of ticket holder issues, you sell 20,000 tickets for an AA match, you cannot really move it to LA that only takes half. Of course, AO had a roof for Vodafone/Hisense before they got a roof for Rod Laver so I don't consider that excuse valid.
