I personally would want the US Open inside. Put it in Manhattan and put it in "The World's Most Famous Arena" See how the Garden receives tennis.
I wouldn't want to see a Slam inside - for the obviously reasons as Fee said - how on earth could you find someplace big enough that would be able to house 20 something courts??? MSG can only have two courts.
The answer to the rain problem for Wimbledon, Roland Garros, and the US Open is to get retractable roofs over the show courts.
I would like to see an indoor tournament somewhere in NYC though - don't know where - maybe when they build another stadium for Shea, they can build a sports complex too that could house 6-8 courts with a main stadium and grandstand. NYC can defnitely support more than the US Open.
