Does anybody know if there is a new Centre Court in Rome this year?

Last year they weren'nt using the old Centre Court as a new one was being built, but I've read it didn't get planning permission so not sure if there is a new one or not.

I thought the court they used at Rome last year was the same one as normal, except with more seats? :confused:

The main court last year is usually the 2nd court, and had added seats. Guess it will be this year as well then if new one not ready.

Why is Rome centre court not showing up on live scores? The schedule of play suggests they should have started long before now, yet it's only the other courts that are on live scores.

Clydey, today is an exho day to raise money for leukemia in memory of Luzzi.

Oh, I see. That'll explain the weird times displayed for each match, as though they were only going to last an hour each.

Cheers for clarifying.

Andy won 6-3.

Most amusing exho result - Daniele Bracciali d. Tommy Robredo 61 :haha:

Closely followed by Filippo Volandri d. Marat Safin 64 :lol:

How fast is the Rome center court in comparison to other clay tournaments?

Probably the fastest court though we haven't seen Madrid yet.

RG are the fastest clay courts.

RG is slower than Rome. Rome plays close to the speed of a hard court when dry. All clay plays slow when it is wet though.
