Wimbledon roof = fewer upsets?

as most of u guys are aware by now, the roof in in wimbledon is now installed ...but just like hawk-eye its only in place for centre court only....

does this mean that lower ranked players will have the added disadvantage of not finishing their matches on time(.e. fatigue) while rafa/roger et al are rested, resulting in fewer upset?


what's ur take?

Definitely.

As with Hawk-eye, a roof only on one court (or a couple of courts) mean that top players will always be at an advantage.

Therefore, I'm against both things.

Actually, with the roof he would have gotten spanked in straights.:wavey: Anyways, don't waste valuable time with what ifs, you are better of trolling somewhere else.

Fakertard, all players should have the same opportunities. It's a sport, not Faker Family's cheating ho-down.

Fixed.

Wow, you're very smart.

Compared to zebras.

A roof can't fix bottom of the net backhands mate.

The roof is a good solution especially during the second week when there are few matches and we won`t see rain breaks during the semis or finals.
Regarding the first week the favourites will have the advantage that they will play their first match on time.The problem will be if it rains during the first week then the top seeds might play one day and wait a couple of days until their lower ranked opponents will finish their matches on the outer courts.
I understand some matches will be rescheduled for the center court but i doubt they can put that many matches on only one court.
It`s almost impossible to see two weeks without rain so hopefully it will rain during the second week
