Default "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.
