200 million dollars won't be much in a few years the way the US economy is going. Then some workers from China can come there and build it cheap. Or better up move the slam to China and they can have a fancier arena costing a few billions with a roof and automatic ass scratchers built into the chairs.

Agreed, simple solution is to scratch the US Open and replace it with the China Open, where all courts would be equipped with these ass roofs.

A roof over Ashe would be a logistical nightmare due to the insane size of the stadium. I believe they could put one over Armstrong and the grandstand easily though. That would make for some intimate finals and semi-finals.

a big ass roof over such a big ass stadium would mean they'd have to rename the stadium to ... arthur's ass...

John McEnroe, for all his faults, argued long and hard with the USTA in the planning stage that Ashe should be built with a retractable roof, but no one would listen.
:facepalm:

Sure, they could put roofs over Armstrong and Grandstand easily enough, but the USO would lose massive $$$ in refunded tickets as can't get the colossal number of ticket holders into either. The USTA for financial reasons would rather reschedule or start late on the money-making stadium.

The problem would be what ticket holders would have the right to see the matches moved from Ashe to a smaller roofed court.

That’s no small problem.
