Like I said in the Gasquet/Berlocq thread, considering how disappointing French tennis is it's fitting their slam is just as bad :shrug:

it might be for court preparations. SL is in horrible state, i cant imagine what would happen if they play there up until midnight...
i might be wrong, and they are just being lazy, but i doubt

My local court has lights and one of the four Grand Slams doesn't have lights on any of the courts? :spit: Every 250 clay event has lights. So stupid.

People talk crap about AUS Open but RG is by far the worst Grand Slam IMHO. Even tho it's played in my favorite surface where players from my country can do better. Just terrible.

Also, their new site is pure garbage. It probably cost more to design that new site than what it'd cost if they hired someone to install artificial light in the center court.

Public courts in my city, a really poor city, have lights installed there. Altho you gotta be related to Batman to play there, still...

Australian Open is amazing. They even stream their WC playoff. :lol: :bowdown:

It's simply tradition.

Wimbledon has no lights either (except for the central court, which was installed not many years ago).:)

Why do we have no final set tie-break at Slams and Davis Cup (except for the US Open)? - Tradition :)
