Wimbledon 2009

  Rain, rain, go away, come again … never! There’s a new retractable roof over Centre Court. It doesn’t promise a total end to the weather delays that plague this hallowed tennis championship — it takes 10 minutes to close the roof and up to 30 minutes postshower before play can resume — but at least spectators in the 15,000-seat stadium will stay pretty dry. And the roof, designed by Kansas City, Missouri — based Populous, also means better growing conditions for the lushest of lawns. — ACL
