See thisislondon.co.uk/lite F OR once lets celebrate a brilliant innovation. The All England Club at Wimbledon has spent its money well on the retractable new roof for Centre Court. At last, no more worries about rain interruptions for headline matches, and Andy Murray playing under lights well into Monday night to secure a place in todays quarter- final instantly justified the change. It was great drama -- in the old days the match might have been spoilt by being stopped until the next day. Mark, Sutton I nEvER thought Id be watching tennis so late! Twenty20 has reinvigorated cricket with a touch of showbiz, and the new roof adds a similar touch of 21st-century excitement. James Z, E11 WhAT is it about sport that makes it instantly more exciting under lights? The game on Monday was absolutely enthralling. And the BBC must be pleased as well, with ratings of 12.6million on a weekday evening! Beth, London My fAvOuRITE thing about the roof is the view at night. The panoramic sight of London with Centre Court shining just like a light bulb in front was a stunning sight. It made me feel very proud to be a Londoner! Jade, Bayswater I EXPECT that within a year or two well find it hard to remember a time before the Centre Court roof was there. And just a little while after that all the tennis traditional- ists will be celebrating it as a vital part of Wimbledons heritage. Weisdorf, London WIMBLEdOn is supposed to be an open-air event. Before the roof the match might not have ended on the same evening, but playing on to the following day is all part of a chal- lenging Grand Slam tournament. Paul, Sutton ThE roof makes Centre Court sound like a school sports hall. Wimbledon is no longer the genteel tournament of old. It is brash and tacky. fred Perry will be spinning in his grave. Luke Hawthorn, TN24 ARSEnAL fans will now be hoping for a roof at the Emirates Stadium. Then there might be some atmosphere! Rob, London Textpoll Q: Should railways be renationalised?
