Plans to build a roof at Roland Garros have been mired in delays

Plans to build a roof at Roland Garros have been mired in delays caused by legal action by local residents and environmental activists.

Wimbledon, the Australian and US Opens all have stadiums with roofs, but Roland Garros will not see a roof built over its showpiece Philippe Chatrier Court until 2020 at the earliest.

The French Open is the only major without a roof over its premier show court.
The Australian Open has three retractable rooves. Wimbledon has cover over its iconic centre court while the US Open will have a roof by the start of August’s grand slam.
Djokovic has suffered at the hands of the weather in Paris in the past. In the 2012 final against Rafael Nadal, he had fought back from two sets to love down to take the third set and lead in the fourth when play was halted.
