Wimbledon reveals retractable roof

A new retractable roof was unveiled over Wimbledon’s No 1 court ahead of this summer’s competition. The new roof cost GBP 70 million and is identical to the one that has covered Centre Court since 2009.
The roof has been constructed by British company Sir Robert McAlpine over the course of three years.

A test event was held on May 19 with the roof to be used officially for the first time.
