The Ashe roof is part of a larger plan to rebuild and expand other courts at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. No. 2 stadium Louis Armstrong will eventually be covered, too.
The U.S. Tennis Association plans to give the home of the U.S. Open a makeover that will cost it hundreds of millions of dollars, but does not include putting a roof on Arthur Ashe Stadium.
"Even though we're selling record tickets, is it building frustration from our fans and our broadcast partners? There's no question," Zausner said. "But if we could have had this design five years ago and knew what we know today five years ago, I'm sure we would've had a roof five years ago."
