There are a lot of players at the French Open who feel that it was about time Roland Garros got some lights!
Tournament director Gilbert Ysern says change isn’t coming until 2017, when a retractable roof and lights are slated to be installed at the main stadium at Roland Garros.
“It’s a topic that is a bit sensitive,” Ysern said in a telephone interview Monday. “We have a complex that has been approved for competition during the day, not at night. We are not allowed to play at night. That’s what the law says.”
