In a few years, the U.S. Open will no longer be the most fogeyish Grand Slam. The USTA announced this morning that it will build a long-sought retractable roof over Arthur Ashe Stadium. How exactly they plan to do that—Ashe was built over a landfill and previous studies seemed to indicate a roof was structurally impossible—should be sorta answered tomorrow morning at a press conference. The Open has had five consecutive Monday men's finals due to rain. Bloomberg reports the roof could be in place as soon as 2016.
