    There's a short snippet in the British Daily Mail today saying RG will have a new centre court and roof by 2014 - any French based posters can confirm this is the case?

    Yup, it's definitely the case. It's all over the news actually. I'm not French, but it was mentioned on TV yesterday during the broadcast as well.

    I seem to recall 2011 as well. Why would they need four years to get a roof?
