    is the roof made of transparent material ie. if there is no rain, can the matches be played in sun light or do the stadium flood lights needs to be on

    The roof is open unless it rains... at which point they close it.

    I've seen it on several videos and yes I think it's materials are transparent.

    Answering the bold statement:

    Why do you want to close the roof when there's no rain at all? The purpose why Wimbledon installed the roof is due to rain delays.

    once the roof has been closed due to rain, even after the rain stops, the matches will be completed with the roof on. so does it need flood lights to complete the matches or will the sun light suffice.
