Roof at Roland-Garros next year...

smash hit

Perfect news for Djokovic. Terrible news for Nadal.
I don’t know what effect it will have on the conditions, but really, it’s time. If Nadal can’t prove his clay GOAT status under the roof, then I guess someone else deserves the title next year. I’m sure he will though.
Nadal and Djokovic have played to my knowledge, one match on clay, under a roof. Hamburg 2008, the result determined the number two ranking position. Nadal won 7-5, 2-6, 6-2.

Ditto!
For the love of god thiem is jacking his azz at the french!
Yes, but we all know why he lost in 2017. He was simply atrocious this year because of his elbow injury and huge lack of confidence. And this year, the windy conditions affected him greatly. Under normal conditions, that wouldn’t be a beatdown like in 2016 because Thiem obviously plays much better now but he would just take a set off Djokovic, I think.

Well now it's fair. With this change no one can get screwed now, especially Djokovic who every year is getting screwed by scheduling and weather. Nadal better watch out.

Finally the best slam is moving with the times.
Can only be a good thing, as too many people rely on conditions to beat the KOC.
