Louis Armstrong has a Roof!

Every time I return to Billie Jean King National Tennis Center I can admire something new.

The US Open grounds underwent a $600 million renovation project and Louis Armstrong Stadium was the last piece to finish.

Now America’s most impressive tennis grounds have two roofed stadiums.

Arthur Ashe Stadium added its roof in 2016 and now the new Louis Armstrong, named after Queen’s famous jazz musician, also has one.

What a treat for fans who have come to enjoy tennis. Not only will they still get to watch matches when it’s pouring but most will love the shade when the heat is on.

The 95,500 square-foot roof and the upper deck provide plenty of shade for the lower deck. 

Andy Murray practiced his target serving here Sunday in preparation for his match with Australia’s James Duckworth Monday.

Every time he hit a ball can several thousand spectators went wild!
