Agassi, Graf, Clijsters and Henman to play first matches under new roof at Wimbledon

Andre Agassi, Steffi Graf, Kim Clijsters and Tim Henman will return to the All England Club in May to try out the playing conditions under the new Centre Court roof.

Agassi and his wife, Graff, will join Clijsters and Henman for a series of exhibition matches on May 17.

The event is designed to test the new roof and air management system with live matches in front of a capacity crowd of 15,000.
The new sliding roof will help alleviate Wimbledon’s perennial rain delays.

The program will feature a men’s singles, a women’s singles and a mixed doubles match.
