The paper reports that the club chiefs have decided to build a cover over the 11,500-seat Number One Court, with an official announcement expected next month.
Work will start on the roof after the end of this year's championship in July - and construction will be much easier this time round that when the famous Centre Court had its cover installed in 2009.
"Unlike Centre Court, the secondary arena was designed to be ‘roof-ready’ when it was built in 1997, so the associated costs and logistical demands, while high, will not be as severe as the huge construction completed in 2009 to cover its iconic big brother," the paper reports.
That's probably just as well: the roof over Centre Court cost a reportedly whopping £150 million to build, with things like state-of-the-art air conditioning to protect the grass and the construction of a new electricity sub-station to handle the demands pushing costs to stratospheric levels.
The paper suggests that the new move is more about making money than spending it, pointing out that, "a covered Court No 1 will be another huge step forward for the tournament and guarantee two sets of matches for television, and more than 27,000 spectators, whatever the weather."
French Open and US Open organisers would love to say the same thing: local residents recently blocked Roland Garros's attempts to revamp the venue with a new roofed arena, while the vertiginous Arthur Ashe stadium at Flushing Meadows - which has seen Monday finishes for the past four years - is simply too big and the land around too cramped for a roof to be installed.
