In 20th century Wimbledon is broadly considered to be the leading tennis tournament in the world and the main concern of Club is to maintain its leadership. In 1993 a long term plan was created to improve the quality of the Championship matches to attract the more spectators, players, officials and neighbors. Plan was divided into three phases.
Phase 1 of the plan was accomplished for the 1997 Wimbledon championships and involved building the new No. 1 Court in Aorangi Park, a broadcast centre, two extra grass courts and a tunnel under the hill linking Church Road and Somerset Road.
Phase 2 involved the elimination of the old No. 1 Court complex to make way for the new Millennium Building, providing wide facilities for player’s media and members, and the extension of the West Stand of the Centre Court with 728 extra seats.
Phase 3 has been fulfilled with the construction of an entrance building club staff housing, museum and bank and ticket office. The new retractable roof was built in 2009 during the championship, the first time in a long time that the rain does not stop play center court. In 2009 new 4,000-seat 2 Yard was added the house on the site of the old No. 13 Court Championship. The new 2000-seat No. 3 Court was built on the site of the old No. 2 and No. 3, the Court Club tested the new roof, and the event is called Centre Court Celebration on Sunday, 17 May 2009, exhibition matches involving Andre Agassi is shown, Steffi Graf, Kim Clijsters and Tim Henman.
Take the championship game under the umbrella in the women's singles fourth round match Dinara Safina and Amelie Mauresmo was completed. The first meeting, which was in their entirety under the new roof, was played on 29 June 2009. The third round of Wimbledon Centre Court is finished on 2012 Championships. 2012 men's singles final on 8 July 2012 between Roger Federer and Murray was the first finalist in the attic, which is played activated during the third set.
