An Epic Wimbledon Final Gives Way to Plans for a Grand Future

WIMBLEDON, England — On Sunday evening, the Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic stood on Centre Court after beating Roger Federer and made it clear that his long-term plan was to keep improving and adding to his legacy.

On Monday afternoon, Richard Lewis, the tournament’s chief executive, stood in front of an aerial photograph and made it clear that Wimbledon had a similar long-term plan of its own.

The All England Club, which owns and operates tennis’s oldest Grand Slam tournament, continues to expand. The most visible addition this year was the retractable roof on No. 1 Court, giving Wimbledon a weatherproof complement to Centre Court, which was equipped with a roof in 2009.
