Wimbledon is planning to add a retractable roof next year.

After today, one can only wonder when or if all other Grand Slam events will follow suit. There's really no good reason for fans, especially those who've bought tickets, to have to endure this kind of delay.

It's also bad for players, particularly those like Rafael Nadal, who barely even got to start playing today. Given Nadal's overtly-physical style of play, he may require more recovery time in between matches than Roger Federer or Novak Djokovic.

Eventually the fans/players will demand a roof at Roland Garros. Why don't they think proactively and start planning it now?
