Wimbledon's new Centre Court roof has been brought into action for the first time at the grass-court tournament.

Rain interrupted the second set of the women's fourth-round match involving top seed Dinara Safina and former champion Amelie Mauresmo on Monday.

Reported to have cost £80m, the roof was not used during the first week of Wimbledon due to the good weather.

But after taking advice on the weather prospects, officials decided the roof should be closed.

Federer makes it to his 21st consecutive Grand Slam final. That must be a record. Would be interesting to  see if Graf or Navratilova ever did anything like that.
