After three days of dry weather, showers caused the first rain delay at the championships on Thursday and organizers decided to shut the retractable roof over the fabled court, with last year's runner-up Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland leading Mathilde Johansson of France 6-1, 4-2.
While damp play continued on some other courts, the roof took to Twitter and boasted about the perfectly dry conditions inside.
Don't worry about the rain everyone, I've got it covered. Just sit back and enjoy the tennis... #protectiveroof

The retractable roof was installed on Centre Court in 2009, to help alleviate the perennial rain delays that often plague the tournament.
But nobody likes a braggart.
