Wimbledon roof has its own Twitter account

Its seems like everyone has a Twitter account these days and that includes the Wimbledon Roof over Centre Court.

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.

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.
