Now that the LTA has finished overhauling its coaching team with the addition of Paul Annacone and Brad Gilbert, they begin their focus on its tennis facilities.

While costs of the new facility remain top secret, reports floating in the press hint at 40 million pounds (78 million dollars), a price tag which also includes the new national training ground.

No price is being revealed for the biggest overhaul to Wimbledon’s showcase court either but it is thought that 80 million might not be far off the mark. By 2009, a much-needed retractable roof should be in place.

Wimbledon has a full explanation of its plans on its website.
