Not only is the complexity of the retractable roof over Arthur Ashe Stadium impressive, so are the numbers! Each of the roof's two retractable panels weigh one million pounds and move at a rate of 25 feet per second, resulting in a closed roof in about 7 minutes. The roof's total size is the equivalent to the surface area of 17 Olympic sized swimming pools and at it's highest point, Arthur Ashe Stadium is now 55 feet taller than the Statue of Liberty.
