Test match sells out in five minutes
WIMBLEDON, England -- Tickets for the exhibition matches under Wimbledon's new Centre Court roof have sold out in five minutes.
The May 17 event features former Wimbledon champions Andre Agassi and Steffi Graf, as well as Kim Clijsters and Tim Henman. There will be men's and women's singles matches and a mixed doubles match.
The event is dubbed "A Centre Court Celebration" and is designed to test the new roof and ventilation system with live matches in front of a capacity crowd.
This year's Wimbledon will be held June 22-July 5.
