Tickets for enclosed Wimbledon sell out in five minutes

10:05 am on 13 March 2009

Tickets for the first match to be played under the roof at Wimbledon's centre court sold out five minutes after going on sale.

Husband-and-wife team Andre Agassi and Steffi Graf, both former Wimbledon champions, will be the star attractions when the roof is officially opened on May the 17th.

Kim Clijsters and recently-retired Brit Tim Henman will also play in the Centre Court event, designed to test the new roof and air management system in front of a 15,000 crowd ahead of this year's championships.
