Re: Australian heat wave.

There better not be any 40C+ days to come. Seems like it has cooled down, and it isn't expected to go over 35C for the next week, with most days under 30C.

Yesterday was disgusting with the northerly winds and the heat. Can't imagine playing or watching tennis in that.

Recall Svetlana owning Serena before they unfairly decided to shut the roof. I wouldn't say she was handling the conditions too well.

Re: Australian heat wave.

Temperatures differ from year to year. Serena may have been in one of those extremely hot years.

I remember MashaS struggling real bad with it one year @ AO. It was that year she was pushed to 3 sets by Pin.

The Aussie makes a great point. Fans will be immensely effected by it. The players have to practice outside. 30C is harsh. I've heard 50C (122F) this year summer (SBS Radio). Not sure about Melbourne though...

In 2015 we will have 3 courts with the roof

Re: Australian heat wave.

So very odd to see Hobart having a much hotter day than the rest of Australia. Hobart is like the Alaska of Australia. I mean yesterday was the hottest day in Hobart in like 130 something years. So weird to go from 22-23C to 41-42C in a few days.

Not so sure.
If the heat wave comes early in the tournament(first few days of the 1st week), not even all top players will be guaranteed to play under the roof

Re: Australian heat wave.

There is a difference between hot temperatures and a heat wave. A real heat wave hasn't happened yet (not for a few years), this comes from northerly winds (if you live in Vic) and the shade doesn't help at all because the whole atmosphere is hot. If you actually go outside during a heat wave, you won't be able to breathe properly yet alone play a tennis match.

Re: Australian heat wave.

Hotter temperatures = faster courts = better for the game.

How about the players? Do they factor in your equation?

Remember they are the ones responsible for performance that will produce better matches.
