Australian heat wave.

Record breaking temperatures are expected to hit the country in the coming days and weeks.

Which players will handle it best and who will melt under the unforgiving Australian sun?

Re: Australian heat wave.

Serena plays well in heat. Kerber seems to do well too. Li is a home player. Petra probably won't play so well. Sharapova is hit and miss. Errani, meh. Stosur probably doesn't play her best in heat. Caroline forget going very far the way she's playing now let alone in 40C.

Vika is the big question.

Vika doesn't do well in the heat it seems.

Re: Australian heat wave.

At least Stosur has an advantage in the fitness stakes.

Daniela Hantuchova.

Casey Dellacqua, Jelena Jankovic, Anna-Lena Groenefeld,
Jelena Dokic, Mirjana Lucic, Sara Tomic, Sloane Stephens
Melanie Oudin, Kaia Kanepi, Alison Riske

No, but Serena, Vika, Masha and Sam will play all their matches (in case of Stosur - 1st Round match) on Rod Laver Arena or Hisense Arena. For me it's unfair that they will have better conditions than other players on Show Courts...

In 2015 we will have 3 courts with the roof
