If it isn't cooler tomorrow, I'm kind of thinking Caro should tank her doubles match. I'd prefer her to limit her on court time in these hot conditions so as to save energy for singles.
Me too, but it really wouldn't be fair against Peer. I think that if someone commits to play doubles, they have to do their best, even though it means they're going to be tired as hell for their singles match. If they know their body can't handle playing that many matches, they shouldn't have chosen to play doubles in the first place.
Caro-Dokic is going to be very interesting. Fortunately Eurosport Player has pretty much all matches from the main courts on demand, so I'll get to re-live it even if I miss it. I really think those of you guys who can watch it (I'm not sure if it's only for Europe?) should buy it, just during the AO.
I think Chaky is a better matchup for Caro than Dokic. Also, I'm not sure she will handle a primetime match that well. She lost to Vesnina in a night match. Plus a match in the day probably won't have as much of a crowd for Dokic to feed off of.

Dokic was mentally very shaky against Anna C. Hopefully Caro will not offer 50 UE and 16 DF to help her. As for the night match - got to learn sooner or later. Surely not the last time she will play a local favorite on the central court...
