I wonder how many fans passed out before the dome was closed?

Why do we want the roof closed now?? you haven't stop complaining about the Australian open, saying how shit it is etc etc..

Anyway since Serena didn't think it was that hot the other day (4th rd match) I don't think she would want the roof closed for the final tomorrow..

I mean it is only going to be 42C, yeah only 42, so I think she would rather suffer out in the heat tomorrow, then play indoors, don't you think??
If only we didn't have a roof hey??

It was getting pretty stupid not to utilize that closed roof.

They are only going by rules set in place, it aren't an indoor tournament. The roof hasn't been closed until today, becuase there hasn't been any rain and becuase it hasn't been quite hot enough until today..
For saturday and Sunday it will more than likely be closed too..

BTW they have changed the weather to 40C for tomorrow, ahh not quite as hot now, perhaps the roof won't be closed after all ;)
