I live in Melbourne, never trust the rumours. The forecast by the Bureau of Metereology hasn't been released for next week yet.
Even still, Petra will play on Hisense or Rod Laver, if its hotter, the roof will be closed a little to allow for more shade.
I'm not counting her out yet. I expect at least 4R at the AO. After all, this was just one match. Even Serena lost to Razzano. I know people are saying this time last year she won Hopman Cup. Well if she played this year she would've been guaranteed a final because the women's field was so weak.
