Totally agree to this. When she is off (her normal state since the UO) her confidence sinks and everything becomes a bother to her.

Re: Australian heat wave.

Sydney is looking at 37 on Tues with around 40-42 out west (I am sure the Sydney International is closer to western Sydney than the CBD)

Definitely! It's pretty much always hotter at Olympic Park when compared to the CBD.

Re: Australian heat wave.

Since the best players will be playing on the main courts under the roof with a/c, likely the heat is not going to affect them. However, the lower ranked players are going to have a problem, unless their playing on the main courts.

Re: Australian heat wave.

Australian summers are normally hot and most years Melbourne will see a few hot days in the weeks before the Australian Open.

I am incline to think the heat wont have much effect on the top players, it will impact more on players that like long rallies like Caro.

I may be wrong but I recall the venue is out towards Parramatta which is a western suburb.

The old White City club was in the inner southern suburbs, Sydney tends to be more humid than Melbourne
