Seems like half of Australia is in fire,temps going up nest week. Lots of flying foxes are dying and falling to earth.This will be a tough one.Thank goodness Andy does not have any breathing problems.
They're going UP!!!
Meanwhile frost, icy conditions and snow are forecast for the UK. Think I'd prefer the latter though. My heart goes out to all the people who've lost their homes, and in some cases their lives, in these fires. They can strike with frightening rapidity, if what we're hearing on the news is correct.
It seems a bit cruel to me to expect players to attempt five-setters in these conditions, given that the temp inside the arenas will be higher. I know they close the roof when it rises above 36C, but that's only to keep the sun out.
I really don't know how well Andy and Nole will cope since neither are too happy about long spells in the heat, although it doesn't seem to trouble Fed, maybe because he's part South African and also spends a lot of time in Dubai.
On another matter - it's strange but for the first time I'm actually feeling the absence of Nadal ...
