AO 2013 R1: Murray [3] vs Haase

Quote



Surely they'll close the roofs on RL and Hisense?
I'm really looking forward to hearing and seeing you guys. Smile

You would assume so, however I believe when it has been mid-30's in the past they have kept the roof open Frown

I thought 36 was the automatic cut-off point, but I see that it's at the Referee's discretion.

In fact, for anyone who's interested -

Extreme Heat Policy

The Australian Open Extreme Heat Policy (EHP) will be applied at the Referee's discretion and may be altered at any time.

At the Referee's discretion, when the Wet Bulb Globe Temperature (WBGT) [a composite temperature used to estimate the effect of temperature, humidity, and solar radiation on humans] only is equal to or above the pre-determined threshold, the Referee may suspend the commencement of any further matches on outside courts.

Any matches currently in progress will continue until the end of the current set. At the completion of the set, play will be suspended.

Where play in any match commences outdoors (or with a roof open) at the Referee's Discretion, the match will continue until the completion of the set. At the end of the set, a decision may be made by the Referee to close the roof for the remainder of the match and the following matches, when the EHP is still in effect.

The roof will only be closed because of extreme heat if a decision has been made by the Referee to suspend the completion or commencement of matches on the outdoor courts.

Supplement for women's singles and junior singles only; to allow a 10 minute break between the second and third sets when a WBGT reading of 28 has been recorded prior to the calling of the match by Tournament Control. Readings are continually made throughout the day.

The 10 minute break will not apply between the second and third sets, if play had previously been suspended after the first set due to the EHP

Not really.  I don't like very hot weather, and I've experienced it abroad, so know what it feels like.  It's not for me, thanks - but then I'm fair-haired and fair-skinned, so maybe that's why.

Wouldn't mind some of your sunshine though.  We had the wettest summer on record in the UK, and the winter isn't much better!

No as in I would love 25C to be considered hot where I am... I much prefer the colder weather!

However, colder weather here is probably a whole lot different to cold weather where you are!

Yeah, white singlets with black lettering!

Today was about 24 degrees, with the next few to be mid-late 20s. Thursday is forecast to be 39 though!! WAY too hot!!

Have been to the qualifiers the past 3 days & the sun has well & truly taken its toll. Very sunburnt at the moment.

Holy crap! That's the day I arrive and when day 2 winners will play again and the day we only have ground passes. fainting Tees look good though.
