Tsonga's got a legitimate shot at taking out Nadal, he's done it before. With that said, I'd rather see Roddick and Federer out before the finals

Yeah he did, 3 set win. I couldn't stay up to watch it though.

Djokovic/Roddick should be on around 8pm tonight, and Federer/Del Potro at 2-2:30 (depending on when Dokic/Safina end). Too bad Federer's match is so late, it should be a really good one

I took a 3 hour nap after school so my internal clock should be screwed up enough that I can watch this.


I'm surprised Murray lost. I wish I watched that match now, sounds hella competitive.

I watched the first set of Tsonga/Blake's match last night, then decided to call it a night.

Federer for me, Nadal is much too cocky for my liking. I also loove Federer's white coat he wears.

It also helps that I'm part Swiss, was a Hingis fan back then.

Centrecourt shouldn't be affected, but the scheduling this week is going to get very haphazard given the weather and outside courts being unplayable in the afternoons.

It says 58 degrees Celsius... My God it's amazing that people can even play tennis in that heat, let alone WATCH it, just sitting there getting roasted...

Djokovic is in trouble. The weather's getting to him, and Roddick's taking control... Sets are tied, but Roddick leads the 3rd set 4-2...

I'm really curious about their "extreme heat" policy.. At what point does it come in play? 58 degrees, and they still don't close the roof

I think they closed it for one of the Women's matches, but yeah, I wonder at what point they decide to close it. It might be up to the umpire person, I heard he/she can decide to even hold off the match if it gets too extreme...

I can't recall her name, but the girl playing against Serena Williams earlier today (yesterday?) had to withdraw because she was sick, and that paired with the heat was just too much for her to take... It's too bad.

Anyways I think Imma take a nap so I can watch Feds and Del Potro play.

That's it, Djokovic retired at 2-1 down in the 4th set.

They can close the roof at the end of a set, and hold off the match if it's dangerous. And yeah, it's up to the tournament referee (is that the chair umpire?). Azarenka was just hard to watch, she looked so sick out there

Wow! Over 60 degrees celsius! That is insane. Roddick handled the heat like a champ! I think he has a legitamite shot at this! He is looking great.

Awesome tournament so far! Lots of big name stars still in it! Can't wait!!

It's really too bad... It started off being such a close match and everything too.

God damn it, the Dokic match was taking too long and I couldn't stay awake for the Federer match... But he won, 6-3, 6-0, 6-0. Looks like it was a cakewalk.

No Tournament referee is not the Chair umpire, chair umpire only runs the match, there is a supervisor who oversees the entire tournament.

A possible rematch from last year's semis.

Also, Elena Dementieva is super cute.

strewth...


The 'air' temperature only reached 37 in melbourne yesterday. Yes thats very uncomfortable and causing a few retirements, but its a dry heat, so you still get the natural cooling effect of sweating. They report the 'court temperature' which only alarms people and dosen't really serve any purpose. Hell everyone knows the earth surface can get hot to touch in summer, dosen't make it entirely unlivable up at head height.

All being said 41 degrees today, and shouldn't be too many outside games played. Should cause chaos with doubles, juniors etc matches.


All credit to Jelana Dokic. A qualifier making the semis and pushing #3 all the way. An almighty effort and a really heads up to the soft c**k players walking off when they feel they can't win anymore. Apologies to those obviously distressed by the heat.

Got to 43 degress today, same predicted for Thursday and Friday. Saturday it backs off to 35. Smashing records for consecutive hottest days in Melbourne.

Power outages, rail commuter chaos (lines buckelling) & bushfires expected.

Any global warming naysayers have anything to say?

Think of it this way, the sun you see in west in the afternoon, is the same we are looking at in the east in the morning. But you are behind a day. So I listen to a 7pm Canuck Game played on a Tuesday, I start listening on wednesday at lunch time (subject to summer times).

So a tennis game here tonight Wednesday at 7pm, I know its Tuesday in Vancouver and the sun is long down, so around midnightish. The sun goes past you and comes to us, not really that much later.

Long distance between countries but not that far 'sun wise', eg longitude.
