Clips of his match are being shown. They said it reached 142F on the
court and he retired because of it.

That's not the temperature the players feel. The surface temperature is a
meaningless "Wow. That's hot!" figure that people should stop quoting.

Conditions for Djokovic/Roddick were not extreme for most of the match - around
30 C air temeprature or less. Only towards the end did it get up to about the
mid-30s.

Come on, this is Djokovic we're talking about here. I think you are being a
little extreme as Roddick looked just fine out there. You're probably just
mad because you lost some money.

Haven't you heard? Groundie uses a magical bookmaker where he makes money
regardless of the outcome.

Well, that is ridiculous heat, at the upper limit of what the human body can
tolerate for an extended period. Maybe when a player dies on court from heat
exhaustion, or a few people in the crowd collapse they might start closing
the roof.

I really don't know how hot is/was it, but if the heat was the deciesive
factor in losses Murray/Djokovic suffered that's certainly bad.

Fitness should be an issue, but tolerance to the extreme conditions
shouldn't.
