I guess "only her hairdresser will know" for sure as the saying
goes. :)
In any event, Serena should count her lucky stars from what I saw of
the match.
But she's got another Russian coming at her the next round...

Azarenka isn't Russian.

It's hot there, and she is playing like Berdych yesterday, over-powering
everyball and running like crazy non-stop.
Of course she had to pay the price, she started to lose her balance while
standing, this is the way it looked, she retired.

I honestly think she got very tired but she was acting on court to retire
because she knew she had nothing left to continue the match.

She withdrew from a tourney last week with-- you guessed it-- "a virus".

Got sick to her stomach today in the second set, went off-court to be
treated and came back, but was staggering in circles between points,
basically, really alarming, since it really looked like she was in danger
of an uncontrolled fall-injury . . . .

Finally had to give up.

Too bad: We can safely assume she felt OK in the first set, when she was
kicking Serena around pretty nicely.

serena was playing dreadful - anyone would have kicked her around.

heck, even with whatshername "staggering around in circles" between
points, serena never really took firm control of the second set.

The AO is surely a "killer" of a grand slam. Only a matter of time
until a player drops dead on court during a match. Almost happened
today.

And, for what ? Cheapskate Aussies and their School Holidays !

What utter horseshit! The max temp in Melbourne today was a very
comfortable 24 degrees Celsius.
The only way the weather would've affected Aza would've been if she couldn't
get warm enough!

It IS forecast to be very hot for the next five days - tomorrow C38 and then
four consecutive days of
C40 plus - BUT today was very comfortable.

Azarenka was sick before the match, but decided to give it a shot.
But the next few days are going to be unreasonably hot. Most of the week
over 40C! That is very unusual, no doubt a sign of climate change. We do
have the hot days, but not usually a run of *five days*!
They may cancel the junior competition, and just play in the two covered
arenas. I have no idea why they close the HiSense arena after the second
Monday, but I suspect it may be brought into play because it can be
closed.

It was a pretty early finish today with Jie Zheng injuring her hand in a
fall, and Azarenka having to forfeit. Murray's match was still going in
the fifth set when I got home though. But the outside courts were pretty
much finished. Azarenka was supposed to be in a doubles on the Margaret
Court Arena after her singles, so that was forfeited too.

I would tell them in no uncertain terms to "move it or lose it".
