Yeah, anybody here feel sorry for Djoker that they started closing
the roof just after he lost?

Extreme Heat Policy
The Australian Open Extreme Heat Policy (EHP) will be applied at the
Referee=92s discretion and may be altered at any time.

At the Referee=92s discretion, when the Wet Bulb Globe Temperature only
(WBGT) 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) and
the WBGT temperature is equal to or exceeds the pre determined
threshold, 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.

A 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=92s 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.

***************************************************************************=
*****************************************
I guess the WBGT didn't get high enough in the men's match the day
before. The Extreme Heat Policy today was called for all courts. Why
Novak can't last more than an hour and a half against top players
without failing is not a general heat issue for other competitors.

C'mon, temp was considerably higher for Serena's match than it was for
Chokervic's

they closed it for both players, but it probably won't matter. serena's
form is clearly inferior.

serena will battle hard (she always does) but kuz will win in straight sets.

Hello Guy:

Sure..I will bet you that if you are wrong then you must write that I
was correct that Serena would be the 2008 AO Champion. She is two or
three sets away. Closer than most.

Peace,

Famous

It's about TV ratings. They needed an American to prevent all Russian
final for women. Serena needed some air conditioning and they helped
her by closing the roof.
Same with men. Brad Gilbert said before the match that Roddick was
lobbying to keep the roof open. The very last moment that Novak
retired the temp clock was 142 degrees.

Today Kuzzy was winning and they decided to close the roof to help
Serena along. When they closed it, the temp was 136. One announcer
then said, Djokovic will probably complain about the roof closing for
the Serena match. Shriver and Carillo chime in=85=94but it was much hotter
today.=94 BS

And I predict she won't be the 2008 AO Champion.
Care to make a bet on that?

Hello Stephen:

You wrote a perfect analysis of Ms. Williams history as an athelete. I
wonder why some in this newsgroup calls her "fat?" The woman has
spent much time in the gym cross-training, lifting weights, and making
sure her cardio is in shape for long match.

Serena is in fine shape, and I predict she will be the 2008 AO
Champion.

serena is an amazing battler and has a history of coming back from way
down to win matches, so she probably has confidence in her ability to do so.

this one ain't over yet, though.
