Heat Stress On The ATP Tour (Retirements) ?

Hey guys

Its my second semester of uni now! I am considering many topics to complete for an essay. At the top of my list is heat stress, in relation to tennis. There are many journals of course on this topic, but very few will list players who have suffered from heat stress, so I need some examples.

I am looking for players that have retired due to heat stress, and the name of the tournament/location they retired from. Please could you list some for me?

It would be too many to list, for players who have had heat stress and carried on. So I am looking for the severe cases of heat stress


Thanks!

Stefano Pescosolido from Italy, retired against Jaime Oncins from Brazil in a Davis Cup World Group Quarterfinal match played at Maceio, Brazil, on 2-Apr-1992.

Thanks! Exactly the info I was looking for! PS If anyone has a good enough memory, please could they list the approximate tempreature. Although, I doubt its possible to remember

At 2004 in Sydney, Verkerk retired after the first set down 2-6 to Hewitt, I think I remember him saying he was dizzy and had diarrhea (haha, I don't know why he would admit to that) caused by the heat sickness.

Why only ATP?

The latest one on women's tennis I can remember is Michaella Krajicek vs Momo in 3rd round Australia Open this year.

Also Davydenko at the Aussie Open against Roddick last year. He tried wearing an ice vest on the changeover to cool down but still wound up retiring before the end.

Also Dent retiring in the Indianapolis final against Ginepri last year may have been due to heat or just being tired, either way he was barely moving even after the first set and I know it was a hot day.

Re: Heat Stress On The ATP Tour (Retirements) ?

Just remembered another one. Martin Vassallo Arguello against Ricardo Mello in Costa do Sauipe last year.

Funny how most cases of heat stress have appeared either in Australia or in Brazil.

Superb info! Also leads me to thinking about precooling, and methods of overcoming heat stress as an appendicy! Cheers mate

Cool, definitely something you can talk about.

Shotgun Blues - that's true, maybe it is players coming from cold climates and not having time to get their body used to the heat?

No retirement but Hingis vs Capriati in AO 2002. Hingis was definitely affected by the heat and losing the final.

It's the timing of the tournaments and also, the humidity in both sites is high.

Yeah definitely Brasil - there were a lot in 2004. Can't remember who exactly but there were 3-4 retirements that year early in the tournament.

There's a rule that if the temp. exceeds certain degrees, the players need 10 minutes or more break after 2 sets of tennis inside.

And of course, the ice vest.

There is no heat rule of course on the atp tour, but does anyone know the rule for the wta tour? What tempreature, and what happens when it exceeds that?
