That's going to help Rog. What about wind?

Re: 88 degrees tomorrow?

Shouldn't be much of a factor, then. I doubt the weather will make that much of a difference, especially if they're going to bust the hoses out.

Re: 88 degrees tomorrow?

88 degrees means Nadal's ball will bounce very high . The hot makes the balls bounce higher and this is positive for Nadal's topspin.

Last year Nadal-Gasquet it was a very hot day and Richard still has nightmares with those bounces.

Re: 88 degrees tomorrow?

I'm not sure the heat will favour Federer. Don't forget that Nadal is from Mallorca, I assume he loves scorching heat.

Anyway, I can confirm that it will be very very hot on court. It's only 10.30 AM and heat is already barely standable in Paris...AO weather is upon us

Re: 88 degrees tomorrow?

they are playing in the same court under the same condition.....
from previous posts:
ball bounce higher but speed is faster...
so adv neutralised, no?

also,

federer is not someone who just come out from swiss ice mountain

i dont think high temperature affects him...

Both players will be happy with the conditions because Roger wants a fast court for his playstyle and Rafa prefers fast claycourts to slow claycourts and also likes a lot the sun because helps him to create more topspin, so both players won't compalin about conditions.

Last year his meeting in semis was completely different because it was a cloudy-rainy day , heavy court and balls . Nadal doesn't like to play with that weather because he can't create a lot of topsin and doesn't like the heavy balls either .

Good stuff. It helps Rafa, no doubt about it.

If anyone saw yesterday the women's final you could see how high the balls were bouncing up. With Rafa's topspin it'll be tiring on Fed's backhand to keep having to hit balls miles above his head

Re: 88 degrees tomorrow?

If the match is too long Roger will be the favorite since Rafa is quite tired after being on court a lot of hours . Some say he's like a energizer bunny and it's true he has a very good stamina but because of his playstyle he runs the double of his opponent in every match and that's why against Roger , a player who has a good stamina too , Nadal will never reach a fifth set less tired than Federer .

Plus we have to add the hot as a physical factor and although Nadal is a guy used to hot , sun , humidity and high temperatures because of his birthplace ( Mallorca ) , the hot will make both players to fatigue more and unlike Roger who reaches this match very rested Rafa is in the final with his energy quite diminished .

What i'm quite sure is that if Nadal wins this won't be thanks for a physical/stamina factor but mental or tennis factors.

Re: 88 degrees tomorrow?

The heat will not affect Roger, I guess. He was more than 4 hours less on court than Nadal. I think if the match gets over a longer distance it may be an advantage for Roger.

Don't think it's the hottest day - it's about the same as yesterday - temperatures are pretty much the same all over UK, France and Germany at the moment. It's pretty humid in London today though which it hasn't been before - so if that humidity is the same in Paris (we normally have very similar weather), it will make it very unpleasant for the players in a long match.

Being there I would say it's even hotter than yesterday. And the humidity is indeed very high
