Too hot to handle

Tuesday 13 January 2009
By Helen Gilbert

Melbourne Park was a blaze of glory as players warmed up for the qualifying event which starts tomorrow. But they refuse to feel the heat and are staying focussed on the task in hand.

Blazing sunshine and mercury that tipped 36 degrees did little to deter the qualifiers training ahead of the qualifying event at Melbourne Park this week.

There was not a dry towel or body in sight as players limbered up for the competition, which sees the men’s draw start tomorrow and the women's the day after.

In fact, the sizzling temperatures - set to soar to 40 degrees tomorrow - forced qualifier Tereza Hladikova to cheekily stifle a smile as she learnt the men would be the first to contest matches in the sweltering conditions.

After a two hour training session in oppressive midday heat, the 20-year-old asked: “The boys will start tomorrow? It’s so hot, I’m happy [the girls aren’t playing]."

The Czech flew in from her home country three days ago and is slowly adjusting to the dramatic temperature change and time difference.

Training sessions vary in length, depending on the weather, and Hladikova listens to her body.

“I normally train for four hours, today was only two. It’s enough because of the heat,” she said. “Yesterday I trained for three hours, it depends on the weather.”

Elsewhere, Simon Stadler was finding it easier to adjust and said the rocketing temperatures are unlikely to have any impact on his training patterns.

“I was in Brisbane last week so I am pretty used to the heat. [I will hit] once a day and keep it a little bit quieter before the tournament, but that’s not because of the heat.

“It’s tough to play but I like it when it’s hot. If it’s too humid it’s more tough, I think to play. If it’s like this hot and dry I think it’s OK.”

So what does Stadler think of his qualifying chances? “It’s always hard to say at the beginning of year. You didn’t play tournaments before and you never know what to expect, but actually I feel good.”

Compatriot Benedikt Dorsch, meanwhile, flew in from his homeland where he was training indoors on carpet.

“It was pretty cold there – minus 10” he laughs. “I have been here since Friday and I think four or five days to get used to the heat and weather should be fine. So no problems there I hope.”

Tomorrow is set to be a scorcher but cooler climes are predicted by the afternoon.

can players take as many toilet breaks as they want to escape the heat or is there a limit? also maybe taking your own ice packs onto court could be a good idea.

They do have to drink lots of liquid when playing in such a heat ;)

How many matches do they have to win to get into the MD? 3?

3 or sometimes 2 then get in as a lucky loser, but you don't get the extra qualies points if you get in as a LL.

CooCooCachoo
01-13-2009, 04:59 PM
There won't be many LL spots of course. And they changed the rules a while ago, so if the #1 seed is in the final qualifying round and he knows there is at least one LL spot available, he might still not get in.

One from each section. So sixteen in total, plus any eventual LL.

Good question. Had to look this up in the rulebook, but found it:

O.Toilet Break
1) A player may be permitted to leave the court for a toilet break. A player is entitled
to one (1) toilet break during a best of three set match and two (2) toilet
breaks during a best of five set match. Toilet breaks should be taken on a set
break and can be used for no other purpose.
a) For doubles, each team is entitled to a total of two (2) toilet breaks in all
matches. If partners leave the court together, it counts as one (1) of the
team’s authorized breaks.
2) Any time a player leaves the court for a toilet break, it is considered one of the
authorized breaks regardless of whether or not the opponent has left the court.
3) Any toilet break taken after the warm-up has started is considered one of the
authorized breaks. Additional breaks will be authorized, but will be penalized in
accordance with the Point Penalty Schedule if the player is not ready within the
allowed time.
Toilet Visit
Case: In a best of three (3) set match, a player has used his one
toilet visit. The player informs the chair umpire that at the next
changeover he would like to take another toilet visit prior to his
serving.
Decision: The chair umpire may allow a player to leave the court
but must inform the player that any delay beyond the 90 seconds
will be penalized in accordance with the Point Penalty Schedule.
Toilet Visit: When Does Play Resume?
Case: After play has been suspended for an authorized toilet visit,
when does the “clock” start to resume play?
Decision: When the player returns to the court and has had the
opportunity to retrieve his racquet, then the chair umpire should announce “Time”. This announcement shall signal the players to
resume the match.

They already changed it last year. Am not entirely sure on the status of the rule (it might have been revoked), but they would take the four highest seeds who lost in the final qualifying round and then randomly draw from there, I think.

As of 2009:
Grand Slam Lucky Losers Changes
Thursday, December 18, 2008

The Grand Slam Committee has approved a new procedure, starting in Australia, for ordering the lucky losers. Procedure is as we previously discussed but here it is again just to be clear:

At the end of qualifying:

0, 1 or 2 lucky loser positions available
* The top 4 ranked losing players from the final round qualifying will be drawn at random for the top 4 positions;
* The remaining players shall be placed thereafter in order according to the ATP Ranking used for the qualifying seeds;

3 or more lucky loser positions available
* The number of players drawn at random will equal the number of LL positions + 2; for example - If 3 positions are available then there are 5 players in the initial random draw; If 4 positions are available then there are 6 players in the initial random draw;
* The remaining players are positioned thereafter in rank order.

Ouahab breaks Sweeting for a hard-earned three set win, 6:4 3:6 8:6.

I'm quite surprised to see Ouahab in a hard-court GS, given his HC career challenger record is 6-13. :eek:

What's his game like? I assume given the stats he's not much of a server.

Frank is out :sad:

Malisse wins 3:6 7:5 6:1, Frank was up a break in the second, then collapsed, I think the last 12 games went 10 to Malisse, 2 to Frank :mad:

He did it! Björn Rehnqvist are in to the MD! I´m soo glad for him, he´s fought for years and years and finally he´s in for the second time. He won the Australian Open for juniors back in the days. WOHOO!

Björn Rehnqvist def Marc Lopez 6-1 6-7 8-6

He don´t have any big chances in the MD but, he surely deserve a new chance! GOOD LUCK BJÖRN!
