Do any of you tennis experts know if any of the players have serious ploblems with heat and exhaustion?

Obviously all players suffer but some players suffer more than others.

Have any players stated their disgust for the heat in past aussie open tournos?

Maybe Nole Djokovic and some guys from the north (ex. from Sweden)

Look for Djokevoic to retire early due to heat exhaustion and Murray to start cramping by the 4th set in any of his matches.

4th set?? You're being generous.

Baggy will be panting like a dog after 3 points, Djokovic will be moaning after a set, and Murray will do his dying swan act mid-2nd set.

Hows it been in melbourne the past week, because Murrays looked comfortable in the heat so far during kooyong. He was training in california during the break to get used to the conditions.

If they were to be taken aeriously, I'd be somewhat concerned that Murray got completely flattened by A-Rod, even if Roddick was playing well. :shrug:

So. Cal :rocker2::lol: But it's not hot here ;) a couple days were hot last week (but not as hot as in Australia), but Murray was already gone :p This has been a cold winter in California, actually. so practicing in California means nothing :lol: Maybe he worked hard and got into better shape but he didn't hit in hot weather in California lol.

Yes it is no comparision for the 100 degree weather in Australia, I look for certian people to strugle to cope with the heat.

Even San Diego not hot? :confused:

and of course for every player that struggles in the heat, there are players who love playing in really hot temps because they know they have worked hard so it gives them a big fitness advantage :p

San Diego never really gets that hot- even in the summer. It is actually a fairly moderate climate in that it never really gets cold- but if I recall correctly, it does not get the 100+ degree temperatures that places such more inner California, Arizona, Texas and Florida can get.

For example. in the summer Houston is a lot hotter than San Diego. Even cities such as Chicago and New York can get hotter than San Diego. :) My city Austin can also get blazingly hot a whole bunch of humidity. It probably bodes Andy Roddick well that he lives here.

Im from New England, but Im a Colts / Peyton Manning Fan :worship:


Its odd, i always tend to support guys to tend to choke away in big stages, but peyton is still awesome to watch.

Topic: I think murray is in better condition after training with Michael Johnson according to the BBC site, and I think Nole will have some trouble as well given his past breathing problems.

I agree that the training with Johnson will help Murray. I like that Andy and Gilbert are making his match fitness a priority and I imagine that someone like Johnson would be a great person to have as planning work outs for you. Granted- they weren't in a hot place when they were training- but I imagine that the cardio benefits will help him with the heat. (Shallow aside- Andy is actually sporting a rather nice six pack in the article about his training.)

In regards to Djokovic- he did seem to be much better at Adelaide but I wonder if that will hold up for him in five set matches.

All players have problems with heat. This is normal. I know, that many of them earn much money, but when I see these people, when they play during heat (temperature is 35 and higher ) I symphathize with them. That must be terrible. This is quite hard profession.

His fitness has been pretty suspect after the AUS 2006 open though, hes injured quite alot of the time and seems to cramp alot if he plays long matches e.g. 5 setter at wimbledon and US open.

I only know just one player who really can't stand the heat, and that's a girl: M. Krajicek she gave up last year in the AO against Mauresmo because off the heat. Here whole body was red and she had also pain.

Nalbandian must have huge problems managing that sweat rate, although he seems to do well in long matches, so it's hard to say.

This past week has actually been really mild temperatures... only mid to high 20's (except for Wednesday which was 38 however Kooyong hadn't started). However, the heat is really going to be pumping on Tuesday and Wednesday (37 and 35 degrees) so we'll get to see how the players fare in the heat.

@williaer
Yeah I've taken a look at the forecast and it looks pretty hot to me. Altough it should become milder in the second half of the week, around 23 or something I read.
Warm enough for me right now, although experiencing one of the mildest winter in europe.

^^The roofs cover the stadiums once it goes over 35 degrees doesn't it?, thats gonna make the conditions really really humid in the arena I would of thought, ouch.

Well when it gets to 35 degrees, they check the Wet Bulb Globe Temperature (I think?) reaches 28 then they close the roof. But they never open/close during a match (unless it's raining of course). Rod Laver doesn't really get humid when the roof is closed because they pump the air conditioner but it definitely changes the conditions!

This year showers have been forecasted a lot in the first week. Ew. That means I'll be spending all my days at work drying the courts :(

Roger played 2nd round at 1 pm local time. Nadal will play 2nd round at 8:30 pm LT. It´s only one example. I suppose it´s better for a good player to play in the evening than at noon, because the temp factor will not change dramatically his performance. My question: is there any rotating schedule that distributes equally the "noon hours" among the players? :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Julien Benneteau left the court under perfusion... He lead 2 sets to love but then vomited on the court etc... and they (with Paul Capdeville) kept playing while all the other matches on the other courts were delayed because of the record heat...and eventually lost.

I think Gasquet suffers terribly with the heat, he is quite fair skinned and never seems to get any tan other than his t-shirt one. Even on the beach he is still wearing a Lacoste polo! At this year's AO, especially in his first round match he seemed to really struggle. I know it can be down to fitness but even the Aussies that were at the match said it was excessively hot. I actually think AO is a bit like an endurance iron man contest rather than just a tennis tournie as the conditions are so difficult. Admittedly I say that as a delicate soul who wilts easily in the heat!:o

Gulbis just got beat by the heat (not Chardy). It's now over 100şF out on the courts. USO has enacted an extreme heat policy for the first time. Djokovic is playing soon. :scared:

Oh, and Hurricane Earl is on his way, too.

Three of the players notorious for heat related issues all are playing today, and struggling:

Baghdatis

Gulbis

Djokovic

Nole and Marcos had it much worse than Gulbis, as their matches were in the middle of the heat. Gulbis started early so he shouldn't have had as many issues, but his body failed him again. I think for some of these guys, their mental fragility and nervousness with the heat affects their bodies and makes them mentally tired, with enhances the chances of physical issues.
