Which are the top few tournaments with the most heat?

I was at Atlanta yesterday and it was pretty oppressive. The heat was relentless. It was difficult for the fans let alone the players. Atlanta has to be one of the hottest events of the year, not just by the high temperature but also the humidity.


Australian Open
Atlanta
Sydney
Brisbane


those have to be the hottest by some margin.

NYC gets disgusting in summer. Was there a few weekends ago and it was in the low 90s and unbearable.

Why they choose to have a tournament in Atlanta in this part of the year is beyond me though. I would never go as a fan.

I think the tournaments in Australia obviously top the list, but I must say, I recently played tennis not too far from Atlanta and by ONE hour in, I was COMPLETELY gassed and it took probably a good 24 hours over recovery. I don't think many understand just how oppressive the southern United States is in the summer, weather-wise. I challenge the countless people I always hear complaining about NYC weather to head down to the South and see if they still would complain. It would get quiet quick.

I played at the USTA tennis center in NY tonight and it was brutal - can't imagine what it must be like playing in the day in Hotlanta

Because of where it is held in Sydney, I would chose Sydney. It gets fairly hot out that way, although Sydney generally is one of the more livable cities in Australia, weather wise. It was 45 degrees celsius on the court that on one of my visits, and even the crowd needed breaks in the shade after each set. And obviously given AO is BO5, it is potentially the hottest and therefore toughest guaranteed event.

However, cities like Melbourne, Brisbane and especially Perth and Adelaide are more likely to hit the 40s and stay there for a week.

I imagine there are worse places on the tour though. Even our most northern ATP event (Brisbane) is below the Tropic of Capricorn). Surely some of those early year latin swing tournaments get difficult.

By order of their 10 year averages at the time the tournament was played: Atlanta then Washington at the top, then a 3-way between Cincy, W-Salem, and Acapulco.

Cincinnati and Washington (the humidity in DC is terrible that time of year)
