Australian Tennis Open 2014 – Day 4 15th Jan 2014 Thursday
As the temperatures soared above 40 deg C, play was stopped on all outside courts till 6 PM. The anticpiated match with the Williams sisters was cancelled and today (Fri) they have withdrawn from the challenge. It is expected that the heat wave will continue till Friday evening and visitors to Melbourne will wake up to totally different Melbourne on Saturday morning.
I skipped the matches today 17th Friday and decided to forego the tickets I have at Hi sense for this evening, with a 44 degC temp forecast, a record breaking 4 days over 40 deg C that was experienced in Victoria over 160 years ago.
So much for the weather.
