    ^^Not sure what the exact temperatures ended up being, but it looks like temps up to over 32 degrees centigrade (around 90 farenheit) were predicted; not that hot in my book...(we're currently in a heat wave where I live, it's supposed to be 103 and above for the next couple of weeks).

    ^Aussies always laugh at Brits and their "heatwaves" where they start stripping off and jumping in fountains when it hits 27C. But 32 is pretty warm for the players, although it's normal at the Australian Open to play in 40 degree heat (but after how brutal it was last summer - ground temperature was 69C - somebody is going to die out on the court). As for the crowd, it would be a pleasant afternoon if it was only 32. It used to be that anything over 30 was hot and 35 was a heatwave - now that seems mild.

    Think about cricket players who have to stand out there for 8 hours a day, 5 days in a row. Last summer the English team played Australia in 47 degree heat and they were dropping like flies.

    Brits aren't used to heat so anything over 80 is hot! Especially if it's humid.
