Damn, water bottles melting on the court and shoes softening from the heat. I have been out playing sports in heat like that a few times, and it is absolutely miserable.

I ran a race in 102F heat once. Crossed the finish line and staggered  under the scorers tent. My coach dumped a bottle of ice water on my head. I woke up in an ambulance.

Overheated body + ice water = unconsciouness

Contrabulous Flabtraption: that hot? sweaty tennis playerettes is a good thing

doing the 9/5 C +32 thing, I get 107.6 degrees. So yeah, pretty hot.

The world No.122 called being asked to play in temperatures of 42C in Melbourne 'inhumane' and admitted he believed an unexpected guest had appeared on Court Six.

"Inhumane"? I don't know about "inhumane". I've done plenty in Phoenix at hotter than 107, and I've known people who were far more active than I was. I've been out on the days that were 120 and 122. That said, if someone passes out from the farking heat, you don't let him get up and play awhile later. What the fark?

Come on, boys! The way you're lollygaggin' around here with them balls and them rackets, you'd think it was a hundert an' twenty degree. Can't be more than a hundert an' fourteen.

Ha! I said that slipping into the Snoopy costume halfway through would do the trick. Tennis. It's all about the psychology.

Some poor tennis player is going to die then everyone will be pointing fingers at everyone else.

USTA Juniors play in hotter all the time. And you'll play at least 2 matches a day singles, at least one of doubles, and if you win enough, at the end you'll be playing two singles, a doubles, and a mixed match every day. At least.

So good job on winning that 4-6, 6-4, 7-6 (11-9) match in the quarters of singles; now you have 15 minutes by rule before you have to show up on court 6 for doubles. Have fun.

I played a match on farking asphalt at 105. The court temp was 142. You had to keep moving or it would burn your feet right through your shoes.
