Extreme Heat Policy at the Australian Open

The Australian Open is the only major tournament that has an extreme heat policy. Under this policy, if the temperature reaches a top of 40 degrees Celsius (around 104 Fahrenheit), the roof of the Rod Laver Arena is closed and air conditioners are switch on. This happened yesterday when the organizers canceled the matches and invoke the policy for the first time when temperatures soared up to 43 degrees C. The match between Serena and Kuznetsova was held up for 45 minutes while the court roof is being closed. It takes around 25 minutes to close the Rod Laver Arena. This heat also caused the defending champion Noval Djocovik and Victoria Azarenka to retire because of heat exhaustion. The heat wave is going to last for a few more days in Melbourne.
