  1. Or that John McEnore actually got defaulted. One of the questions on Twitter was should he have been DQ'ed?
  2. https://www.heraldsun.com.au/sport/tennis/daniil-medvedev-handed-code-violation-after-striking-the-umpires-chair-with-his-racquet/news-story/09c844087a80c82d888871c2374f2e20 Daniil Medvedev handed code violation after striking the umpire’s chair with his racquet We haven’t even reached the Australian Open but we already have a contender for outburst of the summer. Watch the incredible footage of Daniil Medvedev striking the umpire’s chair with his racquet. A chastened Daniil Medvedev said he will wait to find out from the ATP if he is in line for any further sanctions after he twice struck the umpire’s chair with his racquet during his ATP Cup win over Diego Schwartzman. After a verbal confrontation with the Argentine, which Medvedev said occurred when his opponent failed to acknowledge winning a point from a let cord, the Russian then took out his frustrations on chair umpire Mohamed Lahyani. Or more specifically, the chair itself. Medvedev said he was initially frustrated when he was trying to find out whether he received a warning for the incident with Schwartzman, before Lahyani ultimately handed down a point penalty. “The second code violation for sure was deserved, so I don’t argue,” he said of striking the chair. “In fact, why I got the second one was because I was arguing with the first one because I didn’t hear it.” Medvedev said it was “not for him to decide” whether the highly unusual incident would be taken any further. “Nothing happened to the chair, nothing happened to anybody, I didn’t break my racquet,” he said. “I would say I got a code violation. I will get a fine. Usually when you get a code violation you get a fine for code violation. I don’t think there is anything else to do.” After winning the first set Medvedev went on to lose the second following the incident but bounced back to claim the match, taking out the decider. With Karen Khachanov winning his singles Russia claimed the tie and moved through to Saturday’s semi-finals.

  3. Wow what a tie breaker between Great Britain and Australia.
  4. The air quality is very bad in Melbourne today. If it is like this when the tennis is on they will not play on any of the courts, and I think the same would be for the ones that have roofs. This is the view of the Tennis centre today. Sorry that photo is upside down, up it is right in my photos lol.
  5. I am in Melbourne, we are only getting smoke haze, but there are times I can smell the fire. Did see a Kangaroo around the corner from where I live, and I am only a 20 minute train trip from the city.
  6. I have rain here at the moment but it really needs to go a lot further east. There are now more tennis players following Nik’s pledge as well as cricketers and basket ballers. Yes the smoke haze went all the way to New Zealand, and will spread to other parts of Australia, but I think this will depend on the speed and direction of the winds.
  7. The tournament that was meant to have been played in. Canberra has been moved to Bendigo in Victoria. It is the east coast that is pretty much in flames. We really need the rain to assist the firefighters.
  8. Nadal will need to pull something out of his shorts, if he is going to make this last longer than 3 sets.
  9. Henry is so funny in these matches
  10. I just wonder had that Semi been Barty v Collins just how much the Aussie crowd would have given it to Collins. Looks like heat policy will come in again 103 right now with it expected to get to 111 before the cool change comes through, an uncomfortable 91 overnight.
  11. Waiting for the day, for when they suspend play due to the player screeching lol.
  12. 3m agoJanuary 24, 2019 Joe Barton Play has been suspended for wheelchair matches due to the heat. And close to being suspended for all other matches. Currently 39 degrees or 102F, Expected to get to 84 overnight with a high of approx 105 - 110 tomorrow. TO update 5m agoJanuary 24, 2019 PLAY SUSPENDED Joe Barton IT'S officially too hot to play. The tournament referee Wayne McKewen has officially deemed that the head stress scale has reached 5.0, meaning play on outside courts is suspended and the roof of Rod Laver Arena is to be closed. Petra Kvitova and Danielle Collins are waiting in the shade until the roof is fully closed, which should only take a few minutes. All play on outside courts has been stopped. Gee reading the updates, someone is not happy at all. 2m agoJanuary 24, 2019HIGHLIGHT Collins fumes as roof closed due to heat Joe Barton The heat stress reading has hit 5! That's a suspension of play on all outside courts, and it will lead to the roof being closed on Rod Laver Arena. A smiles comes over the face of Petra Kvitova, because this will certainly advantage her now. Collins was thriving in the heat, and she's probably the only person at Rod Laver Arena who not happy about that one. There's a huge cheer from the crowd, but Collins
