Australian Open Invokes Extreme Heat Policy 

Never before since extreme temperatures were first recorded in Melbourne, has the thermometer risen above 100 degrees Fahrenheit four days in succession. And finally, 1.52pm today as the temperature hit 43.3 Celsius (109.94 Fahrenheit) degrees Australian Open tournament referee Wayne McKewen deemed the broiling conditions unsafe for players and applied the extreme heat policy at Melbourne Park.


Melbourne Police Make Gambling Arrest

Not that long ago there was a bookmaker’s tent situated on the grounds of Melbourne Park and the on-line betting website Tab Sportsbet was one of the minor sponsors of the Australian Open. But the hard line against gambling in tennis took more force as a British man accused of secretly transmitting scores from courtside in order to help gambling associates beat delays in TV coverage, appeared at Melbourne Magistrates Court.


Wawrinka Likes The Latin Spirit In Melbourne Matches

Stanislas Wawrinka felt a Latin crowd vibe as he beat Colombian Alejandro Falla to reach the third round of the Australian Open. And the Swiss was pleased to get into the spirit of the fiesta. "It's an amazing atmosphere to play the night session at the Margaret Court," said the eighth seed. "Two years ago I had the chance to play (Cypriot crowd favourite) Marcos Baghdatis. It was a crazy night."
